Question/Problem Description
Two objects that are related to each other in a 1:1 relationship.
ObjectA is permissioned such that every user has view access to case records.
ObjectB is permissioned so that only the Server API and Manager role have view permissions to the object. In addition to this, view rights to the individual fields in ObjectB are turned off.
In ObjectA a related field was created to pull in data from ObjectB.
When logging in as a non-admin user, that user cannot access ObjectB, which is correct, however, can clearly see ObjectB’s related field data in ObjectA.
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
This is expected behavior.
The 1:1 relationship grants fully access to ObjectB's data thought ObjectA's related field.
It is necessary to remove the view permission from ObjectA's related field as it is now using the view permission set in ObjectA.
