First thank you for helping me.

In a standard LightSwitch application the oData service is automatically generated for each entity defined.  To see which entities are available through the oData service navigate to http://<lightswitchapp>/ApplicationData.svc.

Now suppose I have two entities defined, Products and Categories.  Let's say for security purposes I only want the Products category to be made visible and Categories hidden and inaccessible. Furthermore, the Products entity should be read-only.

How do I do this?
