Field Validation in Schemas - Setting Validation: False On A Document Or A String Field
Last updated: Jun 16, 2020
Hi,In relation to field validation in schemas the documentation says "Sometimes you can set
on a document or a field to disable it.".I tried that on a document and on a string field without luck. The expected behaviour is that the field becomes disabled, i.e. that data in the field is not editable, right? The documentation also says "sometimes", so maybe it just does not apply to document or a string field?

Ahh, so validation: false just disables the validation then? (actually it seems obvious now that I read it again 😄) But isn't validation also disabled by just not defining the validation parameter?

Thanks for the readOnly tip

Indeed, it usually is, but some fields may have default validation (e.g.
) that you can disable this way, hence it only being ‘sometimes’. At least that’s my theory. Could use clearer wording though 🙂
