I am trying to give edit permissions for my partners on a custom object, but on the same time, I need them to have READ only on some of the fields that they see.
The custom object includes a text c_field that should NOT be edited, but it is visible as read only on the page layout of the partner.
Dongle ID is the field I need as read only.
I want to point that there is NO option to remove the required setting from the page layout - I assume this is because the field itself has the isRequired settings
- blue dot is: always on layout
- red star: required field.
Starting with the field property on the page layout shows
as you can see, the field is required, and the 'read only' CB is greyed out.
How can I change that?
Checking the Field Accessibility Settings, I get a message that the field is required because of Page Layout
Indeed, that's what I want to change ^^ - I want to set is as read only.
One option I have in mind, is to remove the required CB - and set a validation rule on the field. But I don't like that approach (even that it will work).
EDIT: This is what I see in the permission sets -
NOTE: As for profiles: I don't want to create another profile for this specific partner - that's why I use permission sets. (and checking in the profile object settings - the behaviour is the same)
