If you have a read-only operator role in combination with an operator, advanced operator, or author role, you can potentially interact with objects for which you do not have write permissions. In this scenario, when you try to update an object for which you do not have write permissions, the operation will be successful. However, an exception will be thrown, and the console will exit.
For example, assume that you select an alert in an Alerts view that is generated from an agent to which you do not have write permissions. Then, if you select Close Alert, you receive a "The user domain\username does not have sufficient permission to perform this operation" message.
However, if you select the same operation from the Set Resolution State option, the Administrator Console throws an exception. Similarly, when you try to use the Recalculate Health feature in the Health Explorer, the same failure occurs.
After you apply this hotfix, you will always receive a permission denial message.
