  • Metadata Framework (MDF)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. MDF permissions have been granted to user from Miscellaneous Permissions Category in Manage Permission Roles
  2. Go to View User Permission, check corresponding user permissions
  3. MDF permissions are not in the list.


In Configure Object Definition for the MDF object, Secured has been set to YES, however the Permission Category has been set with blank.

Please refer to below screenshot:


Please further set proper Permission Category for the MDF object, then the corresponding Permissions can be displayed in the list result from View User Permission.
