list view "visible only to me"

how can a system admin see list view created by user setup as "visible only to me"

Not sure you can do this from a System Admin session.

At least you can request the "Login as  any user" feature.



is there metadata or api for views where i can rely on?

Hi ,


I guess you can copy the code over in IDE and check for the List Views in Metadata which are present in your Salesforce Organization. The XML for List Views is like this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CustomObject xmlns="">
. . .
        <label>All Mileages</label>
        <booleanFilter>1 AND 2</booleanFilter>
            <value>Eric Bristow</value>
        <label>My Mileages</label>

it is not allowed because list view may only visible to a person and group to whom it was assigned when created. you should request to him to include also for allowing your visibility
