In our continuous effort to refine and secure our application, we've introduced an intelligent upgrade to our roles and permissions system, especially where AI features intersect with user capabilities within the application. This update focuses on a crucial aspect: making sure that users attempting to create or modify items, such as requirements or test cases, can’t do this and are clearly informed and guided when their permissions do not allow these actions.
