User access rights to notifications only



I've been searching the Knowledge base for a solution, but so far haven't found anything close to what I'm trying to reach.

I created a new user group and added a new user to it. This group has only access to a specific group of devices. So far all goes well. However, I want to limit this user so they can't change or add new sensors, but I want to let them manage their notifications themselves. So if they want to receive a notification on a specific sensor when it goes down for example, I want them to add this themselves. Is this possible? If I create the user as Read-Only, they cannot add notifications. Same goes if I give the user group only read access to the device group, they don't have the ability to add notifications or change them.

Thanks, Michiel.

Not without giving them rights to modify sensor settings as well. Sorry, but this is a very specific user right, that we currently do not have a role for.
