I have a requirement to create multiple(around 100) custom permissions. Can this be done using data loader or workbench? In data loader when we select insert option I don't see custom permissions object. This object is available if we select export in data loader

Custom Permissions are a type of metadata, so you need to use CustomPermission to create them. Probably the easiest way to do this would be a NodeJS/Python/etc script to output all of the files you need, then use Salesforce DX to deploy (though you could also use workbench at this point).

  • I have list of custom permissions to be created in a CSV file. Is there a way we can create these custom permissions via data loader or workbench instead of creating them manually. Thanks. Mar 19, 2021 at 6:16
  • @SudhirBalijepalli No, but you can use a simple node script or something.
