My user is with System Administrator profile in the Org

I am trying to add a field to a custom object but getting Insufficient Privileges error. Like this:

enter image description here

System Administrator has Administrative Permission to Customise Application enabled.

System Administrator has all permission on that particular custom object. See below:

enter image description here

What I am missing here?

  • Check the system administrator profile, there is a setting for “create, edit and delete custom fields” and I think you may also need “customise application”. developer.salesforce.com/forums/?id=906F0000000kB9BIAU

  • I am not able to find create, edit and delete custom fields in the System Administrator profile. System Administrator has Customise Application permission. System Administrator has all permission on that particular custom object Jul 2 '19 at 8:05

I switched to Salesforce Classic.

Now I am able to create the field in the object.

Although it is strange as the object is the same, the user is the same and profile on the user is the same as in Lightning Experience.
