View the Parent Object of a Field in Setup Search Results (Beta)
The Advanced Setup Search results page now includes an Object column, which shows the parent object of any relevant item, such as custom fields, workflow rules and tasks, approval processes. This makes it easy for you to see the context of any item that has a parent object.
Delegated Administrators Can Assign Permission Sets
Now you can specify permission sets that delegated administrators can assign to users in specified roles and all subordinate roles. This way, you can delegate permission set assignment tasks while maintaining strict control over which permission sets delegated administrators can assign.
Manage Access to Custom Processes and Apps (Generally Available)
When creating custom processes and apps, developers can now use custom permissions to control which features users can access at a granular level. Then, administrators can assign custom permissions in permission sets and profiles, making it easy to specify which users can access specific features.
Reference Custom Permission Access with the $Permission Global Variable
Use the $Permission global variable in formulas and validations to reference information about the current user’s access to any of your organization’s custom permissions. For example, you can use the $Permission global variable in a validation rule that ensures that only users with the “Change Austin Accounts” custom permission can make changes to accounts that have a billing city of Austin.
Interact with More Publisher Actions Programmatically
The publisher.selectAction, publisher.setActionInputValues, and publisher.invokeAction events in the publisher.js API now support the Post and Social Post actions, so you can create custom console components that interact with these actions.
Enable External HTTPS for Domains
Enabling External HTTPS on a domain allows Salesforce to use the domain in secure references to the sites that are associated with that domain, such as in URLs that appear within an email message from a Salesforce Community. This feature is useful for sites that require authentication, such as community sites, portal sites, or any type of site where confidentiality, protection from eavesdropping, or protection against spoofing are important.
