User keeps getting an error of insufficient privileges when trying to upload a file as an attachment to the Product standard record. How can I grant access to upload the attachment?

  • have you checked that the user(S) profiles have access to the object? if yes, what about fls? – glls Nov 17 '17 at 17:02
  • can you give a brief description of which object it is, what profile is of the user who is trying to upload attachment. Is he uploading via API or via UI? – Pranay Jaiswal Nov 17 '17 at 17:03
  • I've edited the question with the object's name. @glls, the users have "read" access. My guess is that they need "edit" access as well? – Renato Oliveira Nov 17 '17 at 17:08

  • Can't due to license limitation. But if you know it is the answer, please answer this question so I can mark it as solved! :) – Renato Oliveira Nov 17 '17 at 17:21

The Attachment object inherits its security from the parent object - so if your user only has Read access to the Product object or only Read access to the specific Product record, you will receive this error.
