Is recordId same as Guid.

Is it right to assume that every record that is created for any object (standard/custom) there will be a recordid that will be created and it is a Guid. This is the one which gets displayed in the url when we look at that object.

Please help.

Thanks

Sai

Yes, any record that gets created in Salesforce.com will have a unique id allocated to it, which will be referenced by the APIs for updating or deleting that specific record. It is usually 15-18 characters in length. Example:

 

servername.salesforce.com/00Q9000000IBE9f (this part of the URL is the unique Record Id)

 

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need further inputs on this.

Hi Sai,
Yes, object the ID in Salesforce is a GUID in your organization.
Note that the 15 long chars ID is case-sensitive and the 18 chars long ID is case-insensitive.
Regarding what you have mentioned about the RUL, you can see that when you enter an object in Salesfoce the URL is the object ID.
