What is a User Profile ID?
I am adding a lookup field to Cases and want to be able to pick a user rather than a contact. I'd like to limit the selections to System Admins only but when I try to add the filter I don't have a profile name option, just profile ID. I can't figure out what this is or how it works.
Any assistance is appreciated.
first make sure you have created lookup to USER object
Then when you go into filters...
Current User Profile: Name EQUALS System Administrator... See the screen shot.
You will first need to click on Current User Profile: ==== once you click it will automatically show you profile fields.... just select "Name"
Here are my filter selctions:
User: Profile ID
User: Manager: Profile ID
Current User: Profile ID
AND(Discount >= 0.2, $User.ProfileId <> "00eA0000000nJER")
To find the Profile ID, I went to edit a user screen which is where you'd be able to change the profile from one profile to System Adminstrator. Then you right-click ont he screen and "view page source". If you can read this kind of code, you'll find something that says the Profile ID right before the "label" for that ID. If you keyword search the profile you're looking for you'll find it. My page source looked like this:
|Profile=['00eA0000000nJEY','Content Only User','00eA0000000nJEX','Contract Manager','00eA0000000nJEW','Marketing User','00eA0000000nJEU','Read Only','00eA0000000nJEV','Solution Manager','00eA0000000nJET','Standard User','00eA0000000nJER','System Administrator'];|
Hope this helps!
