Is a namespace needed for an unmanaged package?

Hi all,

I could not find documentations about if an unmanaged package needs a namespace or a namespace is mandatory for it. I only know that managed packages need a namespace.
But the unmanaged ones?.

Hi Laura,


It is mandatory to have Namespace to create the managed package only and not for the unmanaged package.You should be able to create unmanaged package as mentioned here (http://mysalesforcestuff.blogspot.com/2016/02/whats-in-namespace-managed-and.html).

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,

Hi Luura, 

Only the managed package requires the Namespace and not for the unmanaged one.
