read only user silence 800xA
We like to give a non operator user the ability (only industrial it user group) to silence alarms. It looks like you need the operate permission to do this. I found the below question but it doesn't work as there is no property to change.
Any one know a solution?

1) Workplace Audible alarm need Operate permission to silence.
2) External Alarm on the other hand is possible to configure to whatever property permission you seem fit. EA service run as service account and will bypass any security set on the OPC item used to trigger the EA (horn, light, etc.). With a Security Definition located on the EA signal object, you can give an otherwise "operateless" user Operate on this item only.
I just happened to check Alarm List permission today (Aspect System Structure -> Alarm aspect system -> Alarm List Type -> Alarm List Category -> Permission
The Silence command actually has its own setting...
I did not have time to experiment with changing the default setting (Operate) to something else... please try and report back.
