I'm new to SharePoint so please excuse me if this question has been asked before.
I've created a Access 2013 web app and loaded it to my SharePoint 365 site. Everything is working as expected but I have a small problem I'm trying to resolve. I need to hide the Site Actions (gear icon) menu shown below and/or prevent all users except admin users from downloading the app to MS Access.
I know I can lock the app before uploading it to a site and the menu won't show any longer, but if I do that, I no longer have access to the DB connection string which I need as I've built a custom admin and reporting tool which connects to the DB.
So, if I can lock the app and still get access to the connection string, that would be ideal, but failing that, if I can somehow hide the actions menu, I'm happy with that as well. Any help will be appreciated.
