Permission Set Vs Profiles:

  • Permissions and access settings are specified in user profiles and permission sets.
  • Every user is assigned only one profile, but can also have multiple permission sets.
  • Example: you can create a permission set that gives read access to a custom object and assign it to a large group of users, and create another permission set that gives edit access to the object and assign it to only a few users. You can assign these permission sets to various types of users, regardless of their profiles.
