Description

Can I share an opportunity with someone who can't see the associated account?

Resolution

If you are the account owner, above the owner in the role hierarchy, or an administrator, you can share an opportunity with someone who can't see the associated account. When you are the account owner and you share an opportunity with a user or group that can't see the Account, both the Account and the Opportunity are automatically shared with the user or group. The Account will be shared with read access and without access to all the Opportunities on the Account.


You cannot share the opportunity if you are not the account owner. When someone else owns the Account and you try to share an Opportunity with a user or group that can't see the Account, the Opportunity share will fail.
