Using business process definitions to manipulate read-only fields

Hi all,

I have a status field that I want to be read-only (so users can't manipulate it) and have the value changed by business process definitions only.  This doesn't seem to be possible.  Business process definitions are denied the ability to manipulate fields if they're read only.  I cannot understand the reason for this.  

Any advice much appreciated.

  • Thanks for your response Jeff.  I am a system administrator, rather than a developer, so I don't have the ability to implement what you've suggested. I note that applying a "Read Only If" formula via the Studio seems to be the equivalent of your suggestion, however it still blocks the BPM from accessing the field.
