Current behavior

When I do not have permission to Delete content the ‘Delete’ option is still available under the ‘ACTIONS’ ellipsis. If you click ‘Yes’ on confirmation popup it correctly does not allow the operation and shows a ‘Forbidden’ message.

Expected behavior

When I do not have permission to Delete content the ‘Delete’ option is not available or is disabled under the ‘ACTIONS’ ellipsis.

Minimal reproduction of the problem

  1. Have a user who can read but not delete content for a schema that has some content
  2. Navigate to the Contents view of that schema
  3. Click the ellipsis (…) in the ‘ACTIONS’ column for a piece of content
  4. Click ‘Delete’ in the dropdown
  5. Click ‘Yes’ in the confirmation popup

Obviously the actual delete action is not allowed in the end so not a major issue, but it may make users feel like they do have permission.

Will the ‘ACTIONS’ column automatically disappear if that last option is removed? If so that could be beneficial to users by taking up less room when viewing content lists.

I will disable the action for now. I do not want to dig into the rabbit hole of removing columns or dropdowns and so on.
