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 roles. Remove individual permissions from a group with
the muting permission set feature to ensure that permissions do not exceed user roles.
Permission set groups were introduced as a pilot feature in the Salesforce Spring ‘19 release.
This beta release includes a new user interface for creating and managing permission set
Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in 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.
But with a permission set group, you can combine the permission sets and assign the
group to the sales employees. The new Sales Staff Users permission set group contains the
combined permissions of all the permission sets that you include.
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
to mute (3). View the combined permissions in a group (4).
