What I need to do
I have some user account fields that should be administrator-only (read/write/edit). For example, the IP address used to register.
So, I want to restrict access to administrators.
Current state of field permissions in Drupal 8 (as of Feb 19, 2016)
- In Drupal 7, I used the Field Permissions module. However, a Drupal 8 version is not currently being worked on by the maintainers.
- There is a discussion on putting field permissions in Core, but this has been going on for seven years and is marked as "postponed."
