Question:
We have requirement where we need to lock Resource Department and Location fields so they are read only in the Resource Financial Properties.
Can you help provide some solution for this.
Answer:
The way to make these Resource Department and Location fields read only is to not grant the following access rights to the end users. However this may also place some limitations on what the user can do.

Resource - Edit Financial - All
Resource - Edit - All

It is not possible to use a process to lock these fields as the Resource object is not available for selection in a Processes.
