Configuring contextual security for the list editor

The list editor enforces existing access control rules (ACLs) and additional security controls to restrict editing from a list.

The list_edit security operation specifically controls the ability to edit information in a list. Apply this operation in the same manner as the write operation to limit list editing for fields that require the user to navigate to the form. Reasons you could require a user to edit a field in a form include complex UI policy constraints or other policies you have in place.
  • write and list_edit access to the field
  • write and list_edit access to any dependent fields of the field
  • write and list_edit access to any fields that depend on the field being edited

To configure access controls, navigate to System Security > Access Controls. The following examples use the list_edit security operation to restrict list editing in certain contexts.
