I want to allow a user to delete all Jobs(custom object) even ones he doesn't own.Do I need to create a permission set.

Please help!!

Regards, Kunal


Your user needs "Modify All" for that specific custom object. You may either add it to their profile, which would affect all users with that profile, or you can create a permission set, which would apply just to that one user when applied to the user. It really depends on how you want to manage your profiles.

  • If I create a permission set and under Object Settings->under Jobs->I need to click on Modify all checkbox coz I need to give access to particular user only Am I right? – kunal gupta Jan 19 '16 at 0:21
  • Yes, that'd be just fine. Note that some additional permissions will be required too. The system will automatically select them for you. – sfdcfox Jan 19 '16 at 0:23

    typo: Modify All permission on the object v. Modify All Data permission which applies to all objects – cropredy Dec 4 '20 at 18:42
  • @cropredy The label for it used to be Modify All Data at some point, I think. It may have changed since 2016, or maybe I did have a mistake. Either way, I'll update it to the modern terminology. – sfdcfox Dec 4 '20 at 21:33
