Hey ALL, when OWD are set to private but a user is assigned with Public Read,write,edit permissions then inthis case what kind of permission does user will have ? Can profiles override OWD settings ? or can OWD settings override Profiles ?

Hi Naveena,


OWD will override the profile permissions.If you set the OWD to private then the user will not be able to access any records even if they have all the permissions on profile level.

If you create the sharing settings on the Object level then you will be able to access the records even if the OWD is set to Private.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as best answer so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,
