A simple user (with shell access) can access some configuration (but not modify) like Ejabberd, by left applications shortcuts. By clicking shortcut user can access application: some app returns error, some others returns the configuration (not editable).

Proposed solution

Best solution can be to hide shortcut if user do not have permission to access application.

Alternative solutions

An alternative solution can be to unify all applications returning identical error.

See also

Three examples:

  • ejabberd: returns visible config page, but if user try to modify get error
  • antivirus: returns reading config error
  • web server dashboard: loading loop

Note that into Applications list user can't see these applications.
In Applications list are missing public applications as Webtop, Roundcube, Nextcloud: to complete work we can add also it in list, without right control menu.

The application shortcuts come from a template and can't be changed on the user login.
Reworking how the user can access non-delegated apps requires a big effort without a real outcome.

The user accessing the non-delegated application can't edit the configuration, this is the important thing.
If you want to hide the access to a non-delegated application, just do not add it as a shortcut.

I'm going to close this feature request as wontfix, feel free to promote such discussion on community forum.
