User Accounts with limited access control to Sterling File Gateway components

Sterling B2B Integrator should provide options to create & assign DENY permissions to Sterling File Gateway components.

At present Sterling file gateway does not have the options to create permissions for specific components. We'll have to use the out of the box groups which preassigned permissions.

There are areas in business which require access to visibility at the same time restricting access to developer components, for example, A user from a client relationship business area would only want to monitor the day to day files, however the user should not have access to create/edit/delete partners.

With such limitations, its difficult to attain the level of access control the customers request for.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

This will be used so that users won't have the ability to remove groups, communities, etc.
