Am i missing anything ?

  • Can you show how you set the security? Also, when checking, are you logged in as an editor or as admin? (Admin ignores security) May 29, 2019 at 13:05
  • If you're logged in as an admin user, all permissions are disabled May 29, 2019 at 13:05
  • am logged in as admin when i set the security and logged in as editor to check if it is disabled May 29, 2019 at 13:27

You should use Field Write access right on the field item:

Remember to set the access right on the role which shouldn't have access to that field. If you set deny on sitecore\everyone you will never be able to grant that access to any user from sitecore domain anymore (except from admin accounts).
