Can admin roles still access my app even if they are excluded from section access?

I believe I know the answer to this (yes), but just want to confirm. If a person has admin privileges in QMC such as content,developer etc, regardless of section access on the script level, technically they can still download my app, remove section access from the data load script, and then view the objects correct?

In other words, there is no way to restrict access to individuals with admin privileges in the QMC to my apps, regardless of whatever section access I implement?

You guys are spot on!
An admin with sufficient capability rights to your app and your data sources will be able to open it without data and thereafter execute the script in order to examine an loaded application.

There is no way for a person that is not mentioned in the SA to open the app and examine the data without using the open-without-data-and-reload approach.

I'll wait for a response for someone who is an actual professional but I think so.  I say that because a while back, I locked myself out of an app while playing around with the Section Access.

Thanks for the response Justin. To clarify, you locked yourself out from section access, and someone (or yourself) with contentadmin access was able to undo it?

I think I was able to “Open without Data” and fix my incompetence, but I
don’t remember. I was running as Root Admin too.
