Create Read-Only Role via /Users
Question

Hello,


I am wondering if I can create a User Role that is read-only but only through /Users module from my environment as opposed to creating a role and adjusting the visibility of each screen manually for that particular role.



Best Regards,

No, you need to set each screen's access level per role, and sometimes some roles might have access to a few features on that screen (like editing a record) depending on their role. So, it's per screen, and sometimes even more granular than that.

Hi Yosua,

That's not how OutSystems works. There is no "read only" role, as all data manipulation is done through code, so your code needs to check roles and determine what to display on screen, and what manipulation to allow (or not).

Alright thank you for the heads up! Appreciate the answers!
