  • How to lock the Category field on a goal plan so that only certain roles are able to change the Category.


  • Goal Management


First, define the category field like this. (The label will not show in the UI, it is just to be able to assign permissions to the field.)

  <field-definition id="control-category-element" type="text" required="true" detail="false" viewdefault="on" showlabel="false" field-show-coaching-advisor="false" cascade-update="push-down">
    <field-label lang="en_US">control-category-element</field-label>

Then permission this field as you need, for example:

  <field-permission type="read">
    <description><![CDATA[Everyone can read the category]]></description>
    <field refid="control-category-element"/>
  <field-permission type="write">
    <description><![CDATA[HR can write to the category]]></description>
    <field refid="control-category-element"/>
