Can we make the actual values on the budget non-editable ?
We have developed a custom integration where the budget actuals for a project are imported from an external system. Meaning, the workplan actuals are not rolled into the budget but the project budget actual values are updated via backend through custom code. This interface is working perfectly fine.
The issue is that in order to do so, the Cost and effort policy on the project is set to "Manually Enter Actuals". Now this opens up the possibility of the Project Manager to change the actual values that have been imported. Is there any way to lock down or make the budget actual values non-editable ? Note:- We still want the Project Manager to be able to enter the planned budget.

Even i am also looking for the same functionality and i got to talk to HP for the same. SR doest work and they told it is not there in PPM as of now. But one of HP expertise person told me it can be done. I am not sure may be it is included in future versions of PPM.
I am limiting the users to update the actuals using triggers in DB as of now.
