I want to restrict edit access of community/partner portal users from internal user.

I have disabled "Manage users" permission and its dependant permissions from internal user's profile, but still I am able to edit the community/ partner user.

Do we have any other permission or its salesforce standard feature.

  • Is the user the owner of the Contact record for the community/partner portal users?

You should try removing the 'Manage External Users' permission from the profile for this. Those users without it should not be able to edit a community or partner user without it.

Also check that the profile does not have 'Modify All Data' enabled.

Salesforce help

  • Yes I have already removed 'Manage External Users' permission from the profile also disabled 'Modify All Data' permission still I am able to edit a user for community and portal users.
