You are here licenses in a Salesforce org


It seems it is possible add users into a 'normal' org (i.e. a standard EE or UE org) to allow large numbers of users cheaper access to API and OAuth based authentication.

The documentation at remarks "Access to data is determined by organization-wide sharing defaults."

So, my question is:

If the OWD is set to Private and a light user creates and manage their own records - can those records also be shared to internal Full License users for use in reporting, standard page layouts and Visualforce?

I am positive that this can be achieved .

We will have to create appropriate sharing rules .

Also if we want data access for Visualforce page if we write an extension class using "without sharing" keyword we will run in a system context mode and we can perform operation ignoring sharing permissions .

In short if OWD Private sharing rules can be written both programatically and manually .

I don't believe you can use licenses against a org. I have asked this question of a couple of guys within Salesforce and have always been met with a no. It would be really interesting if you could as it would solve a few problems for me.

But currently I still think it is a no and the docs are slightly misleading.

Confirmed by SF. You can add licenses to your organisation, however they do not add anything to your allowed limits (API and data storage).
