Remove read access from admin user in aem 6.5



Hi All ,

We have a requirement where we need to remove read access of Aem admin user under /home so that it will not be able to impersonate. Is it possible as I can see while removing the rights it again gets created.
Any hint will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You will never be able to satisfy that requirement.


The 'admin' user is a super user that cannot be modified.


Note 'admin' and an 'Administrator' are NOT the same thing at all.


Also seek to understand the WHY behind that requirement -- so so so many features require jcr:read on /home
