Read-only field in RTC v3.0.1


Gary Dang (59328350) | asked Oct 13 '11, 5:03 p.m.
We want to make a field read-only so that the user can not modify the content of the field on the form but we want to allow system update (e.g. update the field via OSLC using integration account). Is there a way to do this in RTC v3.0.1?

I believe one approach is to make that field readonly for all roles that
a normal user is given, and then create a special role that is only
given to the integration account, and make that field writable by that role.

In the project configuration under the editor presentations, select the appropriate editor. Find and edit the attribute.

A dialog window will open up for that attribute. There you will find a Read-Only option. The default is inherit instead select True.

Now the attribute is readonly at the presentation level but editable via OSCL.

Note, though, that there are generic ways of modifying a field (such as
through the work item query result display), which would not be affected
by marking a field as read-only in a particular editor presentation.
