There is no user role for a monitoring user who is not capable of remote dashboard administration. You need to allow other users to see the graphs and monitors without letting them modify any settings. There is no user role with read-only privileges

How to repeat:
Setup and attempt to create a read-onlu user account.

Suggested fix:
Add a new User Role with read-only permissions. They should be able to configure any user-specific display options but not be able to affect any other monitoring or reporting settings.
