I am in a developer sandbox within Salesforce, and am trying to follow the "Build the Account Map Display" Trailhead.

When I log into the sandbox and access "Static Resources", there is no "New" button. I have checked that Lightning Experience is active and that the Organization Edition is Developer Edition.

Please advise.

I finally found the New button, it is tiny and in the middle of the table header.

Check that your profile has these System Permissions listed here to be able to Edit/ Create static resources.

  • Where do I check the user permissions?

  • Setup-> Profiles ->whatever profile is assigned to your user/ the user that needs access On the profile look at System Permissions

  • Another way is Setup -> <your user's full name in the search bar on left side> and click the profile on your user

  • The user has Customize Applications permission, being a System Administrator, yet I do not see the New Static Resource link.
