Permission Sets

There are five packaged permission sets that you can assign users who need access to the events app.

If any of your users need access to financial data related to paid registrations or discount codes, they will need a payments license and relate to one of the packaged payments permission sets or a custom permission set. Financial data includes data from invoices, discount codes, transactions, payments methods, and the payment gateway objects.

Blackthorn | Events (Admin)

  • This permission set has access to the Events Administrator tab.
  • This permission set has access to view all, modify all and delete records for any custom objects.

    • Read - Payment Gateways
    • Create/Read/Update - Relationship Settings
    • Create/Read/Update - Data Dictionary Group
    • Create/Read/Update - Data Dictionary Entry

Blackthorn | Events (Community/Platform User)

A permission set assigned to a Community user cannot have any Assigned Apps. This should be used by customers who want to give Community users access to Events.

Blackthorn | Events (Read Only)

  • This permission set will only have read access to the Blackthorn | Events objects.

Custom Permission Sets

Note: If you have custom permission sets you would like to use rather than using the Blackthorn permission sets you can view and add individual items by following the steps below:

  1. Install the latest Blackthorn | Events Salesforce AppExchange package in a sandbox.
  2. Log in to the sandbox org as a System Admin.
  3. Navigate to Setup -> Users -> Permission Sets.
  4. Open up each individual "Blackthorn | Events" permission set.
  5. Review all permissions within each and compare to your custom permission sets you have created. Ensure that all permissions granted by our out-of-the-box standard permission sets are recreated in your permission set.
