Salesforce to Phase Out Profile Permissions - What You Need to Know!

Salesforce recently made a significant announcement regarding the retirement of permissions on profiles with the arrival of the Spring ’26 release, permissions on profiles will be retired, and permission sets will become the primary method for granting permissions and access. This change has far-reaching implications for administrators and organizations relying on profiles to manage security and access control within their Salesforce org. This article will discuss the implications of this retirement for you as well as how the robust Salesforce app “UtilExchange” can speed up the process of controlling access to profiles, classes, fields, and objects.

The Retirement of Permissions on Profiles

Traditionally, Salesforce has used profiles as a primary means of controlling user access and permissions. However, as Salesforce continues to enhance its platform, they have decided to retire the permissions-based model for profiles. This retirement is aimed at providing more flexibility and granularity in managing security and access control within the organization.

On top of that, Alex struggled with managing change orders effectively. The existing system lacked a streamlined process, resulting in confusion and errors when implementing modifications. Meanwhile, having the documents legally signed by appropriate entities became a strenuous process. It was clear that a comprehensive inspection solution was desperately needed to address these pain points.

What Does This Mean for You?

For organizations heavily relying on profiles to manage permissions, this change may require a significant shift in their approach to security and access control. Moving forward, Salesforce recommends adopting a permission set-based model, which offers enhanced flexibility and granularity in assigning permissions to users.

What will remain on a profile?

  1. One-to-one relationships—login hours/IP ranges

  2. Defaults—record types, apps

  3. Page layout assignment—The future is App Builder/Dynamic Forms so we will not invest in bringing page layout assignments to permission sets.

What will be available only on permission sets after EOL

1. User permissions
2. Object permissions
3. Field permissions
4. Tabs
5. Record types
6. Apps
7. Connected app access
8. Apex classes
9. Visualforce pages
10. Custom permissions

Although profiles will still be around, permissions on them will no longer be available and will instead only be available on permission sets.
