Working through some training exercises and trying to track history on some fields in the Account object.

I'm getting an Insufficient Privileges error. Which permission do I need to be able to do this?

Setup->Object Manager->Account>Fields & Relationships


You need Customize Application permission to be able to set field history tracking.

  • Thanks @Jayant. Also it seems that with permission sets, you need to clone an existing one , rather than edit an old one. For this I also need to get into Object permissions and allow editing on the object and fields. – jbemt48 Mar 20 '19 at 15:52

    Typically a system administrator profile will have all these necessary permissions as all these activities are part of an admin's job. – Jayant Das Mar 20 '19 at 15:53
