Im a new in nocodb, its possible to use nocodb with a ready-only mysql user ? Will be possible to create field in nocodb interface ?

Hello! Obviously with a read-only user you cannot create fields on the db, because Noco must have the ability to write and eventually modify the database.

However, if you need a user to only be able to read and not edit/create, you can create a user with the viewer role.

Yes i understand, but will be great feature if Nocodb can work with a readonly user from database and allow to create custom new fields without sending to the Database, keeps the original database untoched.
