Day1 Question in reference material no answer provided:


Can read only fields be accessed by the API?

You can read the data through API. But you will not be able to write in those fields as those are read only.

Moreover, you need to notice that if it is read only at field level or Page Layout level.

If it is at Field level you will not be able to edit the field even using API.
