Read Only Validation Rule

Need help writing a validation rule. We need to have everyone's create/edit ability paused unless you are a few specific users. How do you write a validation rule so that users cannot add/edit?

Hello Andrea,

You can prevent users from creating/editing by creating validation rules. For example, you can prevent all users except "" user from editing work items, by following these steps:

1) Go to Settings >> Configure >> select Work Item on the left hand side >> Create New >> Validation rule;

2) Set runtime to "Every time a record is created or edited";

3) Set evaluation criteria to CurrentUser() <> "";

4) Set any error message you'd like users to see when they attempt to edit work items.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
