    How do I get rid of the EDIT UI action on knowledge portal?

      EDIT Button.png

      Hi there,


      Please help me get rid of the "edit" UI button from the knowledge portal for all users.

          By default, the edit button shows up if the user has security rights to edit the knowledge article. If you have to remove it, it's actually rendered in the ui macro kb_view_common_header_toolbar which is called by the ui macro kb_view_common which is called by the ui page kb_view. I don't think it's worth it to take ownership of the ui macro in question just to hide the button, though.
