KDB WORM (Write once and read many) function

I’m wondering if KDB has WORM (Write once and read many) function.

We are trying to see if KDB can be used for some reporting purposes. 

We would like to have some table read/write and some table read only after write. Is that possible?

Hello @renbright,

Thank you for your question!

I'm not familiar with an out-of-package kdb+ WORM function as described above - perhaps someone can contradict this?

At a permissions level, read/write permissions can be set at a file level on disk. Permissions can also be either granted or restricted on selected entities within user groups at the KX Control level. 

 I welcome engagement from fellow kdb+ Engineers and community contributors to specifically discuss the WORM function in question.

Kind regards, 

Leah
