Custom meta Data and Custom setting field is not queryable on the community site

edited December 3, 2019 in Questions
Hi Team,

There are 2 critical updates in salesforce 'Require Customize Application permission for direct read access to custom metadata types.' and 'Require Customize Application permission for direct read access to custom settings.' When i activated these updates, on the community site, skuid page is not able to access the fields of Custom meta data and custom setting fields. We checked that lightning component can access the fields on the community but skuid don't support to query the fields of custom meta data and custom settings.

After activating, Model contains data with Id but all other fields is not accessibile. Just like 'Name',Label,MasterLabel, Custom field is not accessible.

Please let me know what i need to do additionallly for accessing the fields of custom metadata and custom settings on the community site.This is urgent.
Please find the below screenshot of Critical Update.

    Hi Geeta Garg, thank you for the details and screenshots. Please double check the following:
    • Upgrade to the latest 12.2.x or 11.2.x Skuid patch (please see reminder below)
    • Make sure all of the Skuid users are assigned a Skuid Page Viewer/Builder permission set.
    As a reminder, Salesforce does NOT allow reverting back to prior versions of managed packages. Skuid always recommends installing new versions in a non-business critical sandbox environment to test all mission critical functionality before installing into a production environment. We also recommend that you update out of date themes after you upgraded.

    Please see more information below, these are from in our Release Notes of Skuid 12.2.9 and Millau 11.2.28 that you can also find here:

    CORE-2558 - Affects v1 and v2

    Two critical Salesforce updates may impact end users
    Salesforce is restricting access to Apex classes with @AuraEnabledmethods used by Aura and Lightning Web Components for guest, portal, and authenticated users based on User profile permissions.

    This critical update affects the Skuid Page and Skuid Page Assignment components used in the Lightning App Builder. 

    These critical updates will be applied on the auto-activation date listed on Critical Updates page in Salesforce’s Setup.

    End users may not be able to view pages or those parts of pages where the Skuid Page or Skuid Page Assignment components are used in a Lightning page.

    We have updated the permission sets used by Skuid to include the necessary permissions required by these critical updates. With this change to Skuid - guest, portal, and authenticated users should be able to access Skuid pages after the Salesforce critical updates are applied.

    For more details about the critical updates, please read Salesfore’s release notes:
    Restrict Access to @AuraEnabled Apex Methods for Guest and Portal Users Based on User Profile 

    Restrict Access to @AuraEnabled Apex Methods for Authenticated Users Based on User Profile
