am I right to assume that disabling the module (in UPM):

will prevent project admins from editing the automation rules?
we have too many tinkerers/project admins who might start 'playing around' and might abuse the system. would like to open this plugin only to system admins for the rollout time.

In other words if a crafty project admin knows the URL of the automation admin page, or can send requests directly the the REST API they'll still be able to create/edit rules.
To solve this properly we need to implement https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-75 (an actual configuration UI allowing you to define fine grained access and security checks for project admins).
we faced the same problem as any large company - higher probability of project admin fools in it. So we resolved it by hidding the element in banner with :
and implement the automation rules on request.
@Andreas: go ahead and implement simple permission model here. Thank
