Error description

  • Restricted users who cannot submit records are able to create a
    new query.
    
    To reproduce the behavior with a SAMPL defect tracking database:
    Set up Site Configuration>Security Options so that user "lead"
    is a Restricted user that can only run "All Defects" query.
    
    Out of the box, the restricted user can run the query, submit
    records, but cannot create a new query.
    
    Then, create a user group that contains everyone except "lead"
    and set the submit action to "User Groups" where that new group
    is the only one able to submit records.
    
    Log in as "lead" - the user can no longer create a record, and
    is able to run "All Defects" but now has the ability to create a
    new query that cannot be saved.  The user should not be able to
    create a new query - only run the query defined by the Security
    Options.
