Add Flexibility to Your Permission Set Group with Muted Permissions (Pilot)

Use a muting permission set with a permission set group to mute certain permissions. For instance, you have a subscriber org using a managed package that contains a permission set group. To use the existing permission set group, the subscriber org can disable specific permissions with a muting permission set. Or, perhaps you have a permission set group that contains several permission sets managed by different departments. Use a muting permission set to disable specific permissions based on your needs.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.



We provide this feature to selected customers through a pilot program that requires agreement to specific terms and conditions. To be nominated to participate in the program, contact your Success Manager or log a case in Because pilot programs are subject to change, we can’t guarantee acceptance. This pilot feature isn’t generally available, as referenced in this document or in press releases or public statements. We can’t guarantee general availability within any particular time frame or at all. Make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available features.

Who: If you’re an ISV partner, to fully benefit from the pilot, enlist subscriber customers to participate. Using permission set groups along with a subscriber org lets you move through a full cycle on a branched version of a managed package. If you participate in the pilot without a subscriber org, the feature is limited to Developer edition orgs and your test environment.

Why: You have a permission set group called Sales Staff Users that contains three permission sets. One set contains a delete permission that you no longer want all group members to have. However, another permission set group called Managers also references this permission set.Conceptual diagram of a muting permission set being added to an existing permission set group.Instead of creating another permission set, use a muting permission set. The muting permission set contains the delete permission that you want to disable. When you add the muting permission set to the Sales Staff Users group, those members no longer have the delete permission, but the Managers members do. You can add only one muting permission set to a permission set group.Conceptual diagram of a permission set group with a muted permission.
