Read-only mode

If you have read-only access to the environment, you will still be able to view the list of backups that have been performed and the backup schedule if an automated backup has been created. You will not be able to create new backups or modify existing backups.

The gear icon, Restore, and Backup buttons will be deactivated and the Options (...) menu for each backup wil be hidden.
