Hi,

 

I am a developer new to the force environment. I am working on putting together a customer portal for my organization.

 

I followed online tutorials and got one set up. However, the look and feel of this portal is different and seems older than our actual Salesforce tenant look and feel.

The configurable look and feel is limited to changing fonts and colors. There is no simple way to change the styling and make it look like our salesforce tenant or even our website.

 

I read that sites.com can be used to make sites rich in styling and graphics and use them in the customer portal.

 

My question is how can this be acomplished? all the way from a custom login page to the portal itself where the portal style, look and feel is similar to our website.

It seems like somehow I need to override the default stylesheet of the portal and override it with the Sites.com pages.

 

So this is actually about how to accomplish retaining customer portal functionality with a better and modern looking GUI using sites.com

 

Can somebody please point me in the right direction as to how I can get a start with this. Thanks in advance.

I have created sharing rules, roles and users in roles. But sharing rules on custom object dont apply, on sales force object Accounts and Contact work. I have pages.

Does usage of jquery menus and java scripts on pages overrides sharing rules?

Thanks.

 

i need to dispaly the custom field name in chines language in page layout,with out using apex and visual force page.

Hello all, when adding a new user there is a checkbox for Salesfroce CRM Content User:



This checkbox gives the users permission to contribute documents to whichever library they have authoring privileges. We are running out of these licenses and we wanted to run a report to find all the users who have this checkbox checked.This field is not avialable as a filter in Salesforce Reports.

 

According to Salesforce documentation and other posts, this doesn't seem possible.

 

Anybody have any solutions or suggestions? We need to quickly access the 800 something users we have given this permission to so we can verfiy whether or not they actually need it. Thanks!

Hi,

 

I'm working through the tutorial here to enable a Customer Portal for my site:

 

http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/Authenticating_Users_on_Force.com_Sites

 

As suggested, I got an existing account ID (I used my own account, which is an admin account) and pasted it into my SiteRegisterController, so it looks like this:

 

    public with sharing class SiteRegisterController

    {   

         private static Id PORTAL_ACCOUNT_ID = '00590000000aB8l'; // ID of my admin account

 

         // snip ...

    }

 

 

But after I fill in all the details and hit siubmit on the self-registration page at /SiteRegister, I get:

 

Errors
 
  • Your request cannot be processed at this time. The site administrator has been alerted.
  • The account associated with this portal has no owner

 

The error email that gets sent to me when this occurs says:

 

    Catalog registration accountId parameter value is not valid 

 

How do I fix this? Feeling very lost in this system right now!

 

Thanks.

I am aware of deployment process from Ecplise. but need to know more and not finding good documentation.

 

1. Test class is taking which data QA or Prod ?

2. if it is taking Prod data then it is not possible to see information in the log.

3. if it is taking data of Prod then it is not required to Fix errors in the QA / Test environment.

4. Not able to find good document on this.

 

Please suggest it is urgent.

Hello,

We have a customer who want to implement reasonably complex questionnaires in salesforce. Currently they use a excel spread sheet. The questionnaires will have text, multiple choice and yes/ no answers. The answers to some questions will mean other questions will or will not be asked. The answers will also be combined to produce a score for the user.

 

Is this the sort of thing salesforce can do and if so please can you point me in the direction of the documentation for developing this sort of solution. I have had a look around the website but couldn't find anything in this area.

 

Thanks,

Patrick

Hi,

 

I created a lead assignment rule and queues.

 

My Crieteria states that if a custom checkbox field called Use Assignment Rule is checked then assign the lead to a particular queue.

 

This is not working.

 

Anyone know why? What am I doing wrong?

Not sure if I'm missing something, but after installing Maildrop and attempting to add email, I'm getting a message that I must use a security token.  Where do I find this???

setup a site and a custom object. The site public access guest user profile has full permissions to the custom object.

 

setup a controller and a page to show a record from the custom object. The site guest user also has access to the apex class and the visualforce page.

 

when i load the page as the site guest user i can see any standard fields for the custom object, but it does not show any custom fields for the custom object.

 

no error message just shows nothing.

 

what am i doing wrong?

Hello!

 

I am sorry if I talk about something which has already been explained a lot of time but I am new at Force.com...

 

I did the tutorial about building Contact Form which auto-populate the appropriate fields in salesforce database, my boss told me to one almost like this one, so I created a DE account and developed it. It works well, but know I have to make it works on the company account (in order to complete the company account fields and not mine).

 

So, I don't know if I have to export the form in the company account (I tried to do that but I don't understand how it works).

I am a bit desperate right know, I hope somebody can help me quickly.

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

The company I work for has been utilizing the built in Customer Portal for the last few years. This means they are using out of the box templates and we don't have much creative control over the portal. I was told that in order to customize the portal however we want we have to pair it with Force.com sites. I have walked through this tutorial:

 

http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/Authenticating_Users_on_Force.com_Sites

 

But I am still not seeing how to fully convert an already exsiting Customer Portal to a Force.com site where we will have creative control using Visual Force. Also I was informed that by doing this we will loose a lot of the built in permissions that we have setup in Profiles. For example if we have Profile A that can only see the tab "Solutions" but then Profile B can see tabs "Solutions and Ideas", I would have to recreate this using Apex if I want to completely restructure the site using Visual Force.

 

To put this in a nutshell I am not looking to take a public Force.com Site and add a level of authentication, I am looking to take a Customer Portal and completely take control of the creative/design so we can brand the look and feel. However this is done, I want to do it. However I was told Force.com sites is the way to do this. And if it can be done how does it affect existing Profiles?

 

Could anyone steer me in the right direction? Or is there anyone who has ever taken an existing Customer Portal and full customized it? How did you do it? Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Guys,


I have requirement to send an email alert to customer portal user. In that email, there is a link which points to a visualforce page with some parameter like record id. Once portal user logs in and browses that page, the URL  address is like below


 https://namespace.ap1.visual.force.com/apex/MYPAGE?id=a00000000000AK


My purpose is when portal user clicks on url below, the system can redirect him to that visualforce page. Because there is parameter in the URL, I can not use portal default tab when login.  

https://ap1.salesforce.com/secur/login_portal.jsp?orgId=00D90000000Kxxxxx&portalId=06090000000Hxxxxx

 

I have tried that one below

https://ap1.salesforce.com/secur/login_portal.jsp?orgId=00D90000000Kxxxxx&portalId=06090000000Hxxxx&

retURL=%2Fhttps://namespace.ap1.visual.force.com/apex/MYPAGE?id=a0K900ssss00000AK

 

But no luck.

 

Does anyone has idea for that??? thanks

 

Is there a permissions issue with custom fields in a Developer Edition Site? I made a simple little visualforce page that displays the name standard field as well as a couple custom fields.

Hi,

 

for each report, is it possible to get a count of how many times it was ran for this year? 

 

What i have got so far,

 

Created a matrix report on reports with report name in the y-axis and last run in the x-axis. Everything's cool, but i am not satisfied with the numbers thats being displayed. Almost all the reports are ran either 1 or 2 times for the whole year which is absolutely wrong. 

 

Few reports that are associated to dashbaords dont even show up in the list. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get the count of how many times each report was ran and why the reports associated to dashboards dont show up in the list.

 

FYI, i just made sure i clicked on "Run Report" button few dozen times for a report that was on the list. Then i re-ran the report and the last ran count still shows 1 only, why?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

We are building an integration between an external system to salesforce. For this we have build a web service to do the required functionality, and the external system is accessing the enterprise wsdl and the web service wsdl. Whenever a login request is sent to salesforce, upon succesful login a session id is generated and is maintained till the required action is performed in salesforce. How can i end this session from the external system? Is there any api call or anything to do this in salesforce?

Hi,

 

I've a baisc question on Integration and web services part.

 

1) We are integrating oracle with salesforce through web services. what i would like to know is,

      - If i provide the enterprise WSDL to oracle, can it login to salesforce (yes, i know this part) and create an account, contact and a case? ( should some one write the logic in oracle side to do this?)

      - Do i need to write a web service in Salesforce to create an account, contact and case, then send a response back to oracle? I thought i should write a web serivce, but some salesforce consulting expert told me that these actions are possible if i give the oracle team just the standard enterprise WSDL rather me writing a web service to do these actions.

 

Please confirm.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I've a requirement where i have to write a VF page to fetch, display data and email the same to a user as a report. So far what i've got is, i created a vf page and i am able to fetch and display the data on VF page. But how can i send (or schedule a run and send it out)  this table of data to a user. In fact this is more of a visualforce report. How can i use a VF page in reports, so that i can schedule it for future runs and send out the report to the user?

 

Ps: I was able to use the VF page as the data source for a dashboard,  but how can i do something similar for a report (use Vf page as data source for a report)?

System.debug('#############'+abc.size());

Number of SOQL queries: 1 out of 100

Hello,

 

I have a very basic question on Lists.

 

If any one can give me an explanation in very simple terms it would be really great.

 

List<Integer> myList = new List<Integer>();
	myList.add(47);
	myList.add(20);
	myList.add(43);
	System.assertEquals(myList.get(1));

 

Compile error at line 5 column 2
Method does not exist or incorrect signature: System.assertEquals(Integer)

 I thought, when i added three elements to a list which is of type integer (would basically look like this in an array myList ={47, 20, 43} ) and just expected the system assert to return me 20 as it is in the [1] index of the list. Why am i getting this incorrect signature error?

 

Also, i would like to know how to go about Null pointer exception errors and List index out of bound errors while dealing with the list.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I am playing around with the answers implementation in our org. I followed the steps given in Answers implementation guide and is working fine internally.

 

But what i want is, i would like to make it availbale in customer portal and force.com site. I made answers tab available in portal and made answers home as active site page for site. But the answers tab doesnt show up in customer portal (License is Customer portal Manager Standard). However i tried to dig into the profile for changing object level and FLS for answers but couldnt find anything related to answers (except for tab, data categories and vf pages). The same goes for site.

 

Is there any thing specific i am missing or my dev instance or sandbox org. Or the problem lies with the License type. We already have ideas setup and want to set up answers as well.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this please?

A quick question on Remote Site settings for apex call outs.

 

We have an non SF app hosted internally on a machine(inside our network firewall) and we would like our SF app talk to that app as apex call outs. Would the apex call outs work or should that non SF app be hosted on an external server?

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I have a question about the filter for dynamic dashboards. Does typing in TODAY/ THIS WEEK / THIS MONTH work for a created date field in filter criteria for the dashboard itself (not the report filter). I do not want to choose the date from the calendar view and i dont see anything for today or this week kind of stuff like how reports have it. Can anyone please let me know. 

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

for each report, is it possible to get a count of how many times it was ran for this year? 

 

What i have got so far,

 

Created a matrix report on reports with report name in the y-axis and last run in the x-axis. Everything's cool, but i am not satisfied with the numbers thats being displayed. Almost all the reports are ran either 1 or 2 times for the whole year which is absolutely wrong. 

 

Few reports that are associated to dashbaords dont even show up in the list. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get the count of how many times each report was ran and why the reports associated to dashboards dont show up in the list.

 

FYI, i just made sure i clicked on "Run Report" button few dozen times for a report that was on the list. Then i re-ran the report and the last ran count still shows 1 only, why?

 

Thanks.

We have some developement work done in another DE org. We want to bring those the new custom objects in to our main DE org.

 

The custom objects are master child objects and they also have several rollup summary fields.

 

I would like to know how we can bring these Custom Objects from one DE org to another DE org which are not connected together.

 

Thanks

Anyone know if it is possible to remove the Reset Password button from the customer portal user profile page without having to use VF and script?

Hello,

 

I am going through the tutorial for creating Summary report (I already created the Tabular Report). Here the steps at DeveloperForce:

 

1. Click the Reports tab.

2. Click New Report.

3. Select Other Reports, then Invoice Statements with Line Items and Merchandise.

4. Click Create.

 

At step 3, it says "Select Other Reports, then Invoice Statements with Line Items and Merchandise.". When I select "Other Reports" I do NOT see the option "Invoice Statements with Line Items and Merchandise". The only option I see is "Merchandise". What did I do wrong? How can I see "Invoice Statements with Line Items and Merchandise" under the "Other Reports" option??

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

We are building an integration between an external system to salesforce. For this we have build a web service to do the required functionality, and the external system is accessing the enterprise wsdl and the web service wsdl. Whenever a login request is sent to salesforce, upon succesful login a session id is generated and is maintained till the required action is performed in salesforce. How can i end this session from the external system? Is there any api call or anything to do this in salesforce?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

I've a baisc question on Integration and web services part.

 

1) We are integrating oracle with salesforce through web services. what i would like to know is,

      - If i provide the enterprise WSDL to oracle, can it login to salesforce (yes, i know this part) and create an account, contact and a case? ( should some one write the logic in oracle side to do this?)

      - Do i need to write a web service in Salesforce to create an account, contact and case, then send a response back to oracle? I thought i should write a web serivce, but some salesforce consulting expert told me that these actions are possible if i give the oracle team just the standard enterprise WSDL rather me writing a web service to do these actions.

 

Please confirm.

 

Thanks.

Because our customer portal needed a lot of style modifications, I decided to go via the Sites route, creating all pages using visualforce and associating the portal with the site.

 

My login page as of now is:

https://customer-portal.devsb1.cs11.force.com/SiteLogin

 

No browser likes the https. All warn me that this is an attack site.

 

For example IE gives the

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address."
Chrome also mentions a similar error and also puts a red crossmark over the https: part of the URL.
Using just http does not show an error in the login page but the rest of the pages still have the red cross over the https.

http://customer-portal.devsb1.cs11.force.com/SiteLogin

 

What am I missing here? Currently this portal and the site are being built in our sandbox environment.

What must I do to ensure there are no such errors with browsers and still retain the secure https:// URLs.

 

Thanks,
Calvin

Hi,

 

I am a developer new to the force environment. I am working on putting together a customer portal for my organization.

 

I followed online tutorials and got one set up. However, the look and feel of this portal is different and seems older than our actual Salesforce tenant look and feel.

The configurable look and feel is limited to changing fonts and colors. There is no simple way to change the styling and make it look like our salesforce tenant or even our website.

 

I read that sites.com can be used to make sites rich in styling and graphics and use them in the customer portal.

 

My question is how can this be acomplished? all the way from a custom login page to the portal itself where the portal style, look and feel is similar to our website.

It seems like somehow I need to override the default stylesheet of the portal and override it with the Sites.com pages.

 

So this is actually about how to accomplish retaining customer portal functionality with a better and modern looking GUI using sites.com

 

Can somebody please point me in the right direction as to how I can get a start with this. Thanks in advance.

Hello All,

 

 I tried connecting to SalesForce sandbox URL from visual studio through API and i got the follownig error. "INVALID_LOGIN: Invalid username, password, security token; or user locked out."

 

Logged into the sandbox url and downloaded the "enterprise.wsdl.xml"

Added the webreference for the above .wsdl file. and used the following code to login.

 

              

LoginResult lr;
                SforceService binding = new SforceService();
                binding.Timeout = 60000;

                //binding.Url = "https://test.salesforce.com/services/Soap/c/24.0/0DFC00000004hw6";
                lr = binding.login("<username>", "<password>"" + "<Securitytoken>");

 

 

I checked the .wsdl file and it is referring to the "https://test.salesforce.com/services/Soap/c/24.0/0DFC00000004hw6" address.

 

With the credentials provided for login method i am able to login to the SalesForce sandbox URL.

Trying to get this thing working for 1 week.

 

But i have another developer account, after downloading enterprise wsdl from that account i was able to sucessfully login and fetch data from salesforce.I used the same approach . Not able to find out the difference.

 

This sandbox account was given to me by my client, i got the security token also from them.

  • Does this involve any security setting to allow API access from different regions?
  • i saw an article which says "You'll need to login with the .test version of the username, or change the username to not have the .test in it." What does this mean? Reference

Can anyone guide me in getting this done? Thanks in advance.

 

Sriram.

 

 

Can we remove,

1) Popular Tag

2) Recent Activity

3) To Contributor

4) Top Content

sections from Library tab? Do we have any access setting for these section in salesforce?

I want only My Library section in Shared Content tab of Library to be displayed.

 

 

Thanks,

Sunil

I am trying to get my company to switch from Unlimited to Enterprise Edition. They are thinking of moving off of Salesforce altogether and I'm hoping if I can get the costs lower they will change their mind. Has anyone done this type of downgrade? Is it hard and are there complications or is it just as simple as flipping a switch?
