Have you ever wondered?
when you create a record in Salesforce. will that record be visible to every user in the org?
How can I not show this record to everyone?
If you had the above questions and still don't have answers to the above questions.
The answer is Record Level Security. This course helps you understand what is Record Level Security with real-time project examples.
In order to access a record in Salesforce, we need record access.
you might ask, what is Record access. Record access determines which individual records users can view and edit in each object they have access to in their profile.
You control record-level access in four ways. They’re listed in order of increasing access. You use org-wide defaults to lock down your data to the most restrictive level, and then use the other record-level security tools to grant access to selected users, as required.
1) Org-wide defaults
Org-wide defaults specify the baseline level of access that the most restricted user should have.
Use org-wide defaults to lock down your data, and then use the other record-level security to open up the data to users who need it
2) Role hierarchies
Role Hierarchy automatically grants access to records for users above the record owner in the hierarchy.
3) Sharing rules
Sharing rules represent the exceptions to your organization-wide default settings
They allow you to extend record access to users regardless of their place in the role hierarchy.
If you have organization-wide sharing defaults of Public Read Only or Private, you can define rules that give additional users access to records they don’t own.
You can create sharing rules based on the record owner or field values in the record.
4) Manual sharing
Sometimes it’s impossible to define a consistent group of users who need access to a particular set of records.
Record owners can use manual sharing to give read and edit permissions to users who don’t have access any other way.
Manual sharing isn’t automated like organization-wide sharing settings, role hierarchies, or sharing rules.
But it gives record owners the flexibility to share particular records with users that must see them.
