WEBAPI restricting users tag access

I'm setting up a WEBAPI user to enable a 3rd party application to access 5 tags in the system.  I've set it up and read access works as expected.  But during testing I added a new tag and it was automatically created with the restricted user having access. Any suggestions on how to set this up so the restricted account doesn't automatically get new tag access?  (We'd hate to have to always manually remove it, b/c someone will forget...)


Here is the setup of the restricted tag:



  • Local account to the windows server. 
  • Part of the User group.


  • Database Security: User has READ access to PiPoint DB
  • User is part of PIUsers group
  • User was manually added to the five tags.


I believe the user is automatically getting access to new tags due to it being part of the Database security Read permission.  Any thoughts?
