Explain how to determine what security permissions are required in order to complete an action in Salesforce.com.
Security at all applicable levels is required in order to complete an action.
For example, in order to create a lead record, a user must authenticate (organization security) and must have create access to the lead object (object security). Field-level security will then determine which fields the user can view and modify.
All actions require an active session (organization security allowed), and:
- Create a record: Create on Object, Edit on Field
- View a record: Read on Object, Read on Record, Read on Field
- Edit a record: Edit on Object, Read/Write on Record, Edit on Field
- Delete a record: Delete on Object, Full Access on Record
