How to get around disabled fields in CRM 2013

Posted: May 28, 2014 in Other

While testing some logic I noticed a method to ‘enable’ fields that are set as read only through the form.

When a field is set as read only, you would expect that a user can never enter a value (without using JavaScript or devtools to enable them).

Here’s what I did:

  1. Open the record
  2. Deactivate the record
  3. Activate the record
  4. Change any disabled fields which are now editable
  5. Refresh the form and the values will be saved and read only again

This is with CRM 2013 rollup 2.
