Security Zen

SF Actions

Once you have made selections within Configure, SF Actions enable retrieving and deploying security to the currently connected environment.


Retrieves security of the configured selections from the currently connected environment.

Important!  Only the intersection of selected security files and selected entities will be retrieved.  Be cautious in making selections as there may be issues with retrieving very large amounts of data

As part of the Retrieve process, you will be prompted to Load System Permissions.  Selecting Yes will load System Permissions associated with the selected Profiles and Permission Sets.

Note that only System Permissions that are true for at least one of the retrieved Profiles or Permission Sets are retrieved.  If  you want to retrieve all System Permissions, you should retrieve an Admin profile that contains all System Permissions.


Deploys security from the workspace to the currently conencted environment.

* Deploy is only available to Security Zen Masters.

What is the difference between blank and false in cells?

Both blank and false means security is not granted.  However, in some areas the lack of a permission is not stored in Salesforce and therefore a particular security setting may show up as blank.

Important!   Blank cells are NOT deployed during a deploy command.

Deploying a blank cell means the security for that cell will NOT be modified in the deployed environment.

If you wish to remove security for a cell, the cell must be set to the appropriate setting for that entity type to remove security in the deployed environment.
