Protect Sensor against accidental deletion



I would like to know if it's possible to protect some sensors and/or devices from deletion based on TAGS or Libraries i.E I want to avoid that other administrators delete a device or sensor used in a Report for example.

Thank you so much for your attention and participation.

Hi there,

I have to tell you that it is not possible to restrict the access to specific objects for administrator users. This is only possible for read-only or read/write users. For further information, please take a look at this documentation:

Kind regards,
