Hi Mita,

Please find the solution. "When new opportunity is created, I would like to auto populate contact role."
we can write trigger for this i.e when the opportunity is created then opportunityContactRole is also created.

trigger OpportunityTrigger on Opportunity (after insert) {
    if(trigger.isAfter && trigger.isInsert){
        set<Id> accountSet=new set<Id>();
        for(Opportunity op:trigger.new){
        List<Contact> contactList=new List<Contact>([select id,accountid from Contact where accountid in: accountSet]);
        List<OpportunityContactRole> ocrList=new List<OpportunityContactRole>();
        for(Opportunity op:trigger.new){
            for(Contact con:contactList){
               OpportunityContactRole ocr=new OpportunityContactRole();
            insert ocrList;

Please let me know it is working or not?

if it helps you please mark it as the Best Answer so that other people would take reference from it.

When creating a new Opportunity the contact role is automatically populated when the opportunity is created from a contact record(standard functionality). In the case where users create an opportunity from a different record (e.g Account), the opportunity contact role is not automatically populated. https://soundak.com/
