In the eDisclosure industry using SQL is a common way of interfacing with tools. Clearwell uses an SQL backend that currently only support engineers can access. In some situations it can be helpful to identify what Clearwell is storing on the database. My suggestion would be to keep the read/write access that support engineers have access to currently and add a support feature in the systems tab for read only access to the database.

I disagree.  The way to solve this would be through API access if at all.

I agree with kunshige, a well designed and documented API would definitely be the way to go on this. Not all information is in the MySQL, it can be contained in indexes too - for this reason it'd be better (in my opinion) to tie it all together in an API.
