Would be very useful if server allows to prevent a specific user from creating/editing or deleting data. Some institutions would like to allow an external collaborator to access data in Omero, but prevent that collaborator from making changes, or from uploading additional content.

It seems that we could handle that on the server side by adding new role "spectators" and limit API to read-only methods.

Summary of devteam conversation with Ian Munro:

I've been asked to clarify whether the ability to give public access to say some of the files in a dataset 
(without moving to a public group) is in the pipeline

Will Moore
If you restrict access to the webclient, and you're prepared to write your own access control there
… you can do a fair bit but not everything

ian: https://trac.openmicroscopy.org.uk/ome/ticket/11653

Will Moore
Currently the web has a "public user"
so can access everything that this user can access - but has the option to restrict access based on other criteria
E.g. you can filter by url regex currently but you could choose a different criteria

Don't suppose we could filter by tag ?

Will Moore
I think you could
I can see this working ok for making the imageviewer only available for images with a particular tag
but configuring the webclient UI to show a restricted set of data is much harder

Will: Ok thanks for the help I'll pass that  along.
