What are the possible options for UserType?

The Salesforce docs describe the UserInfo.getUserType() call, which returns the same options as user.UserType. But I can’t figure out where to find a list of the possible return values. Please provide a complete list, including what each value means.

Answer

Your best bet is to refer to the Salesforce api docs. They do a good job of explaining the fields and their possible values. The link to the doc in question is:
https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.212.0.api.meta/api/sforce_api_objects_user.htm

I’ve included the snippet from the UserType field below.

Description The category of user license. Each UserType is associated
with one or more UserLicense records. Each UserLicense is associated
with one or more profiles. In API version 10.0 and later, valid values
include:

  • Standard: user license. This user type also includes Salesforce Platform and Salesforce Platform One user licenses. Label is Standard.
  • PowerPartner: PRM user whose access is limited because he or she is a partner and typically accesses the application through a partner
    portal. Label is Partner.
  • CSPLitePortal: user whose access is limited because he or she is an organization’s customer and accesses the application through
    aCustomer Portal. Label is High Volume Portal.
  • CustomerSuccess: user whose access is limited because he or she is an organization’s customer and accesses the application through a
    Customer Portal. Label is Customer Portal User.
  • PowerCustomerSuccess: user whose access is limited because he or she is an organization’s customer and accesses the application through
    a Customer Portal. Label is Customer Portal Manager. Users with this
    license type can view and edit data they directly own or data owned by
    or shared with users below them in the Customer Portal role hierarchy.
  • CsnOnly: user whose access to the application is limited to Chatter. This user type includes Chatter Free and Chatter moderator
    users. Label is Chatter Free.
