Hi ,

1--How to create a session and cookie in salesforce ?
I want to integrate Salesforce with some website from which I want to get some data. According to that website API, we have to create Sessions and then other working. I have searched for sessions in salesforce but have not found any related information that makes me clear about it. So please give me some right direction to get my answer.

I am not able to see the "Service Setup" in my Developer Org. 
In Organization-Wide Sharing Defaults I can see Standard Objects but it Shows few Custom Objects only.I Can't find some Custom Objects in OWD.Kindly give an Explanation on this.
Thanks in Advance!

I am attempting to complete the Lightning Experience Rollout Specialist superbadge and have run into a wall that I don't see anyone else posting about anywhere. 

When creating the app page for Paloma I added the Chatter, Report, and Account components, but I do not have the Dashboard component in my Lightning App Builder for some reason, and cannot figure out how to add a dashboard component to the page. Below is a screenshot. From what I've seen from screenshots online, it looks like most people have 9 standard components, including the Wave Dashboard component?

Thank you in advace for the help as this has been killing me since it's such a simple thing to get hung up on. 

Picture of lightning app builder for Paloma's app page.

To begin, I am not a technical admin. I am trying to keep Profiles clean so have pulled off Modify Alls from general profiles. I have one person who needs full access to a custom object (Subscriptions). I thought I had properly given him a Permission Set with Modify All on Subscriptions as well as View,Edit,Create on Accounts and Contacts as they are related. BUT he does not have the buttons for New or Field Dependencies. How can I give those back without giving him full Admin access? 
Thanks in advance!


Hi All,
I am on the Lightning Experience Rollout Specialist challenge 7 and getting the below error
"The Account record home page may not be activated."

I have done everyhting as per challenge and not getting any other errors.
My report name is as per Challenge "Opportunities Pipeline". 
Then I ran the report and added the funnel chart and named it as Opps by Stage.
Added the chart to 2 page layouts of accounts - Sales and Account Layout. (covering 2 record types for 2 profiles).

Still I am getting the error "The Account record home page may not be activated."

Ami i missing some step here or not doing something right. 
​Pls advise.

I have contact us info in our site such as
Name :
Phone number:

When user fill that information . I need to show a popup that "Thanks for contacting US" and need to create a new oppournity . How can i acheive it ?

For a certain accounts can they be coded so that only the account owner can see the opportunities, activities, notes, etc? If that is too hard can only certain opportunities, activities, notes, etc be coded so that only the owner can see them? I realize reporting is an implication but anything we can do in the system to limit visibility to certain account is being requested. Thanks, Troy. Note, I have looked into record types, sharing rules and groups. Salesforce supports suggests visual force due to the complexities in my org.
In which scenarios should we put the logic in apex controller vs java script controller

For eg: For making salesforce SOQL/DML statements, we can put the logic apex controller. Similarly, where should be put the logic for REST API calls? When should we use apex controller? Whar are the best practices
Hi All,

I registered an account with https://www.salesforce.com/form/signup/freetrial-sales-ee.jsp. I can log in via browser but can not log in via api. It reports "API_DISABLED_FOR_ORG: This organization or partner does not have API enabled".

I did some research, some say that need to enable API Access, but I can not find this option in my account. Does anyone know how to set it on a trial account?

Others say it depends on the type of account, and only some of the types of accounts are enabled API Access, such as development. Does anyone know where the related documents are?

Thanks very much!!!
I am littile bit confuse about <lightnign:input /> & <ui:input /> when to use which and what differences does it makes?
Hoping someone has insight.  There is a lightning component embedded inside a lightning component.  The component has been given and aura:id of 'buildingLU'   The component also has a couple of user defined attributes of 'buildingId' and 'buildingName.'  This lookup value needs to have the ability to easily be cleared out.  The onchange event of a checkbox fires an event called 'clearbuildingName'  That routine should clear the component values.  Having trouble setting the 'v.value' of the user defined attributes. Either that needs to happen or the component needs to somehow be rerendered.  That will appear like the field is cleared.  I have included the markup of the component and the javascript controller code.   Thank You.

If I use       component.find('buildingLU').set("v.buildingName" , "")         the value is cleared but the user interface still contains the text. 
<div class="slds-form-element">
    <div class="slds-form-element__control">
        <span class="slds-form-element__label" for="buildingLookup">building Name</span>
        <c:buildingLookupCmp aura:id="buildingLU" buildingId="{!v.Customer.buildingId__c}" buildingName="{!v.Customer.buildingId__r.Name}" />
    <div class="slds-float_right">
        <label class="slds-checkbox">
        <span class="slds-form-element__label" for="clearbuilding">Clear building</span>
         <input id="clearbuilding" type="checkbox" onchange="{!c.clearbuildingName}" /> 
         <span class="slds-checkbox--faux"></span>
clearbuildingName : function(component, event, helper) {       	
        component.find('buildingLU').set("v.value" , "");	
        var Customer = component.get("v.Customer");
        Customer['buildingId__c'] = "";
        Customer['buildingNumber'] = "";
        Customer['buildingId__r.Name'] = "";
        component.set("v.Customer", JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(Customer)));       


the next button seems to be stuck - anyone having this issue or know what I am doing wrong?

Thank you 


How can I retrieve Deployed Change Sets history in the past 2 years? Noticed some of the change set had been deleted automatically. 
I hope I am missing something obvious, but how do I print a contact record in Lightning?
The standard print in Firefox only prints what is on the screen.
I found an extension for Chrome, but couldn't get it to work.
Has anyone solved this one?

Picklist name is Industry with multiple values, based on this pick list values only i need to display that specific page layout.

Please let me know if there is any without using code.

If the subscriber org has a profile with some permissions on a custom object (custom object from managed package). If we upgrade package, does the permissions get overwritten? And is it same behaviour with package uninstall and re-install?

Hi All,

I have a scenario where i need to override Standard 'New' button on a custom object. On click of the button, a Modal should be displayed. This modal would be a form which will ask user to input some data and then Save the result on click of Save Button.

I already overrode the 'New' button with Lightning Component but instead of pop up, a page is displayed. 

Any ideas?

We have enabled the Country and State Pick lists for our org and added the required translations.
We also have got a scheduled Apex job that retrieves records and generate documnents for our clients (across the world).  Unfortunately all the country and state values are retrieved in the user settings of the running user.  This has got the undesired effect of rendering an address on the letter partially in the language it was captured (street and city fields) and partially in the language of the running user (Country and State).
So we end up with addresses that looks like 
Tullastraße 12345
Instead of 
Tullastraße 12345
Oh - the records we generate is a mixed bag, different countries.
Is there a way to retrieved the country and state values for a record (Account/Contact/Lead/etc) based on the "native" langueg for the record?  We do have the preferred language available as a custom field on each record.  Or is there a formula/apex we can use to set the "native" counrty and state values for the record I.e. Account.BillingCountry.getValue(DE)?

Suggestions will be appreciated!

Hi ,

I have been using my social account(google plus) for trailhead but for force 1, I signed up with my email.
How to import trailhead completed challenges and badges  to salesforce1 (these are two different logins)
I would like to show/hide records in VF if a value exists in a multi-select picklist.  Typically to render something true or false, I use == to check.  However, I can't do this with a mutli-select picklist.  Thoughts?  I am thinking something like the following needs to happen.

rendered="{!IF(contactskill.areas_of_expertise__c.contains(skill), true, false)}

I've gone through this challenge and have everything set up as I think it should be and I've gotten an error. After much messing about I've searched here and my org is set up exactly as it should be as far as I can tell. I know a lot of people have had the error cause by the required feild and behaviour when a look-up record is deleted, but I've got that sorted and that's not the error I get. I'm getting:

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
There was an unexpected error in your org which is preventing this assessment check from completing: System.DmlException: Delete failed. First exception on row 0 with id a000Y00000J7PspQAF; first error: ENTITY_IS_DELETED, entity is deleted: []

I can't figure it out and can find no mention of this error anywhere on the forums.

Can someone please help...I've spent way too long trying to sort this out now.
When I create an opportunity, certain times I need to round robin the opportunity, but not for every opportunity. Is there a way Apex trigger?)  to create the option (checkbox?) to send the opportunity to a round robin?
Hi Everyone,

I am stuck on this challnage and not sure what is wrong. Can anyone share the step by step screenshot? Do we have to do this in classic or lightining? I already spent so much time on this and feeling frustrated
