We have a new sandbox and are logging in as a System Admin user. The Org Wide Default sharing settings on Accounts (and most objects) is Public Read Write. System Admin permissions on Account are View All. However, when I run a simple query such as
Select Id, Name from Account
I get no results. I thought perhaps no data was imported, so I decided to create my own via the UI. When I started typing in names for the Accounts - the Account names from production started showing up! When I select one, it fills all the information for the account. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on here?
Update: This is a developer sandbox (which I didn't know), so it is not supposed to have data. I guess the question becomes how we see the data that comes up as we input Account names?
I ran the query using the Salesforce inspector.
