Ignore user permission is not functional

Hello All,

I have created a new DocType.

In newly created DocType I have added some fields (e.g Employee) which are having Specific Role Permission (e.g Employee is visible if Employee is assigned).

Now I want Employee List to be available when I access this DocType.

For that I am keeping Ignore User Permission checked.

But system doesn’t allow data fetching and listing all Employees.


That’s not how ignore user permission works. It’s not completely intuitive, but Ignore User Permissions works at the doctype level, not the field level. There’s some discussion about it here:

As for how best to deal with the scenario you’re trying to do, you can either use field permission levels (0,1,2,etc) or write custom code.
