I have a picklist in the Content Version object and I have a set of profiles. The values of the picklist must be restricted to each profile that is the values seen by one profile should not be seen by the other profiles.

This can be done using record types but I did not find any documentation on record types for Content Version. Can we create record types for Content Version document?

If not, any way to do this other than validation? No validation because the picklist values will visible to all the profiles

  • Again, it's the picklist values and not the picklist field – User2529 Jan 21 '16 at 8:16

From spring 15 salesforce files support record types:


You can use salesforce files for creating record types. The record types defined insided the salesforce files are being used by the content version, and you can do your configuration with these record types.
