Problem description

SFDC admin tried to run Refresh Validation on his org configured under Org Tools -> Environment Hub, and gets an error stating: INVALID_TYPE: Cannot use ApexTrigger in this organization


Missing Permissions: 

  • Author Apex or Modify Metadata
  • Customize Application


Refer to the Salesforce documents to assign these missing permissions to your SFDC 2.0 admin account: 

  1. Customize Application
  2. Author Apex
  3. Modify Metadata

Note: Professional Edition doesn't support Metadata API access; due to which, the Refresh Validation will generate the above-stated error.
