The functionality that I have to implement is quite simple. Partner Community User creates an order, adds product to the order and activates the order. I am able to achieve the first two without any problem, but activating a Order from community seems to be an issue.
When I read the docs found out that at the profile level we would need to check the Activate Orders User Permission, but this permission is not available for the community license profile. So I created a permission set with none as the user license, checked the Activate Orders permission and tried to assign it to the community user but it errored out.
So I am bascially stuck helplessly trying to figure out how to activate an order from a community user? If this is not possible then what was Salesforce's rationale in providing the functionality to create / edit orders and add products to it, but not allowing the community user to activate it?
