Verify role permissions

The final step for setting up content permissions is to verify that the role works as expected. 

  1. Log in as a user with the assigned role and attempt to edit an entry containing the field we specified when setting restrictions.

  2. All other fields should have a padlock icon, indicating that the entry cannot be modified by the user.

Roles and Permissions: Example editor with field-level permissions

The Proofreader role is able to edit the Product name and Description fields, but the slug field is locked (with a tooltip explaining why)
