From Setup, enter Profiles in the Quick Find box, then select Profiles.
In the Profiles list page, do one of the following:
- Click New Profile, then select an existing profile that’s similar to the one you want to create.
- If enhanced profile list views are enabled, click Clone next to a profile that’s similar to the one you want to create.
- Click the name of a profile that’s similar to the one you want to create, then in the profile page, click Clone.
A new profile uses the same user license
as the profile it was cloned from.
Enter a profile name.
