Dev Hub: New Limited Access License

Looking to use Dev Hub in your production or business org but don’t have a Salesforce user license? Look no further. The Salesforce Limited Access - Free license lets developers access Dev Hub to create and manage scratch orgs.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce app in Developer, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

How: Contact your Salesforce account representative to request the Free Limited Access License. Salesforce administrators can upgrade a Salesforce Limited Access - Free license to a standard Salesforce license at any time.

To give full access to the Dev Hub org, create a permission set that contains these permissions. For more information, see Add Salesforce DX Users in the Salesforce DX Setup Guide.
