Restricting Editing during transition

Good Day,

I want to restrict editing of a transition screen

Do I use properties for this or conditions?


Is it possible to hide a field on a transition screen for a certain groups?

None of these options are quite right on their own

  1. Properties will just stop everything being editable by a group or groups (or roles etc), but not on the transition screen because it's not an edit, it's a transition
  2. Conditions will stop the transition being available to the users
  3. You can remove a field from the transition screen, but that applies to everyone

Two options

  • Merge 2 and 3 above.  Create two transitions, with the same end point, but different screens, one with the fields and one without.  Then place conditions on them that make them exclusive and done by group (e.g. on the first, "only group 1 can do this" and on the second "only group 2 can do this")
  • Put validators on the transition so that if a user does try a "bad" edit, they are returned to the screen with a refusal message
