We have a Lightning-Record-Edit-Form using layout-type = full to create and update Account. However, due to business needs, we decided to expose limited fields to the users via the layout in our LWC form using lightning-input-field.
Now the business logic needs us to populate values for fields that are not in the UI using the user inputs in the LWC. Since we don't have these fields exposed to UI in the first place we are not able to use this.template.querySelectorAll('lightning-input-field') to manipulate the values for these fields.
Is there any way to still leverage the Lightning-Record-Edit-Form submit capability to update fields that are not part of LWC lightning-input-field html?
