  • I create the Account sharing rule rule type is Based on criteria.
  • Select the users to share with Public Groups to "All Customer Portal Users"
  • Select the level of access for the users *Default Account, Contract and Asset Access" Read/Write.

But still I am do not get the Account records for Customer portal user. I don't want portal user see the contacta, so I give the minimum access to the account.

High volume customer portal users do not have access to the sharing model. They cannot be added to groups or sharing roles. From the documentation:



Set the Organization Wide Defulat setting to "private" for contact.

Specifically; Click Setup and go to Security Controls > Sharing Settings. Click edit above the Organization-Wide Defaults list and make the change.
