Publisher Portal in Read-only Mode

Users who have the view/read only permissions can only view the API, API Product and Service details in the Publisher portal and in addition they can also review all the analytics related details.

The read only user should have the following scopes - apim:api_view and apim:publisher_settings

WSO2 API-M provides a pre-defined role named internal/observer, which is used to group all the read-only users.
