NAV 2015 database in a read only mode

Hi ,

For an audit purpose we would like to restore a NAV2015 database and make it read only from SQL side so that no one can make any changes to the database. This is what we've been doing in the past with NAV2009 and 3.7 databases so that users can login but can't make any changes to the data within the database. 

When we do this in 2015, the service tier can't connect to the database with the following error.  One way to fix this is to assign all users with super read only role except the service tier account so that no one can make changes to data.

I'm wondering if anyone has come across this issue and found any workarounds?
