I dont the "Edit"-Button to be rendered (neither in the Page Panel nor in the Context-Menu) cause my Topic repesents remotely stored information which cannot be edited from within DM. Is there a mechanism to do that or do I just manipulate the DOM?

Thanks for the hint.

In the type's View Configuration you could set the "Locked" setting to true. The instances of locked types are not editable in principal, regardless of access control.

You can do this either interactively, programmatically (in a migration), or declaratively (in a migration). As a declarative example see the "File" type (part of the Files module), which is not editable:

    topic_types: [
            value: "File",
            uri: "dm4.files.file",
            data_type_uri: "dm4.core.composite",
            view_config_topics: [
                    type_uri: "dm4.webclient.view_config",
                    composite: {
                        dm4.webclient.locked: true

Does this help with your case?
