Organization-wide default is Public read/write. I want a community user to access all account from community. I tried to give view all access through permission set but getting an error -

. The user license doesn't allow the permission: Read All Accounts

Currently, I am using Customer Community license and Customer Community User profile. What is the workaround for this? Or which license should I use for giving view all access to Account to a community user?

Any help will be appreciated.

  • Make OWD of account as Public Read Only?? Jan 20, 2019 at 9:01
  • @PranayJaiswal Currently it is Public Read/Write and Default External Access is Private. Jan 20, 2019 at 9:04
  • Can you make Default Expernal Access as Public R/O , it would be as as good as giving View All at profile level Jan 20, 2019 at 9:05
  • Okay. That makes sense to me. Let me try. Jan 20, 2019 at 9:10

As, we cannot give View All permission on Account for Community License profile, Making OWD as Public Read Only Serves the same purpose.

The only thing to consider is - Any other community you start/have would also get Account Access as Public Read Only.
