PAW - Allow option to set cube view as read only for all users

I kindly request you to enable a configuration option in PAW to set a view as read-only for all users.

Below is my use  case - 

As a developer, I often set up various views in a book for reporting purposes and prefer to prevent users from updating data in these views.

Having the option to easily set a view as read-only for all users would greatly streamline the process. This means I wouldn't have to manage underlying security for that cube or set up additional security measures. A simple option like this would significantly reduce maintenance work and complexities.

    This idea is not under consideration. Security can already be implemented in the TM1 model to block write access to a cube or view within the cube. This may be implemented with cube, element, or cell security in the TM1 model.
