great article Amit bhai. I was hoping to use the integration license for deployment. However, only permissions allowed for this profile are
– API Enabled
– Api Only User
– Chatter Internal User
And for deployment we need “Modify All Data” . Tried creating a permission set and assigning to this user, got this error message – Can’t assign permission set Modify All Test to user Integration User. The user license doesn’t allow the permission
So it seems the license is good for basic integration but not for deployment. I am hoping to be proved wrong.
Thanks for good point bhai
Is Salesforce Integration License for Standard Object only ? I am not able to find custom objects in PSL when assigned with same License only standard objects are available.
