A client wants to explicitly share private data with Partner Community users. For example, their Salesforce administrator needs to share Account A with Partner User A, but Partner User B should not have access.

According to this answer, a Customer Community Plus license gains access to data just like a regular Salesforce user license. So, does a Partner Community license have the same access?

If so, the administrator should be able share (using the "Sharing" button) a specific record with specific groups, roles, or a specific Partner Community user, right?

  • @avjit Are you sure that a custom component (Apex) - whatever that is - will work? For example, customer community licenses can never see Opportunities. How would you expose those? Apr 15, 2018 at 5:08
