How to identify the reason for users to gain access to Records that they are not supposed to in a private sharing model?
To identify the reason for the Record access, it is enough for the Admin to click on the Sharing button on the record page. If the button is not available, access the page using the URLs shown below:
- For Accounts records -
- For Custom Object records -
After accessing the Sharing page, the Admin can click on the Expand List button and look for the user which should not have access to the record.
Clicking on Why next to the User Name, the reason for access is given.
The reasons are detailed in the Salesforce article below.
