Hi everybody, I have a question. My Sandbox has the Spring 20 release updated. But the users without permission to see Metedata and custom setting, are still seeing all the information about that. The Schema Setting is enable for both options. The profile and permission set of the users doesn't have the permission to see or access these information. Only permission they have is "View set up and configuration". So I believe that even with this permission, the user doesn't be able to see the metadata and custom settings, because in they're profile and permission setting, none of the data was assigned in "Custom Metadata Types" and "Custom Setting Definitions". They doesn't have the permission "View All Custom Settings" activated. Is someone facing this problem? Is there something else I have to do to enable this security in my sandbox org? Thanks Rafael More

Hi everyone, I have a question about granting access to newest CMT and CS. I explicitly grant acess to a specific profiles, but as they are many it becomes tedious! Especially when creating a new CMT, should I give access to each profile, one by one, or is there a way to give it to all selected profiles ? like how we do with Field-Level Security for Profile for exemple, we have a table with all profiles where we can easily select during the creation.

Can I please get some clarification, in Spring 20 will setting the "View All Custom Settings" permission allow access to both Custom Settings and Custom Metadata Types OR just the Custom Settings as the name indicates? More

Hi Everyone. Forgive me if I'm doing something daft, but I can't seem to create a new package version in a 2GP Managed Package which contains a Custom Metadata Type record (unprotected). In my simple test I have a package containing a CMT with no custom fields and one test record. I can create the first package version and release it, but if I try to create a second version I get the error "An unexpected error occurred. Please contact Salesforce Support and provide the following error code: 1120583956-814897 (-889499131)". Any ideas? Ta! More
