I believe what you are looking for is Super User access: Super User Access Users can be assigned super user access to give them access to data owned by other users belonging to the same role or those below in the hierarchy. For example, a Partner Manager with super user access can see data owned by other users in the Partner Manager role and ...

There are no technical restraints regarding the ten object limit. This is actually mentioned in the documentation somewhere. However, if salesforce.com finds out (however that may be), you would be in violation of your contract and at risk for contractual breach. In theory, this means you'd be forced to pay for the more expensive licenses that you would ...

Update 03-11-16 Two important revisions to communities have occurred since I wrote this answer that should be considered. First is that User Sharing and visibility restrictions on the User Object in an Org are now in place (SU 15 as I recall). This impacts SF Users visibility to other users both inside an Org and within an Org's Customer Community. The 2nd ...

What you're attempting to create are Criteria-Based Sharing Rules. Unfortunately, you can't share records with your partners using criteria-based sharing. Instead, you can only share records based on their Role, not values in the record itself unless you use Apex Managed Sharing. In order to share records with Partners in the Community based on record ...

Each Partner Community user associated with the same account gets a unique Role. When a Partner Community user registers from say, Acme Widgets, that user gets the role Acme Widgets User or something of the sort. Every other user who registers related to the Acme Widgets account also gets that role. Users related to other accounts get their own unique role ...

Below are the answers that I can provide you with: Every Community User will have both a User record and a Contact Record. All Community Users have profiles. Only Partner Users have Roles. Will you need to purchase 10,000 licenses? Not necessarily. You'll need to contact your Account Representative to discuss your options once you determine your needs for ...

When you select a MyDomain in production, Salesforce will automatically select domains for sandboxes based on the Sandbox name. That is, if you select mydomain.my.salesforce.com for Production, then your QA Sandbox should have the domain mydomain--qa.my.salesforce.com. You can find more information about this here. To that end, you are probably better off ...

Partner portal users also have access to Community So, it is better to filter a query by Community license: This will return all users who have a profile with license of community. List <User> communityUsers = [SELECT id, Name FROM User WHERE Profile.UserLicense.Name='Partner Community' OR Profile.UserLicense.Name='Customer Community'];

You can select by Profile name. Check which profile your community users have, and use that in your query. [SELECT Id FROM User WHERE Profile.Name = 'Partner Community']

You are correct, Two-Factor Authentication is not available for users with a Partner Community or Customer Community license. However, there is a no-code workaround: you can implement Two-Factor Authentication for Community Users by creating a custom Login Flow. Login Flows override the default Salesforce login screen, so that your users are taken through ...

Two Factor Authentication is supported for Community Users as pointed out by Rob Cowell. For standard user license type, you my be accustomed to enabling 2FA via the System Permission Two-Factor Authentication for API Logins and Two-Factor Authentication for User Interface Logins. However, you might not see these options for community profiles. Per Set Two-...

The list of functions refer to API calls, not Apex objects. There are plenty of objects that show as CRUD or so in the documentation, but will not work in Apex. Instead, you would need to query an existing record and use that in your test. Objects that are not writable in Apex are typically queryable without the use of @isTest(SeeAllData=true).

Partner Communities licenses have access to the full sharing model, while Customer Communities licenses are limited to sharing groups and sharing sets. What that enables in your scenario, is the ability to make the User object private, and therefore restrict the visibility of partner users and their chatter activity from each other in the same community. ...

A community user can be a portal user. Communities supports several different user types (standard, portal, etc.). The same organization can have a community and a portal running side by side with the same user being able to login to both. It sounds like what you want to know is "How can I tell if I'm in a community or not"? To do that, you can use this ...

Support organization has the ability to change the force.com domain name with the proper validation. You can log a case. Keep in mind any domain name change might take up to 24 hours to be effective and the old domain name won't be valid.

At the time of writing (Mar 2016), I believe Two-factor is available for Community Users, based on what I'm seeing at https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=two_factor_auth_for_sso_and_saml.htm&language=en_US However, your process allows for a far greater degree of customisation, so upvoted accordingly.

When the org wide sharing setting for an object is set to Public Read/ Write, it does not allow reports for the object to be viewed via the partner portal for security reasons.

Install the LMA in your production org. This is necessary because the LMA will create leads for you as your clients install or try out your app. If you put this in your developer org, you may run out of storage space or might even accidentally create a dependency in your app on the LMA, which means your package could no longer be installed by clients.

$A.getCallback needs a function; instead, you're calling a function and returning a null value. It's also not appropriate here, because you're not using a callback at the point you're trying to use $A.getCallback; you want the code in the helper to trigger immediately. Your code should be simply: helper.getLazyResponse(component, node.data.uri, cb); That ...

The program fee is based on a matrix, currently located here. It ranges from $1,000 to $25,000 a year, depending on your "trailblazer score." Higher tiers cost more, but gain more benefits as a result. For example, higher tier partners will get better leads from Salesforce, more exposure in marketing material, etc. The actual process typically takes a few ...

Activating orders is normally done by the organization shipping or provisioning the product ordered. In PRM the Partner normally sells the product and/or delivers additional services but does not ship/provision/deliver the order. So that's why only users with the Salesforce license (thus internal users) can activate an order. There probably is a way around ...
