Sites - Customer Portal Manager profile and Product object

Hi All, As a guest user, the profile lets user to read most of the objects including Products. But, when user is authenticated, the authenticated user will be assigned "Customer Portal Manager" profile. This profile DO NOT expose with many other standard objects also PRODUCT object. If we are building e-commerce website, how we can work around this?

You are correct. I just checked all existing customer portal licenses and none of them have access to products and pricebooks. Only portal licenses that has this level access is the Gold PRM portal license.


The reason sites has this level access is to support product catalog, search and web2any obecjt flows


I agree that we need to address this flow in customer portal. Until then your only workaround is to use custom objects rather than using the standard products object.
