I've added a couple of custom buttons on the Publish Chunks of the Content and Experience Editors Publish Strips. Right now, these custom buttons show for everyone, but I only want them to show up for certain roles, let's say "RoleA" for clarity.

I thought this could be done by only allowing read access on the button for users with the "RoleA" role assigned to them. However, when I log in with a test user that doesn't have this role (nor is an administrator), the button is still visible and clickable.

How do set it up so that this button is only visible for users with RoleA and Administrators?

I'm working with Sitecore 9.0.1 at the moment.

Read access is inherited by default.

You need to stop inheritance of it for Sitecore Client Users first and then add Read access for your custom role:
