Configuring contextual security for the list editor

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.
