What is the Difference between a PROFILE and a Permission Set in Salesforce
– A User can have only ONE Profile.
-A profile is generally used to define the permissions and access levels for a certain group of users. Every user can have only one profile.Permission Sets:
– A Permission set is a subset of permissions which can be applied to a group of users who are spread across multiple profiles. Permission sets eliminate the need to create multiple profiles to address each and every minor modification.
-A permission set is generally used to define permissions and access levels for individual users. A common use case is to define additional access for some users belonging to the same profile without creating a new profile.
– Every user can have one or more permission sets.
