Is there a way to lock fields in a record that are updated through the API?

Use case:
We use the API to update the airtable according to certain parameters on our company servers/backend. These fields ideally need to be locked as the scripts on the backend/server side does searches for these fields and if they are accidentally changed the endpoint s missed.

If you are talking about the field names, we typically add a symbol in front of the field. Ie: “⊣Name” It signifies that it is part of the integration and are a “do not change name” signifier.
