I have a community and I am developing a lightning component page to display a custom object record Grant__c in this community.

The custom object Grant__c is in Private sharing mode so only owners can see records, and I have added a sharing set in the community settings, to allow a user to view/edit all of it's parents account Grant__c records.

The problem happens when I use in my components inside the community, I can view and and edit the Grant__c record that I own, but cannot view or edit the Grant__c record that I do not own. I get this error on the recordUpdated event:

Error: We couldn't find the record you're trying to access. It may have been deleted by another user, or there may have been a system error. Ask your administrator for help.

This is the relevant code:


<aura:component implements="force:appHostable,forceCommunity:availableForAllPageTypes">

    <aura:attribute name="fields" type="String[]" description="API field names of the grant" default="Id,Name,Website__c" />
    <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="String" description="Id of the current record" />
    <aura:attribute name="recordError" type="String" description="An error message bound to force:recordData"/>
    <aura:attribute name="record" type="YH_Grant__c" description="data of this grant" />

    <force:recordData aura:id="recordEditor"



recordUpdated: function(component, event, helper) {

    var changeType = event.getParams().changeType;

    if(changeType === "LOADED") {
    else if(changeType === "ERROR") {
        // here I get this error 
        console.log('Error: ' + component.get("v.recordError"));

This is the sharing set definition:

enter image description here


Why don't I see records that I do not own, although my parent account and their parent account are the same?


Try Setting the access mapping to:

User:Contact.Account = Grant:Account

May be this can help.
