In initialization state i want set a field as read only state? Is possible?

What exactly is an "initialization" state? What is the first state of your work flow - that is the target state of the "start action"?

I think you should use Required Attributes for Type and State in attribute customization.

I meant to say "Read Only Attributes for Type and State". Sorry about that. Apply this to the Work Item Save operation in Operation Behavior.

Read Only behavior

Use the built in operational behavior "Read-Only Attributes For Type and State". Pick the state that is reached after saving the first time (e.g. new) as state and the Read-Only Attributes For Type and State precondition works as requested.

See for more info.
