What is the error and have you checked your logs for more details on it?


When I clicked on 'submit' button, after entering the Project name & Key, I got error named 'Permission Violation'. Please Find attached screen shot for the same and kindly let me know the reason & solution for this issue.

The permission scheme for this project is not set up to allow your account any browse rights. Check the default permissions


Till today, I have created projects like this only, at that time I have not faced any such problem. Please assist me to create new project.

Again, check the permission scheme.

Hey Charmi,

It seems someone changed the Default Permission scheme on your instance and you do not have the Browse Projects permission anymore on it.

You are creating the projects successfully, BUT you do not have permission to access the project you just created.

You just need to change the Default Permission scheme and you should be good for your next projects and the ones you already created.

I'm not sure if you are cloning any existing project.

If yes and that project does not have permission for your role then this error may occur.
