Below is the answer and explanation for the question in the Salesforce Exams.

  • The record owner
  • The record owner’s manager
  • The record owner’s manager’s manager
  • The system administrator
  • All of the above ✅
  • None of the above

Correct Answers

All of the above ✅


Sometimes, granting access to one record includes access to all its associated records. For example, if you grant another user access to an account, the user automatically has access to all the opportunities and cases associated with that account.
To grant access to a record, you must be one of the users above.
If a user transfers ownership of a record, Salesforce deletes any manual shares created by the original record owner, which can cause users to lose access. When account ownership is transferred, manual shares created by the original account owner on child records, such as opportunities and cases, are also deleted.
When the parent account for a contact associated with a portal or community user changes, manual shares for custom object records that were shared with the portal or community user are deleted.
