Automate UI modification elements should be grayed out (inaccessible) if a user doesn't have access

Right now I can see in a couple places where users with viewonly permissions appear to be able to modify things they shouldn't be able to. In the application view, they are able to click on the buttons to delete an application, and in the Chef Infra Servers view they appear to be able to edit roles, environments, data bags etc. If a user attempts to do so, they get an error message stating that they don't have permissions, however, it would be much nicer, and more assuring to customers that these features weren't clickable at all. Not just an error at the last minute, but inability to access the modals altogether would be much more preferable.
