Did anybody have experience with enabling Partner Community users with create/edit access for Product objects. I know you can't assign these permissions using the Partner Community Profile, but are there any good workarounds?


I'm assuming you mean Product records as I know of no way for someone to create a new sObject from a Community.

If you did mean records, because of the permissions required, the only way one could do this would be to create a "mirror" object and use triggers to pass record inserts and updates back and forth between the Partner Community and your Org. This would be something to do with great caution.

  • i meant to ask create/edit Object Permissions for Products to be completely correct in SFDC exact terminology. And thank you for the answer I was thinking about going that way. – zokito Apr 22 '15 at 15:42
  • Sharing restrictions would apply to editing Products in a Partner Community. The object simply isn't directly available to Partners. Access to OLI through Opp is as close as a Partner is going to get. – crmprogdev Apr 22 '15 at 15:50
  • But the proxy object connecting the Create/Edit operations Partner does back and forth to Product would work in the system mode through triggers, as stated in the answer right? – zokito Apr 22 '15 at 15:55
  • That's correct. :) – crmprogdev Apr 22 '15 at 16:08
