Use of Inherited Sharing in Apex Class

This post explains the use of inherited sharing in apex class
If you specify inherited sharing Keyword on an Apex class,  which allows the class to run in the sharing mode of the class that called it. Using inherited sharing enables you to pass security review and ensure that your privileged Apex code is not used in unexpected or insecure ways.

  1. An Apex class with inherited sharing runs as with sharing when used as a Visualforce page controller, Apex REST service, or an entry point to an Apex transaction.
  2. An Apex class with Inherited Sharing is being called from some other class which is having without sharing setting, then it will run in without sharing mode.
This example declares an Apex class with inherited sharing and a Visualforce invocation of that Apex code. Because of the inherited sharing declaration, only opportunities for which the running user has sharing access are displayed. If the declaration is omitted, even opportunities that the user has no rights to view are displayed due to the insecure default behavior of omitting the declaration.
Apex Class
public inherited sharing class OpportunityMethods {
    public list<Opportunity> getAllTheOpps(){
        return [SELECT Id, Name, StageName FROM Opportunity];
Visualforce page
<apex:page controller="OpportunityMethods">
    <apex:repeat value="{!getAllTheOpps}" var="record">

How to Enforce Field-Level Security Permissions for SOQL Queries?

This post explains how to enforce field level security permissions for SOQL queries,
In Spring' 19 release salesforce introducing this feature, at the time of writing this post this feature in Beta stage.
Use the WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED clause to enable checking for the field- and object-level security permissions on SOQL SELECT queries, including subqueries and cross-object relationships. Although performing these checks was possible in earlier releases, this clause substantially reduces the verbosity and technical complexity in query operations.

How it Works?

If fields or objects referenced in the SELECT clause using WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED are inaccessible to the user, an exception is thrown, and no data is returned.

Example: 1
SELECT Id, Name, StageName, ClosedDate FROM Opportunity WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED
if the stage name is inaccessible to the user it throws an exception insufficient permissions. and no data return.

Example: 2
SELECT Id, (SELECT FirstName, LastName FROM Contacts), (SELECT Description, StageName, CloseDate FROM Opportunities) 
if the First Name, stage name is inaccessible to the user it throws an exception insufficient permissions. and no data return.
