Permission sets can replace the need for profiles.

  • True
  • False ✅

Correct Answers

False ✅


The biggest difference between Profiles and Permission Sets – as you know for sure – is that each user has to have one profile and can have one or more permission sets. The rights get extend with every new privilege, you cannot remove it if some other profile/perm set allows it.
The problem was, that at some instances there were a lot of permission sets and admins weren’t really sure, which they should assign to users and forget some of them – Permission Set Groups to their rescue. And when Salesforce was at it they also created a way we can mute certain permissions to maybe simplify our permission sets model.
The muting part catch my attention, so I did some testing to see, what I need to change when implementing it.
