Error Uploading File in Feed

If your user gets an error when trying to upload a File in their Feed:

A user must have Read and Edit access to the Contact object as well as the System Permission “API Enabled" in order to upload files.


  1. Profile assigned to the user to confirm the right level of access.
  2. Check the Organization-Wide Default Sharing Settings for the Account and Contact objects to ensure that these objects are not set to a Private or Public Read-Only model.  Those restrictions will prevent the community user from having edit access to their related Contact record.
