I'm getting the following error when deploying profile Metadata:

"You may not modify the permission Run Macros on Multiple Records while editing a Standard Profile"

I know I need to remove a userPermissions element from the XML file, but which one corresponds to "Run Macros on Multiple Records".

I'm aware that Metadata Equivalent of the System Permission “Connect Org to Customer 360 Data Manager” is a very similar question. This is the same problem, but for a different permission name.


It turns out it was the BulkMacrosAllowed user permission.

I removed the following from my Admin.profile-meta.xml file.


It does raise the question of how we are supposed to do these name to label translations, but that is another question... How can I map between a permission name in the API and the label shown in the UI?
