Have a look at the Aspect Category role bindings for faceplate
The default is "no role" which means access to everyone; by changing role you can prevent a user from reaching an aspect.
However, the lack of role causes an ugly error message.
By altering the Aspect Precendence you can change the default left mouse button action from faceplate to some other aspect (Trend, Alarm List, etc) to prevent a left click from presenting the above error window.
Aspect Precedence has been mentioned before on AKS (search...). Each user can be given a unique setting by altering his/her Object Handling Profile Values. You probably want to have two APLs; one for trusted operators (default) and one for non-trusted.
do you mean deny write or deny read/write ?
For an single element (property) or a whole aspect ?
When entering Faceplate Config View, you have a tab called Element.
There you can configure User Role per aspect added to the Faceplate.
Maybe what you are looking for ?
If it is a single element you want to do write deny, then you eg can configure Edit permissions in CBM, if you have a AC800M controller, and configure your element to be writable or not.
If you want to have no faceplate for your objects, go to object str, control system and your library. Then omit face plate for selected object.To avoid operator from command you have to set permission for its user group. For more permission, set read/write rules for elements properties in control connection.
