Read Only User Type Added to OMS

A new Read Only user type was added to OMS today which prevents users from making administrative changes in the OMS workspace.  In my opinion, this was a much needed addition which will give a customers deploying OMS in production environments some added user scoping capability.

Users with the ReadOnly user type will not be able to do the following:

  • Add\remove solutions (solution gallery hidden)
  • Add\modify\remove ‘My Dashboards’
  • Setting page is hidden
  • In the Search view, PowerBI configuration, Saved Searches and Alerts tabs are hidden

Note:  Users with the Contributor user type are unable to add/remove solutions as well.
