Dashboard Running User Error

When a new Dashboard is included in a managed package upgrade Salesforce doesn't automatically set the "View dashboard as" user. So you will see an error the first time you view the new dashboard: "Error: The running user for this dashboard doesn't have permission to run reports. Your system administrator should select a different running user for this dashboard."



  • If you have Admin rights (or can edit Dashboards), click Edit on the Dashboard.
  • On the upper right of your Dashboard, "View dashboard as" enter one of your users (preferably one who can see all data). Or click the down-arrow to use the "run as logged in user" option


  • Save and close the dashboard
