How can we improve the PI Server?

Add read perrmission to the Event Frame Template

It would be great to add read permission to the security table of EF Template. Now you can't deny read access to one specific EF Template. You can only deny access to all templates and to generated EFs, but not to specific template.

This can be an issue in DataLink for example. Here you don't want to list all EF Templates, but only EF Templates which should be accessible for specific user.

    It will not be possible to dis-allow read permission on templates.

    However, by default, Event Frames get their read permission from the ReadData permission of the template. Would it be adequate to remove the templates for which the user does not have ReadData permision from the search list in Datalink (and PSE, Coresight, etc?).
