I have a custom User Profile that has read-only access to Account fields, but I would like to make a custom button on Account detail page, that allows these Users specifically edit address fields (Street, City, Postal Code etc.) bypassing these read-only field permissions using only configuration and not using Apex code or VF pages or URL hacking. Any suggestions?

Only Trigger or APEX code can run on system mode and override the CRUD settings. To achieve this requirement you need some custom code not possible only through configuration.

  • There is a way to do it through configuration, I am sure, but only expert could tell me this.

    @Pmal12 unless user has an Edit access to Account and fields, that user will not able to edit those fields through Configuration. Only option is to go for Customization. I support Avijit's answer. Otherwise wait for some other experts to chime in Commented Jun 22, 2017 at 14:11
