What is (OWD) in Salesforce? Permission sets | Sharing rule | Manual sharing!
Hello, Friends, I am very happy to tell you all with this useful information. This post is only for Beginners. And for the experienced persons, this post helps them to refresh the things which they already know.
Organization-Wide Defaults, or OWD’s, are the baseline security for your Salesforce instance. Owd’s are used to restrict the access. You can grant access through these below three sharing setting (OWD Setting).
These are the different options available to define sharing settings [OWD] of an object.
|Private||The role hierarchy is observed and people cannot view their peer records. In the figure above, Rep1 cannot see the data for Rep2 in the object that has private settings.|
|Public Read Only||This is useful if we have master data that the people refer to, for example, the books info in the library. They can be kept public read-only. In this case, everyone across the hierarchy can see the data.|
|Public Read / write||This option does not obey any role hierarchy and anyone can edit/ modify or even delete the objects depending on their profile permissions.|
Permission sets in Salesforce:
A new addition to the profile-based permission is the permission sets. A user can have only one profile at a time with a static set of permission. With the new permission sets, we can create a separate set of permissions for the uses.
For example: to give access to an object, instead of modifying the profile we can create a permission set and assign it to the user.
Sharing rule in Salesforce:
Sharing rules are the special sets of privileges set by the administrator to automatically grant record access to certain users or the group of users. There is a limit of 100 owner-based sharing rules.
Sharing rules can allow the records for the user, which are restricted by the roles. However, if the object is not visible to the user profile, the records cannot be made visible by sharing rules.

Manual sharing in Salesforce:
The last option in sharing is the manual sharing option given to the individual users with full access to a record. It is used if the organization-wide defaults access for the object is set to Private. This is generally done by a record owner, for a single record.
Only the record owner and users above the owner in the role hierarchy are granted full access to the record. It is not possible to grant other users full access.
Users with the Modify All object-level permission for the given object or the Modify All Data permission can also manually share a record.
User-managed sharing is removed when the record owner changes or when the access granted in the sharing does not grant additional access beyond the object’s organization-wide sharing
default access level.
These below four things you will do to design security model for your organization.
|1||First, consider the user who has least possible visibility of the objects. Set up the organization-wide defaults based on them.|
|2||Then, prepare the matrix for the users who have access to other objects. Prepare their profiles and permission sets based on that.|
|3||Finally, set up the role hierarchies to enable mutual sharing of the objects.|
|4||The remaining odd records can be shared using sharing rules.|
