Lock a form from being edited in the CMS


Is there a way to restrict a specific form to not be editable by certain groups in the CMS?

Are you referring to xform creation?

Hi, yes. We have a standard xform block and in the CMS we can create basic forms. However, our clients typically uses a more complex form, either by layout of content. So I want to be able to import a customized form. However, it seems that when you do that and try to edit the form inside the CMS interface, it breaks the form. I want to lock the form from being edited by our clients. Does that make more sense?

Thanks for the clarification. There is no built-in way (that I know of) that will restrict users from editing an xform via access rights. I suppose one workaround is that since xforms is a type of property on a page or block, you can probably make the xform property read only. For example:

I've come across guides on how to make individual xform fields read-only, but I'm assuming you want to prevents users from going into the Edit xform interface.
