Create a read only lookup table

Path Finder

I have a user which needs to be able to write one specific lookup table which has to be shared globally. I have to control with the permission settings on the lookup  as I have several users/roles where each role has to grant write access to a different lookup table.

What i have observed so far:
in order to be able to write a lookup table with | outputlookup xxxx.csv, the user needs the capability output_file. This capability is be default granted trough the predefined user role.

With the capability output_file, the permission configured in local.meta is ignored,  outputlookup writes happily any lookup file, regardless of the permission, even files which don't exist.

 

What i am missing here?
