My API user makes the following query in Salesforce via the Standard REST API. They have Read / Edit privileges on the Contact__c field and Modify All on the Channel__c object. They do not have access to the Contact object

SELECT Id, Contact__c FROM Channel__c LIMIT 1

They get this error:

INVALID_FIELD: SELECT Id, Contact__c FROM Channel__c ^ ERROR at Row:1:Column:12 No such column 'Contact__c' on entity 'Channel__c'. If you are attempting to use a custom field, be sure to append the '__c' after the custom field name. Please reference your WSDL or the describe call for the appropriate names.

Any ideas why?

I believe it is a key: They do not have access to the Contact object

The user will require at least 'Read' access to the object in which the lookup field is referencing to see the lookup field.

  • Yep - that's why i bolded that part. It makes sense, but was hoping there was something else i could do to get around the issue Sep 10, 2022 at 21:11
