    I've repeatedly stumbled upon the issue that changes to permission sets in the IDE are not correctly deployed to the org.


    I have some custom objects A, B and C with a couple of custom fields each.

    Now I add "Permission Sets" to my working meta data and (force-)pull them from the org.

    Next I modify some object settings for the objects in the PS editor:

    • Enable "View all" for A, set all fields to "Read access"
    • Enable "Modify All" for B, set all fields to "Edit Access"
    • Enable "Read, Create, Edit" for C and set some fields to Read Access, some to Edit.

    After that I "apply" the changes.

    In the end the configuration for the deployed PS is never as configured in the IDE.

    • Sometimes none of the mentioned field level settings are deployed for neither A, B or C; sometimes just for one of the objects
    • Previously existing permissions in the set are being removed during deployment (e.g. for another object; as said, I force-pulled everything from the org before modifying the PS
    • Sometimes it seems nothing is set at all

    TL;DR: Modifying a PS via the IDE is not reliable, even though the idea and the interface is very good.

    It would be great if you could fix that behaviour...

    Edit: I'm on the latest Windows release.

      Hello Chris!

      I hope you are doing well!

      I kindly ask you to reproduce this one more time and please send us a bug report with attached log files directly from the IDE - you can find this functionality in the menu Help -> Report a Bug, please specify your email and enable the 'Attach Log File' checkbox.

      This way we would receive your TWS log files which could help us to find a reason for the problem.

      Thank you,


      TWS Team
