Enforcing CRUD/FLS (cxs-72 + cxs-104)

Changes

In release 22 we are extending our implementation of CRUD/FLS enforcement, from the original implementation in release 18. For context about the changes we made with release 18, make sure to read this article.

In addition to optionally enforcing CRUD/FLS on the creation and updating of records, we are also adding it to the viewing of records. This addition will be configurable and thus optional, for the time being. We plan to fully enforce CRUD/FLS (non-optional) from release 24 onwards.

We highly recommend to start testing with CRUD/FLS enforcement from release 22 onwards. The custom setting will allow you to test on a per profile or per user basis. Whilst testing, you may run into the following issues:
Fields that were visible to a user on a page, may no longer be visible to them. If this is not desired, you can fix the FLS of that field to fix this.
When opening a page the user may receive an error message that the object is not accessible. Changing the permissions on the affected object will fix this.
In rare cases the page could fully crash for the user. This one is the most difficult to troubleshoot. When you are not sure which field/object is causing this issue, reach out to Support. They can check the debug logs to verify the culprit.
Again: these issues will only arise for users where CRUD/FLS has been enabled for, through the custom settings provided.

 

Configuration instructions

To enable CRUD/FLS go to Salesforce setup > custom settings > click on manage next to “CRUD and FLS settings”

On this page you can choose to enable CRUD/FLS enforcement for all users, in the viewing of records, the updating/creating of records or both.

Approach recommendation

CRUD/FLS enforcement is an important step towards an even more secure platform. We highly recommend starting now (if you haven’t already) and making sure your environment is fully compliant. From release 24 onwards this will no longer be optional. Release 22 provides some useful tooling to test this, we recommend the following approach:

1. Enable CRUD/FLS fully on your sandbox, and take care of low hanging fruit. There may be some obvious errors that you can easily find and fix as per the above description.You can also elect to verify CRUD/FLS without enabling enforcement. However we believe the ‘trial and error’ approach will be quicker and less error-prone.

2. Enable CRUD/FLS on production, for a single user per profile. Find a representative for each profile that understands the impact. They will let you know if they run into any issues (e.g. they can’t save a form, they do not see a field they did before etc).

3. Fully enable CRUD/FLS for all users in due time before release 24 becomes available. If you do run into issues you didn’t catch in the previous two steps, you still have the option to disable the enforcement.

4. Take release 24, where you will have full CRUD/FLS enforcement.
