There seems to be a discrepancy in the documentation for Criteria-Based Sharing Rules.

The Guide to Sharing Architecture (and other sources) states that:

"Only Manual Share Records can be created on standard objects".

Yet, the help section: https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=security_sharing_cbs_about.htm&language=en_US

states: "You can create criteria-based sharing rules for accounts, opportunities, cases, contacts, leads, campaigns, and custom objects."

I'm studying for certification and need clarification.

Thanks.

"Only Manual Share Records can be created on standard objects".

The above sentence is definitely incorrect. It must be a documentation error or a (failed) attempt to describe some other limitation or Manual Sharing.

"You can create criteria-based sharing rules for accounts, opportunities, cases, contacts, leads, campaigns, and custom objects."

The above is correct.

Sharing rules or criteria based sharing rules comes under "Force.com Managed sharing".

Manual sharing can be done two ways. - User Managed sharing (via apex code) with standard sharing reason "Manual" (This can be for both custom/standard object) - Apex managed sharing(via apex code with custom sharing reasons) (This is available only for custom object)
