Permission sets not working

Hi All,


This is with respect to accessing opportunities on salesforce.

The "Opportunity" default access is private.

I have a profile non-sales which has only read access to opportunities as "CRUD" settings.

Now all opps are shared via "sharing settings" with above mentioned profile().

The sharing setting rule gives then (Read/Write) access.

But this is where my problem arises.

I want to give the non-sales users "edit" access,but only for certain specific fields.

However, if i make the sharing rule "Read Only" then they are not able to edit any field at all, while use of permission sets

makes no difference at all.


Kindly advice.


Many Thanks in advance.






Hello Anidev,


Setup field level security in non-sales profile or in a permission set. refer:


Hi Vinita,


Thanks for the reply.

However i have already tried this and failed.

FLS doesnot work on "Opportunity Name", "Close Date" , "Stage" fields atleast, to the best of my knowledge,

hence unable to use same.

Same is the case in "Permission Sets" as well.

Pray request an auxillary.


Thanks in advance.
