I'm trying to share a record for a community user programatically. Tried below code in Execute anonymous.

// Create new sharing object for the custom object.
myObject__Share objShare  = new myObject__Share();

// Set the ID of record being shared.
objShare.ParentId = 'a0Vf4000001Hprq'; //recordId;

// Set the ID of user or group being granted access.
objShare.UserOrGroupId = '005f4000000vjvX';

// Set the access level.
objShare.AccessLevel = 'Read';

insert objShare;

But unfortunately it fails with error "Line: 14, Column: 1 System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: FIELD_INTEGRITY_EXCEPTION, field integrity exception: unknown (invalid user or group: 005f4000000vjvX): [unknown]" .

Is it not possible to grant sharing access to community users via manual sharing? I could not find a related documentation on it. Or should I set some configuration settings for this? Appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Note: This could have been achieved using Sharing sets in Community settings, but due to design constraints I'm not able to use it.

Found the related documentation on this.

Roles and Advanced Sharing is not available for Customer Community user.

  • and I managed to get the required design changes to add contact lookup on the object, and do it using Sharing sets in Community settings. Nov 9, 2017 at 0:11

Customer community users cannot participate in advanced sharing. This can be worked around in 2 ways:
1.'with sharing' can be removed from class signature allowing updates/reads from within the class.
2.The ownerId of this record can be changed to point it to the Contact's ->UserId.
So, here objShare.OwnerID = CustomercommunityContact->UserID

  • Hi @Shalini, Thanks for the reply. 1st one is not recommended I believe. 2nd one I tried, and that is the one caused error. Was it successful for you? Probably I guess it's again 'Without sharing'. Nov 9, 2017 at 0:09
  • I tried both options and they worked for different scenarios. What is the error you are getting on the 2nd one?
