I am in the exact same position. I love the better integration, however now that the two components are integrated there is a need to include the ability to exclude NCM from the Orion web interface for some users. I tried a few ways to limit the view, however a basic user still has the ability to view configs.
A 'No Access' role is exactly what needs to be added to the system.

I am moving this to the NPM Feature Request forum for the PM to comment on.
