Enabling custom objects


Custom objects are disabled by default when they are created in your Sandbox instance. Objects can be enabled after you configure and save the settings.

Until a custom object is enabled, it does not display in the Network user interface; profile layouts and data visibility profiles cannot be configured for the object and data cannot be loaded. Ensure that the object configuration is correct and then enable it.

To enable a custom object:

  1. In the Admin console, click Data Model and choose the appropriate data domain.

  2. Select the object to open the configuration page.
  3. Beside the Status field, choose Enabled.
  4. Save your changes.

If you enable a main object, a message displays to remind you that some steps are required so the object is available in the Network UI.

Load data for the enabled custom object.
