Record Type field is editable in Lightning although the page layout says Read Only
Last updated 2 days ago ·Reference W-3270471 ·Reported By 482 users
Field Accessibility for the Record Type fields is ignored in Lightning. Setting the Opportunity Record Type field to Read Only in the layout works in classic but the field is editable if you change to Lightning.
1. Change the Record Type field accessibility to Read Only.
2. Open a Record in Classic, see that the Read Only setting is respected.
3. Open the Record in Lightning Experience, you'll see that the field is editable.
Use a validation rule to prevent changes on the field
