User added to DQ project able to modify his/her own Role. Very poorly designed breaking security requirements

The user added to DQ project is able to modify Role assigned to him/her. Only the DQ project owner should be allowed to add users and assign Roles. This is a poor design breaking the security rules. This needs an enhancement to change these roles by Project owner only. Thanks

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Login to ICP4D with User A

  2. Create a DQ Project

  3. Go to Settings

  4. Go to Users and Groups

  5. Click on Add Users and Groups

  6. Select a random user , lets say User B

  7. Select the User B and assign "Information Analyzer Data Steward" role.

  8. Click on Save

  9. Now logout from ICP4D

  10. Login to ICP4D with User B

  11. Navigate to Projects that was created in Steps 2

  12. Go to Settings

  13. Click on User B

  14. Now Assign role Information Steward Business Analyst

  15. Click Save

Expected Result: User B should not be able to change his/her role.
