How to find a particular user A has what access on particular object (Read or Create access) say on Account Via Apex Class.

  • Are you asking how to do this in the Test context or outside of the Test context. – Eric Aug 22 '14 at 13:10
  • @eric, not in test context. that we can do I guess using system.runAs. But I want to know outside of Test Context. – arjun singh Aug 22 '14 at 13:16

I believe this information is what you want:

How to access profile permissions via API

Basically you will need to query the ObjectPermissions sObject since every profile has at least one underlying Permission set

SELECT Id, SObjectType, PermissionsRead, PermissionsCreate
FROM ObjectPermissions
WHERE parentid in (select id from permissionset where
PermissionSet.Profile.Name = 'System Administrator')
  • It will not work out as I can have an user associated with a profile and that profile is having read access to say Account. Now I created a permission set and associated with user which gives Create access to user. So only by profile we wont be able to find out if user as access to an Object(Account) or not. Correct me if I am wrong. – arjun singh Aug 22 '14 at 13:36
  • You do not create a profileset Every profile has a system underlying profile set according to the post. Read the blog entry in the post and you will see. – Eric Aug 22 '14 at 14:00
  • I am not talking about Profile Set. I am talking about "Permission Set" which can be associated at any user. With the "Permission Set" user can have access to Object even if they do not have the access at profile level. – arjun singh Aug 22 '14 at 14:03
  • k, then you will have to cycle through both the profile and permission set to see in total what access they have....This is the only way to currently do it outside of test methods – Eric Aug 22 '14 at 14:06
  • ,Thanks for your support. Let me check if it works. I will update on my findings. – arjun singh Aug 22 '14 at 14:24
