      Description

      This ticket is to implement role based filtration of SOLR metadata fields, configurable on the SOLR Metadata display field configuration page.

      --Use Case--
      Often times administrators may wish to restrict access to specific metadata fields in the metadata display.

      --Technical Approach--
      Investigation suggests this can be done in much the same way Islandora SOLR Search Facet permissions are implemented. However, in this case, the configuration for the specific field exists as a 'field' record of db type blob. Thus, including permissions in the configuration should be fairly straight forward.

      --Test Case--
      *Create a metadata display
      *Add fields and permissions (Roles) as desired
      *Use the display (for a CModel of your choice)
      *View an object of this type of CModel.
      *Metadata display fields visibility can now be controlled VIA roles configuration.

      --Impact--
      To my knowledge, this should not have any critical implementations, since no DB Schema update is required.
