A brief description of the problem:
I would like to ask for help as I cannot make it so that when the checkbox is removed the range corresponding to that cell is unchecked, in this case it only removes the entered range of A2:E2 but I would like to remove the one for each corresponding one.

Quisiera quitar el de cada uno correspondiente y solo quito uno


A small code sample that reliably reproduces the problem. The sample should run as-is or with minimal configuration, with no external dependencies.
function protectValue() {
  var ActiveCell = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getActiveSheet().getActiveCell();
  var ActiveRow = ActiveCell.getRow();
  var ActiveSheet = ActiveCell.getActiveSheet();
  var desiredCol = 8;
  var rowUnwanted = 1;
  var sheetName = "Payments";

  if (activeCell.getColumn() == desiredCol && activeCell.getRow() != undesiredRow && activeCell.getSheet().getName() == sheetName && activeCell.getValue() === true) {
    var protectionss = activeSheet.getRange(activeRow, 1, 1, 1, 5);
    var protection = protectionss.protect().setDescription('Locked');
    protection.addEditors(protection.getEditors());
  } else {
    var protections = pagosss.getProtections(SpreadsheetApp.ProtectionType.RANGE);
    for (var i = 0; i < protections.length; i++) {
      var protectionq = protections[i];
      if (protectionq.canEdit() && (protectionq.getRange().getA1Notation() === 'A2:E2')) {
        console.log(protectionq.getRange().getA1Notation());
        protectionq.remove();
      }
    }
  }

Hi Sebastien,

 

I modified your script to get it to work on correct range. You had the A2:E2 hardcoded which means it will only handle that range. I also turned it into an onEdit simple trigger to get the value and row/column numbers of what is being changed

 

Try this:

 

function onEdit(e) {

  var row = e.range.getRow();

  var col = e.range.getColumn();

  var newVal = e.value;

  var activeSheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSheet();

  var desiredCol = 8;

  var rowUnwanted = 1;

  var sheetName = "protect";

  var ui = SpreadsheetApp.getUi();

  ui.alert("New Value: " + newVal);

  if (col == desiredCol && row != rowUnwanted && activeSheet.getName() == sheetName && newVal == "TRUE") {

    var protectionss = activeSheet.getRange(row115);

    var protection = protectionss.protect().setDescription('Locked');

    protection.addEditors(protection.getEditors());

  } else {

    var protections = activeSheet.getProtections(SpreadsheetApp.ProtectionType.RANGE);

    for (var i = 0i < protections.lengthi++) {

      var protectionq = protections[i];

      if (protectionq.canEdit() && (protectionq.getRange().getRow() === row)) {

        protectionq.remove();

}
