Impact of Merging 2 or more profiles



we are planning to merge 2 or more profiles in our organization ,some permissions are enabled on only some profiles and some or not.

Could you please let me know the impact of merging profiles and what all are the things we need to consider or compare before hand.

Like Page layouts,FLS, Custom App settings,Tab settings,Record type settings,Admin permissions,general user premissions,Desktop integration clients,Login hours, Login IP ranges,Enabled Apex classes and VF pages.


Do we need to consider anything else other than the specified settings.


Thanks in advance.


Hi Taruni,


Looks like you have listed out most of the major things to be checked for.
Merging profiles would result in extending access if any was not part of the other profile.
Double check the Check Boxes under Administrative Permissions of the profiles and also see the Edit - Delete permissions of all the Objects just to confirm.
