Workspace admins should NOT bypass security when launch import actions

Workspace admins should NOT bypass security when launch import actions

As a "workspace admin" flagged user, I would like to have the behavior consistent with the security and roles set up to the user when it is launched an import action. 

 

Currently, when a user is flagged as "workspace admin" if launches an import action can update data cells that the user does not have access (through "security selective access" or DCA flags). 

 

 I do not find any advantage that a user has the ability to update read-only data cells (or cells that the user does not have access) only because he/she is flagged "workspace admin". This is happening even the role associated with the user is other than "Full access". 

 Maybe this was implemented to have a high-level user to bypass the front-end restrictions, but, in my opinion, it is more important to have the user consistent with their role and security when using the front-end. 

 

The "workspace admins" are consistent with their security and roles when they are using the front-end, except when they launch import actions. Why have this exception? 🙂

 

I hope it will be solved. 

 

Thanks

Alex

Especially when you want to do testing of DCA, have to turn off the WA and then have it turned back on again. Very frustrating.
