Trailhead - Create an Account Using REST API and Workbench

Hello,

I have this error when I try to check challenge:

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Could not find an account named 'Blackbeards Grog Emporium' created from Workbench with the Description 'The finest grog in the seven seas.'


In the next picture you can see what I send by the Workbench

The result is succes and in my Developer Org I can see the Account created correctly, but the challenge isn't passed.

I've created other Account with the same Name and Description, so now I've the Account twice (but different ids) and now I passed the challenge! I don't know why.

In the Trailhead with SOAP Ui (https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/force_com_dev_intermediate/api_basics/api_basics_soap) occurs the same. It's necessary create two Accounts to pass the challenge.

I submitted the feedback in salesforce from below window. You can also add your feedback for same module

I think my work is correct, but the challenge verification is still giving me an error.
If you think you've completed the challenge correctly, but you are still getting errors, make sure that you are using a fresh Developer Edition that does not have a namespace prefix. (What is a namespace prefix?) If you are still having trouble, use the “Share Feedback” button in the footer or on the right column to send a support request.

Let us know if this will help you

I think it works if you give description ending with dot (.), may be validating complete text. Initially it hasn't worked for me, later when i copied the exact text it worked.

{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

Hi Everyone, I am also getting the same error, even after executing the below code several times, in application I can see the account is created but not able to pass the challenge - 

{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

I can't pass this challenge. Tried everything suggested above. Please fix this.

I feel the Trailhead validation for this challenge is failing, you must have done the exercise as expected though it gave you a error. Even i got error multiple times, then I tried to insert the  Account twice through workbench, then i deleted both and again inserted... it worked. This is not be a guidence or help but if you go back and check none of the response have final solution, expect a promise from Jeff that it will be taken care. Make sure that you are not directly modifying any data from UI
Jeff DouglasJeff Douglas
All, sorry for the inconvenience. We are updating this on the next release. In the meantime, run the following query and ensure there is only 1 record in your org with the correct name and description. You may have multiple records if you ran the process a number of times for testing.
 
select id, description from account where name = 'Blackbeards Grog Emporium'

Hi Jeff,
I'm getting the below error when Check Challenge.

There was an unhandled exception. Please reference ID: QPFKIMCY. Error: Faraday::ClientError. Message: INVALID_FIELD: description from account where name = 'Blackbeards Grog Emporium' ^ ERROR at Row:1:Column:43 encrypted field 'name' cannot be filtered in a query call

Please help.
Jeff DouglasJeff Douglas
It looks like you are using an org that was used for another challenge where you encrypted the name field in accounts. You won't be able to pass this challenge with that org, you'll have to sign up for a new DE org and do the challenge in that one.

Thank you Jeff.
Is there a way to revert back encrypting the name field in accounts? I would like to verify the settings.

Hey team. I'm getting this error when trying to create an Account.

METHOD NOT ALLOWED.
HTTP Method 'POST' not allowed. Allowed are HEAD,GET

Is this due to a previous Trail I may have completed?
Mira CavéMira Cavé
Hi Team,
I am getting the same error message as Rasforce1 above. Can you help, please?
(the GET and HEAD service does work fine, btw)

Hi Guys, 

In my case, the issue is different. I can create the account. However, the description field always appear as New description

User-added image

I tried using the v36.0 and the version v37.0
 
{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "ShippingCity" : "New York",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

However, the issue is always the same. The description field that is the type Long Text Area(32000), apparently cannot be changed on creation. 

I will use the update record in workbench to pass the challenge and update the description field as required. 

Kind regards, 

J

P.s: I tried with Description or description, so, the issue is not case sensitive.

Hello all,

Here's the workaround for this trail.

Error Message : ERROR at Row:1:Column:43 encrypted field 'name' cannot be filtered in a query call.

Issue : Name field is being encrypted, hence you will not be able to clear this trail with your existing Dev Org.

Resolution : Create a new dev org :
https://developer.salesforce.com/signup
You can easily link the new dev org with your existing trail head Id

Now login into Workbench with new dev id :
Select Post MEthod and paste the follwing :

{
  "Name" : "Blackbeards Grog Emporium",
  "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."
}

And you will pass...
Thanks

Abhishek

Ya that didn't work either

I had the same issue and found that the description field had the value of "New Description"  Deleted all the trigger runing on the Account object and the description field received the correct text, "The finest grog in the seven seas."  Passed the challenge after killing triggers
Nilotpal RoyNilotpal Roy
Hi All,
Please make sure you use (.) "description" : "The finest grog in the seven seas."

Use 
/services/data/v39.0/query/?q=SELECT+description+From+Account+WHERE+Name='Blackbeards Grog Emporium'

 to Execute using GET

Hi Rosforce1 and Meera,

I also got the same error as 'METHOD NOT ALLOWED. HTTP Method 'POST' not allowed. Allowed are HEAD,GET'. The reason for this error is not having correct URI path. Please change the URI to '/services/data/v41.0/sobjects/account' and click Execute. You should not see the error now and you should see account created message. Challenge is passed now!

Thanks,
Sudhakar

The Trailhead validation for this challenge isn't working properly, created two or more accounts on several orgs, after some time and switching between them it suddenly passed...wierd and frustrating. All other challenges in this Module passed with the first try.

It should work,

Select Production and select any version [Latest recommended]
Check the Agree to terms of service and log in with your Trailhead credentials
Let me know if you face any issue [Note: you should logged in your sales force using same credentials]

Steps:
Log in to your Trailhead DE org and navigate to Workbench.
For Environment, select Production.
For API Version, select the highest available number.
Make sure that you select I agree to the terms of service.
Click Login with Salesforce. 
Bhuvanesh MohankumarBhuvanesh Mohankumar
I have explained you the steps with screen shots, Since I have already logged in my salesforce, the User name is already displaying in right top.

Once you log in successfully, you have to "ACCEPT" for allowing workspace to install in your salesforce

You can see following steps.

Hi Jeff,
            Still I could not pass this challenge even after creating 2 Accouns with unique IDs.
Pls suggest some solution
Santosh Kumar PradhanSantosh Kumar Pradhan

Hi all,

This seems to be problem with old Salesforce Orgs, where you could not even run a query in Developer Console like follows

[SELECT Id FROM Account WEHER Name = 'hi'] 
//gives error in developer console saying that name can not be filtered
New orgs does not give this error.

Heyy,

It's Veryy Easyyy!!!

Make sure you all are separating the Name and Description feilds by "comma"  ( I mean this one symbol ",")   that's enough it is simple as that. Don't confuse more.
Its working for me. 

Don't forget to appreciate if it good for you!
