How to show limited or restricted list view?

My requirement is something like this:
For example for a DocType
There are fields such as

  • Category
  • Sub-Category

I would like to restrict the list view to users with allowed/permitted Category only or Sub-Category data only.
I have looked at permission levels. Permission level does not fit my requirement. There are only 10 levels. If I have 100 category or sub-category, how do I restrict the permission?

Any suggestion would be helpful. Is there a way to customize the list view js?


Category and Sub Category is Different DocType?

If yes then you can allow certain Category and Sub-Category to users.

Category and Sub-Category are fields within the docType. For that I have to give permission userwise which seems tedious.

To make it more clearer, A manager should be allowed to see the list of employees who reports to him only. Think of category as a department.

Thanks for the response @mangroliya


This can be done easily.

Let’s say Purchase Manager should see all Employees of Department - Purchase

To achieve this Go to Users → User Permission and the permission as follows:
