MS SQL - Change login Account to View Table Value Function as Read-Only

I have a login account called 'DBProcessMe'.

I want to change the permissions of this login account to open a table value function called
'FnProcessMyData' as read only.

Currently, users can open this function and

(1) alter the function, or (2) create a duplicate function by changing 'Alter to "Create".

I only want them to read the function only.

What is the best method to do this?

I am familiar with the system tables, database members, roles, etc.

You should REVOKE the ALTER and CONTROL for that user and anyone else that should not be allowed to and add just VIEW DEFINITION rights - just right click the function in SSMS and under Properties - > Permissions you will see those on the right botom pane.

Using T-SQL is something like:

USE YourDBname
GO

GRANT VIEW DEFINITION ON DBProcessMe TO sql_user;
REVOKE ALTER,CONTROL,TAKE OWNERSHIP ON DBProcessMe FROM sql_user;
