How many users have a specific permissionset

Hello- we need to generate a report on users with specific permissionset? I know we can't report on permissionset. What are the other alternatives to address this?

Yes you are right, you can't report on Permission Sets. There is an Idea ( for this you can vote on.

And here is a fantastic tool you can user to do what you are asking and more.

Let me know if you need any further help on this.

Take a look here Using SOQL to Determine Your User’s Permissions (  Meanwhile you can promote and upvote this idea here Ability to report on Users' Permission Set Assignments (  Or you can capture this information in some custom object and can run a report and also add dashboard for that if this information is important for you.

Did you sort this out ?

You could export the data and report from Excel.  I used and used their data query tool with: 

SELECT Id, PermissionSetId, AssigneeId FROM PermissionSetAssignment

then I exported to .CSV

You may want to export the following: 

SELECT Id, Name, Label, Description FROM PermissionSet 

to link the ID to the name of the Permission Set.

Another tool to use is -   You don't need to know query language for that one, just the object names - PermissionSet and PermissionSetAssignment.

Good Luck!
