Last Modified Date has changed for all profiles when no changes have been made

Knowledge Article Number 000181766
Description Symptoms:
  1. Almost all of the profiles in the organization indicate that they had been edited on a specific date when all administrators in the instance's company state that they have not made any changes to the profiles.
  2. When the Setup Audit Trail is checked, the only changes that are listed are the changes that have been made to the profile via Field-Level Security.
  3. The Field-Level Security was found to have been modified at the field level on the object, not the profile.
Resolution The above symptoms occur because a field has been created or Field-Level Security has been modified at the field level.

  • Other customizations that cause this change in Modified Date include creating or editing Record Types, Apps, Objects and Tabs and / or enabling Entitlements.
  • The Setup Audit Trail will only show the profiles that have actually had values change or stating that a field has been created and no profiles will display as changed.
