When editing app properties in my Splunk SHC as an admin, why am I getting a "You do not have permissions to edit this configuration." banner?

Details:

Search Head Cluster (SHC)
v6.5.2
Logged in as admin

When going to manage apps and then clicking Edit properties the edit page opens, but has a red "You do not have permissions to edit this configuration." banner at the top of the page. There is no save button, only a cancel option.

This is expected behavior in a SHC environment. If you need to edit any properties, you should do it at the Deployer level and then push the shcluster-bundle down to the members. This is to keep apps from behaving differently or having different settings and properties inside of the SHC.

So then that link should be renamed from "Edit properties" to "View properties".

So why would the "Edit properties" link be there at all? If it was simply a method of viewing the properties it should be renamed to "View properties".
