Doc Text:
Previously, the web console did not handle access control checks for resources when permission was given for a specific resource by name rather than all resources by type. This meant that the resource would be read-only in the UI, and you would have to edit the resource using the oc command. This has been addressed in 4.2. The web console now more accurately handles permissions, performing self-subject access reviews on individual resources.

Comment 1 Samuel Padgett 2019-07-23 12:00:36 UTC
This is a limitation of how we performed RBAC checks in 3.11. It has been addressed in OpenShift 4.2 where we have switched to SelfSubjectAccessReview requests for more precise checks.

console image: quay.io/openshift-release-dev/ocp-v4.0-art-dev@sha256:f58dc76257ca8c4abf49c18cc982a529a0edbb797e921a4a7a02ad6909ac1112

Tried the scenario in comment 1 on ocp 4.2 env with above version with step:
1. Create the both the roles as mentioned in comment 1. 
2. Grant both the role to the user to view namespaces/projects and edit configmaps
3. Try logging in to the console and then try editing the configmap. Now the "Save" button on edit yaml page is enabled. Update content in the configmap, then click "Save", it succeeds.
