Now you can assign users a single permission set group instead of
multiple permission sets. Permission set groups combine selected permission sets to provide
all the permissions that users need for their job. Similarly, remove individual permissions
from a group with the permission muting feature to ensure that users do not get permissions
that are not relevant to their job functions. A new user interface helps you create and manage
permission set groups.
Where: This change applies to Salesforce Classic (not available in all orgs),
Lightning Experience. Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.
Suppose that you have employees in your sales department who work with Sales
Cloud Analytics templates and apps. They also create, edit, and delete surveys and read,
create, edit, and delete accounts. You have three permission sets that contain the permissions
needed: Sales Cloud Einstein, Survey Creator, and a permission set based on the Standard User
Profile. You assign each permission set separately to your users.
You can combine the permission sets into one meaningful permission set group and then
assign the permission set group to the sales employees. In this example, the permission set
group Sales Staff Users contains the combined permissions of all the permission sets that you
added to the group. Salesforce also aggregates and resolves permissions across all permission
sets in the permission set group to ensure that inheritance and dependencies are maintained.
How: From Setup, choose Permission Set Groups to view your
permission set groups and create groups.
On the Permission Set Group detail page, assign the permission set group to users (1). Select
the permission sets to include in the permission set group (2), and choose which permissions,
if appropriate, to mute (3). View the combined permissions in a group (4).
