3. We have create custom profile which has access to custom object.

How do we ensure #2 ? What all option we have.

When we tried to adding #3 in package we get N/A

Please assist.



I would suggest taking a look at this blog post about Profiles and Permission sets in Packages. It explains the issue that I think you are running in to.

One thing that you could do though is create a permission set with the access to the objects you would like the user to have access too and then just assign that permission set after the package is installed.

  • Thanks Zack , One issue with permission set is it cannot be applied to profile but had to be to a user. That would involve lot of manual setup . – Ashish Gaonker Apr 30 '18 at 17:59
  • Also custom object 's fields permissions could not be added in permission set. – Ashish Gaonker Apr 30 '18 at 18:00
  • Okay take a look at that link I provided. I think it should help you. Also you can add Permission sets to multiple users which would still be manual setup but it would be a lot less. for reference (help.salesforce.com/…) – Zack Walton Apr 30 '18 at 18:01
  • When i add custom profile to package its show N/A . Also when this package is installed in another org (testing org), It is not displayed at all to link profile settings to any profile. – Ashish Gaonker May 1 '18 at 6:12
