How to enable person account in free developer edition? I am not seeing a link to submit or create a case in free developer edition. Any ideas.

Update: Once i click Open a case, it takes me to login screen. once i logged in i got this page and did not see a page to submit a case.

  • The fact that there is a login link & icon at the top right of your screenshot indicates that you are not logged in when this shot was taken. Have you tried navigating to Help & Training while logged in to your Dev Org as Sdry shows below? Log out of all other orgs while doing this to keep the sessions clean. Feb 10, 2014 at 20:21

You have to contact salesforce to enable person accounts.

You should be able to log support cases from a free developer org too. (I can do it on any of mine). Do expect a few days of waiting for free support. If you have access to higher degree's of support in other orgs, it's worth logging the case there, but do mention for what org id you are requesting this to be enabled.

Normal org Community enabled org Contact Support

Then you should get this: Log a Case

  • Are you sure you're logged in ? You do not appear logged in on the screenshot you posted. Once I login I see the case option after clicking "contact support". Feb 10, 2014 at 15:57

  • No I don't know why you have a different interface than I do in my developer org. Help(&training) > Contact Support > Open a Case is there in all my developer orgs, i just checked. Feb 11, 2014 at 8:32

If you are a Partner, you can submit a case through the partner portal and specify the Org Id. If you're not a partner, and have access to an org with access to Support, then you could try that. But I would be a lot more nervous in that case that Support would enable it for the org from which your case originates, rather than your Dev org.

If you're an independent developer on the platform, it's not difficult to join the Salesforce Partners program and get access to the Partner Portal, from which you could log such a case. If you work for a firm that is already a partner, you'll need to inquire internally about getting access to the Partner Portal.


After Summer 22 Release, we can enable person account from the setup and don't need to raise a case with Salesforce Support.

Once enabled this feature cannot be disabled.
