The challenge is:

You've been given a requirement to keep Contact addresses in sync with the Account they belong to. Use Process Builder to create a new process that updates all child Contact addresses when the address of the Account record is updated. This process:Can have any name.
Must be activated.
Must update Contact mailing address fields (Street, City, State, Post Code, Country) when the parent Account shipping address field values are updated.

I start with Accounts when records is created or edited.
Filter criteria where accounts shipping address (street, city, state, zip code) is changed (used "or" logic).

I am stuck on the next step "add action".  I started with action type "Update Records".
On objects, I can't seem to change Accounts to Contacts.  Why?

Hi there :)

i'm currently working on an native Android app for my company and ran into some problems with Salesforce lately.

I hope i can find some help here.

What i want to achieve:
The company has a lot of Accounts in Salesforce with 3 important fields for the app: Name, Business (Workshop or Parts Dealer) and location(latitude, longitude)
I would like to show those Accounts(Workshops/Parts Dealers) as markers on a google map in my Android app based on a radius around the user's current location. So it would be more than sufficient to get the data as JSON or XML(i read about sObjects, which would be nice too)

The app will be freely available on Google Play Store and every user should be able to see all the Workshops/Parts dealers around the world.

The problem i'm facing is that i can't find a way to fetch the data inside my app without authenticating every user with a Salesforce-Login. 
Which API is the best to use in this case?

It would be so awsome if anybody could help me with this problem.

What i tried so far: 
- SalesforceMobileSDK: If i extend SalesForceApplication i always end up with the Salesforce-Login Screen.
It seems that every client has to be authenticated for API-calls to work. I tried using the method "peekUnauthenticatedRestClient", but this method only works on full path URL's(e.g. "https://api.spotify.com/v1/search?q=James%20Brown&type=artist"), which isn't really practically for my Use-case.

- I feel like i read nearly all docs about salesforce api, but can't quite get my head around how to solve this problem, although it seems like to be a pretty common use-case.  

- would a salesforce-apex method which would select all records inside a set radius around the user's location be accessable without authentication?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Follow this -> 
1) Write a Restservice to expose your data. 
global with sharing class MyRestResource {

    global static List<Account> doGet() {
        RestRequest req = RestContext.request;
        RestResponse res = RestContext.response;
       List< Account>  result = [SELECT Id, Name, Business,Location FROM Account ];
        return result;

2)  Create a Community and provide access to apex class and account object to the Guest user profile. 
    Samplecommunity url -> https://somedomain.cs16.force.com/communityname

3) Go to workbench and test your API using rest explorer 
    relative url ->  /services/apexrest/Account
4) Your public url will now be   https://somedomain.cs16.force.com/communityname/services/apexrest/Account

Hello, due to a major production udpate I need to remotely log off all users who are logged into a Field Service Mobile application.

Is there a simple way how to do this, or do I have to revoke all users OAuth connections to the app?

You can reach out to Salesforce Field Service page on https://trailblazers.salesforce.com/_ui/core/chatter/groups/GroupProfilePage?g=0F93A000000PcSs for inputs on your ask.

This is DX bug probably introduced in the latest-rc or version plugin version 50.4.0. You can track it here - 

As one the contributors commented, switching from REST to SOAP will help get past the issue - 
sfdx config:set restDeploy=false

Else, you can also downgrade the plugin version to 50.13.3 (Works for me) - 
sfdx plugins:install salesforcedx@50.13.3

Nothing seems to be unusual with the flow. However I am seeing the above error while debugging. A screen repeats at the bottom with another error "Unfortunately, there was a problem. Please try again. If the problem continues, get in touch with your administrator with the error ID shown here and any other related details. Error ID: 669715995-42943 (1860265573)" and "This page has an error. You might just need to refresh it. [Event fired] Failing descriptor: {markup://flowruntime:flowRuntimeV2}". All this flow screen does is based on certain conditions it needs to set visibility on the next screen.

Unfortunately I cannot mark it as best answer as it was not even close to solving the issue. The real issue was null point exception and was able to figure it out by reverse engineering. Thanks for jumping in though. Basically I messed up picking up the right variables and hence running into null pointer exception.

Performing the first Challenge of this Superbadge for APEX, I am receiving the below error. But it is not true because the Maintenance Request does indeed have all of the attributes cited when I try via the GUI and via a Test Class. Can someone please tell me what is wrong?

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong:
Inserting a new Maintenance Request of type 'Routine Maintenance' and then closing it did not create of a new Maintenance Request based upon the original record correctly. The challenge is expecting to find the closed Maintenance Request plus an 'New' Maintenance Request of type 'Routine Maintenance' with the same Vehicle as the closed one.

(Also, the challenge didn't specifically mention that the Case and Product2 objects should be relabeled)
