Global Picklist Feild in Salesforce

This feature we are going to discuss here is a Pilot/BETA version which is available only in some of the Editions as well as many features may not be available until Salesforce announces this feature through documentation or Press Releases or Public Statements.

As we already know that Salesforce has introduced a new feature called Global Picklist (BETA version) . These Global Picklist concept is similar to Global Actions concepts where create once and use many times across all objects.

Similarly these Global Picklist is nothing but a creating a Picklist field globally and use that picklist field values across the all other objects in salesforce whenever your creating a any picklist field.

How To Create and How to Use It

1. Goto Setup---->Create---> Click on PickLists

2. Click on New to create a Global PickList

3. Give the Label Name and Description and Click on Save

4. Click on New to add picklist values

5.Enter all picklist values each one in new line

6.After Saving the field looks like below

7.Goto any object and try to create a new Picklist field

8.After clicking on new Select field type as Picklist

9.Here you will get an option to select Global Picklist values as a picklist values for this field.Select the global picklist field that you want to select.The strictly enforce picklist values option is automatically selected.

10. Custom picklist Field detail page looks like below.


        These Global Picklist values will not allow you to enter non picklist field values from the APIs(like Developer Console,Data loader etc..).Example if you define in Global picklist values as New,Open and Close .Whenever your creating a record using APIs if you pass value as In Progress it will not allow because In Progress not available in that picklist field values.

Limitations to Pilot Version

1.For this pilot, the list of inherited values doesn’t appear on the detail page for a picklist that’s based on a global picklist.
2.You can create upto 500 Global picklist fields for organisation

Settings and Uploading Custom metadata Records with Custom Metadata Loader in Salesforce

In my previous posts I have explained what is Custom MetaData Loader .Now I'm going to explain how to set up this tool/application in salesforce.

1. Download the Complete application Zip file from the git hub Source.

2. Deploy the Downloaded Zip file into your org using below tools
3. Once you have deployed the zip file successfully it will creates below components
  • 10 Apex Classes
  • 2  Apex Page
  • 1  Custom Application
  • 1  Custom meta data type
  • 1  Custom tab
  • 1  Permission Set
    For complete package.xml file you can refer here

4. Goto Setup-->Permission Sets-->Click on Custom Metadata loader-->Manage Assignments

5. Click on Add Assignments -->Add the users to whom you want to give access for this App.

6. Goto Application menu Select Custom Metadata Loader application.

7. Clicking on Custom Metadata Loader you will be receiving below error.

8.To resolve that error we need to create a one Remote Site Setting. On clicking on the below Create Remote Site Setting button it will automatically creates a remote site setting directly.

9. Even after clicking the button your not able to create or if your getting error like Cannot create a new component with the namespace: srinu_dev_ed. Only components in the same namespace as the organization can be created through the API it means in your org you have enabled/created some custom domain.

10.To fix this issue 

  • In Classic : copy the complete page url where your receiving this error and goto Remote Site setting and give below details and save it.          

  • In Lightning : you cannot simply copy and paste the URL to the error page on the Custom Metadata Loader tab, you will need the VisualForce URL instead. Use where _____ is your custom domain, for example  
        Remote Site Name : c_mdapi
        Remote Site URL         : Copied page URL
        Active                       : Checked

11. Now everything is finished on clicking on the Custom metadata loader you will receive the below screen.So you can start uploading the .csv file to insert the records.

The .csv file header names must be the Api names of the Custom meta data type for auto mapping the fields.

Enjoy with Custom Metadata Loader....................!

How to set Createddate Field value for Test Record in Salesforce Test class

(Note: The feature we are discussing here is as per the Salesforce Spring 16 preview release notes,So this feature is available from Spring 16 release of Salesforce, but features may or may not be available after the Spring 16 go to live )

Before Spring 16 if you are inserting let assume 20 test records in salesforce test class for all those 20 test records the created date is same .If you are working any scenario like to fetch only latest records 20 you will be getting all that 20 records with same created date because all records are inserted with same date so you can't guaranty that in which order they are coming even if you are using order by created date.

From Spring 16 release releasing this great feature to set the created date by the developer for the test records in salesforce test classes (It may or may not be released in Spring as per the note above).

The new Test class method called Test.setCreatedDate(RecordId,DateTime) which allows to set the created date for the test records in salesforce test class.

How to use:
1 . Create a test record in test class.
2.  Pass that record Id along with date time that you want set to Test.setCreatedDate(Id,DateTime).

 private class SetCreatedDateTest {  
   static testMethod void testSetCreatedDate() {  
     Account a = new Account(name='Test Account');  
     insert a;  
     Test.setCreatedDate(a.Id, DateTime.newInstance(2012,12,12));  
     Account myAccount = [SELECT Id, Name, CreatedDate FROM Account   
                WHERE Name ='Test Account' limit 1];  
     System.assertEquals(myAccount.CreatedDate, DateTime.newInstance(2012,12,12));  

Key points:
1.All database changes are rolled back at the end of a test. You can’t use this method on records that existed before your test executed.
2.You also can’t use setCreatedDate in methods annotated with @isTest(SeeAllData=true), because those methods have access to all data in your org.
3.This method takes two parameters—an sObject ID and a Datetime value—neither of which can be null.
4. You can see the doc related to this setCreatedDate at Reference Doc for SetCreatedDate.

I think now everyone is eagerly waiting for this new feature.Enjoy....!
