Field level Write ACL will not grant write access to field, and the security debugger does not show the execution of the ACL


Description

A field is still read-only even after a user is granted permission via a field-level ACL and a table-level ACL..  Further, when bringing up the Debug Security Rules, there is no log indicating the ACL being executed at all.  Not even greyed-out


Release or Environment

All

Cause

One of the causes might be that the field is defined as read-only in its sys_dictionary entry.

Resolution

Uncheck the 'Read only' box in the field's sys_dictionary record.
