Options to access sas Metadata roles defined in SAS Management Console from SAS EG

I need to make the dataset read only vs updatable based on the roles given to the logged in user in the SAS SMC. Can you please suggest with the options available.

Let the RDBMS or OS handle that. SAS cannot overrule those settings.
Just make sure that the user that logged in to SAS is the same user as running on the OS/RDBMS. 
Using groupaccounts for those kind of access will require your sas system is the only way for accessing the OS and RDBMS. Any other way will make any auditability traceablity an useless argument with group accounts. As this kind of security compliancy is a very nasty topic for sas people you could have a big challenge.
