I don't want certain layouts to be seen by certain users. However, some of the fields needs to be modified in those layouts by certain scripts.
I tried but those users who don't have access to certain layouts (restricted from manage > security) can't trigger the scripts which access the fields from those layouts.
Hence, I have given access to those layouts but have hidden them from layout menu. This still don't solve my problem since I am always worried that due to some mistake the user will have access to those layouts which they shouldn't see.
Isn't there anyway to run the scripts and access the fields from those restricted layout while at the same time they are restricted using the security?
