Named Credentials

Hi ,

A named credential specifies the URL of a callout endpoint and its required authentication parameters in one definition. To simplify the setup of authenticated callouts, specify a named credential as the callout endpoint. If you instead specify a URL as the callout endpoint, you must register that URL in your org’s remote site settings and handle the authentication yourself. For example, for an Apex callout, your code would need to handle authentication, which can be less secure and especially complicated for OAuth implementations.

Salesforce manages all authentication for callouts that specify a named credential as the callout endpoint so that you don’t have to. You can also skip remote site settings, which are otherwise required for callouts to external sites, for the site defined in the named credential.

Named credentials are supported in these types of callout definitions:
§  Apex callouts
§  External data sources of these types:
o   Salesforce Connect: OData 2.0
o   Salesforce Connect: OData 4.0
o   Salesforce Connect: Custom (developed with the Apex Connector Framework)

By separating the endpoint URL and authentication from the callout definition, named credentials make callouts easier to maintain. For example, if an endpoint URL changes, you update only the named credential. All callouts that reference the named credential simply continue to work.
Named credentials support basic password authentication and OAuth 2.0. You can set up each named credential to use an org-wide named principal or to use per-user authentication so that users can manage their own credentials.

To reference a named credential from a callout definition, use the named credential URL. A named credential URL contains the scheme callout:, the name of the named credential, and an optional path. For example: callout:My_Named_Credential/some_path.
You can append a query string to a named credential URL. Use a question mark (?) as the separator between the named credential URL and the query string. For example: callout:My_Named_Credential/some_path?format=json.


In the following Apex code, a named credential and an appended path specify the callout’s endpoint.
HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
Http http = new Http();
HTTPResponse res = http.send(req);
The referenced named credential specifies the endpoint URL and the authentication settings.
Path:Setup->Administer->Security Controls-> Named Credentials

Named credential detail page
If you use OAuth instead of password authentication, the Apex code remains the same. The authentication settings differ in the named credential, which references an authentication provider that’s defined in the org.
Named credential authentiation settings with OAuth options
In contrast, let’s see what the Apex code looks like without a named credential. Notice that the code becomes more complex to handle authentication, even if we stick with basic password authentication. Coding OAuth is even more complex and is an ideal use case for named credentials.
HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();

// Because we didn't set the endpoint as a named credential, 
// our code has to specify:
// - The required username and password to access the endpoint
// - The header and header information
String username = 'myname';
String password = 'mypwd';
Blob headerValue = Blob.valueOf(username + ':' + password);
String authorizationHeader = 'BASIC ' +
req.setHeader('Authorization', authorizationHeader);
// Create a new http object to send the request object
// A response object is generated as a result of the request  
Http http = new Http();
HTTPResponse res = http.send(req);

Reading Attachment ID's from CSV,retrieve from Salesforce.com and Stores into the local folder using java


Here in the following example

We tried to explain how to read csv file which has salesforce.com attachment id's and then retrieving the related documents to local folder.
Use Case :
Developer gets one csv file with  attachment id's and those needs to be retrieved from salesforce.com and stores into local folder.

Please look into the comments you can uderstand the what is the code for reading id's from CSV file and qurying the same from Salesforce.com and stores into local folder.

Getting Custom Field Id without hardcoding through Tooling API (Without Http Callout also)


We can get custom field ids for URL hacking to auto populate through Tooling API as shown below.

Apex Code:

List<FieldDefinition> fieldList =  [SELECT DurableId,QualifiedApiName FROM FieldDefinition WHERE EntityDefinition.QualifiedApiName ='Account'and QualifiedApiName='NoofEmployees__c'];
String NoofEmployeesId = fieldList[0].DurableId.split('\\.')[1];

Visualforce Page (Java Script):

<script type="text/javascript">
            var __sfdcSessionId = '{!GETSESSIONID()}';
<script src="../../soap/ajax/38.0/connection.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
var qr = sforce.connection.query("SELECT DurableId,QualifiedApiName FROM FieldDefinition WHERE EntityDefinition.QualifiedApiName ='Account'and QualifiedApiName='NoofEmployees__c'" );
              var NoofEmployeesId = qr.getArray("records")[0].DurableId.split('.')[1];

Exposing an Apex Class as REST Web Service

Hi ,

We are going to learn how to write a REST webservice in salesforce.com.

We can expose our Apex classes and methods so that external applications can access our code

and our application through the REST architecture.

 @RestResource annotation is used to expose a class as REST resource .

 Similarly we have to add annotations to methods to expose them throug REST like @HttpPost,@HttpGet etc.,

 If we add "@HttpGet" annotation for a method to expose it as a Rest resource then that can be called by Http GET request
 from external applications.

Sample Post Service:
global without sharing class StudentCreationcls {
    global static String createStudentRecord(DoctorServiceParser doctObj){
        Doctor__c doctorObj = new Doctor__c();
        doctorObj.Name =doctObj.Name;
        doctorObj.Salary__c = doctObj.Salary;
        doctorObj.Gender__c = doctObj.Gender;            
        Database.saveResult saveResult = database.insert(doctorObj,false);
            System.debug('Record Id:'+saveResult.getId());
        JSONGenerator gen=JSON.createGenerator(true);    
        gen.writeStringField('message','Doctor record is created Successfully');
        String responseString= gen.getAsString();
        return responseString;

Parser Class:
This class will be used for parsing the details in the request
global class DoctorServiceParser {

    global String Name{get;set;}
    global String FirstName{get;set;}
    global decimal consultationFee{get;set;}
    global String LastName{get;set;}
    global decimal Salary{get;set;}
    global String Gender{get;set;}

Our service endpoint will be :https://hostnamesalesforce/services/apexrest/DoctorService

Request Format for this:

We can execute this in rest Explorer of workbench for validating before we are going to give for exteranl applications.

Create Lead Record using Lightning Component


This example explains you how to create lead record from Lightning component.

here we did the following things

  • one apex class with aura enabled methods  which has lead insert.
  • one  Lightning component you can see previous example how to create a component
  • included lightning styles from lightning design system.
  • include controller with lightning component to invoke apex method and process
  • created one app to execute component
Apex class:

public class LightningLeadCreatecls {
    public static Id creatLeadRecord(Lead leadObj){
        upsert leadObj;
        return leadObj.id;


<aura:component implements="force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,flexipage:availableForRecordHome,force:hasRecordId" access="global" controller="LightningLeadCreatecls">
 <!--including lightning styles-->
    <ltng:require styles="{!$Resource.Lightning_slds+'/assets/styles/salesforce-lightning-design-system.css'}"/>
     <ltng:require styles="{!$Resource.Lightning_slds+'/assets/styles/salesforce-lightning-design-system.min.css'}"/>
<!-- Preparation of lead object with fields-->
    <aura:attribute name="leadObj" type="Lead"  default="{'sobjectType':'lead',
   <div class="slds">
       <div class="slds-form-element">
          <label class="slds-form-element__label" for="FirstName">First Name</label>
          <div class="slds-form-element__control">
            <ui:inputText aura:id="FirstName" class="slds-input" value="{!v.leadObj.FirstName}" placeholder="First Name" />
       <div class="slds-form-element">
          <label class="slds-form-element__label" for="LastName">Last Name</label>
          <div class="slds-form-element__control">
