Enabling Access for New Users

The Force.com platform provides a flexible, layered data sharing design that allows to expose different data sets to different sets of users. This way, users can do their job without seeing data they do not need to see, which helps to minimize the risk of abuse and loss of data.

Permissions and permission sets allow accessing objects and object fields. That is, they control which data users can see and edit.

JustOn provides permission sets for the included custom objects and fields, Visualforce pages and Apex classes. These permission sets are shipped with the JustOn package. They are upgraded as new objects or fields, Visualforce pages etc. are added with new JustOn releases.

JustOn ships with the following default permission sets:

Permission Set Description
JustOn Full Access Read/write access to JustOn objects, irrespective of any role-based restrictions.
Can be used only in combination with the Read/Write permission set.
JustOn Read Only Read-only access to JustOn objects.
JustOn Read/Write Read/write access to JustOn objects.
Required for creating/modifying as well as emailing/exporting records.
JustOn Payment Guest Specific permission set for using payment service integrations.

As an org administrator, you can add or remove the permission set assignments for your users as necessary. Be aware that any user who is supposed to do more than just view certain data requires Write access to the corresponding objects and fields. This includes, in particular, the permissions to (re)distribute invoices, booking data or other statements.

Info

JustOn recommends not to alter the Salesforce default access setting Public Read/Write for the Account object. If your business requires to do so, however, make sure to assign Write access to the users or profiles that create or update invoices.

Note

Due to a Salesforce defect, the permission sets shipped with JustOn are not able to allow access to the Balance object and its fields.

Hence, enabling access to JustOn for new users usually involves the following tasks:

  1. Create a new permission set that enables access to the Balance object, its fields and (as of JustOn 2.61) the Balance tab.

    1. Clone an existing permission set, for example, JustOn Read/Write, or create a new one as described in Create Permission Sets in the Salesforce Help.
    2. In the new permission set, click Object Settings > Balances > Edit.
    3. Specify the tab settings, the object permissions and the field's access level.

      Object Setting Recommended Permissions
      Tab Settings Available
      Visible
      Object Permissions Read
      Create
      Edit
      Delete
      View All
      Modify All
      Field Permissions Edit access for all fields
    4. Click Save.

  2. Add or remove permission set assignments for your users as necessary.

    For details, see Assign Permission Sets to a Single User in the Salesforce Help.
