This can be done with no coding. Go to Lightning App Builder via 'Edit Page' option, select your component and in the properties panel on the right, specify the condition under 'Set Component Visibility'. See below screenshot for clarity:

Also, FYI: Winter 19 release extends this feature beyond Record and User fields by allowing Custom and Standard User Permissions as well (not Permission Sets).

  • You could have up to 10 filters and set a combination of AND/OR conditions around them as well. And you are right, visibility filters aren’t supported for individual tabs inside the Tabs out-of-the-box standard component, but can be set for components housed within those tabs. If you want to show/hide the tabs along with the components, I am afraid you must resort to custom component via lightning:tabset and lightning:tab.

There are 2 ways

  1. Using Lightning Pages Activation: Whenever you create a lightnining pages you can make it available to certain profile and apps. This will make sure that the only certian profiles can see the page which has that components embedded. enter image description here

  2. Using Lightning component Visibility: Add that lightning component into all pages. Then in the visibility session of lightning component add visible only if profile is some certain profile.
