I am not seeing the permissions changes that I make the to field settings reflected in the admin/reports/fields/permissions . That said, the permissions I set in the field settings are being applied, it just that checking the field permissions at admin/reports/fields/permissions gives you incorrect information.

I have a content type called 'Support Ticket' which has a standard title and body. I also added a select list 'Status' with options Open and Closed. I only want admins to be able to change the Status, but authenticated users should be able to view the status.

When I go to edit the Status Field for the Support Ticket content type (admin/structure/types/manage/support_ticket/fields/field_status) I can set the Custom Permissions (see screenshot custom-permissions.png) and save the changes. However, when I view overview the permissions at admin/reports/fields/permissions (see screenshot field-permissions.png) it looks like no one could view the field_status.

Unless I'm misunderstanding the purpose of admin/reports/fields/permissions if seems like this isn't working right.

Thanks for the great module.

Two things.

The X on the permissions table doesn't mean "No one can access this" it means "Some users can't do this." In the D8 version, the icon represents this a bit better:

But the permissions are actually showing up correctly, if you interpret the X to mean what it means.

As for adding the ability to make permissions work per bundle, this is out of scope.
