Using Federated Search, we can search for content outside Salesforce. Federated Search utilizes Open Search Document behind the scene. Open Search was coined by Jeff Bezos (CEO – Amazon) in March 2005.Open Search is a collection of technologies & standards that allows publishing of results to be utilized by Search Engines.
For Demo purpose, I have enabled my website compatible with Open Search at below URL
There are tons of useful SFDX commands available to help automate Salesforce deployment. However one of most important aspect of Salesforce DX is capability of spinning org within few minutes with features enabled like Person Account, Communities etc.
There could be times, where these commands might not be sufficient. I recently cam across such scenario where I wanted to install manage package for quick capability check.
Scanned through documentation, Stack Exchange and spent lots of time figuring out on how to automate package installation. There are many commands available to install second generation package but not manage package itself. Then I came across marty chang’s github repository with instruction.
It’s time to jump into water. In this blog post, I would be creating Simple Lightning Web Component (LWC). This LWC Component would be able to get value from flow, pass value to flow, navigate to Next screen and hookup into flow validation engine to restrict next page navigation if there is error in LWC input.
Few months back, I wrote an article on how pub sub model can be used to communicate between Lightning Web Components. In that blog post, we used external library to pass event from child to Lightning Web Components.
Lightning Message Service
In Winter 20, Salesforce released Lightning Message Service which can be used to exchange data between Visualforce, Aura Component and Lightning Web Components. Unlike previous process, we don’t need to import any external library like pub or sub.
In this blog post, I would be creating Visualforce, Aura Component and Lightning Message Service and exchanging message between all of them using Lightning Message Service.
Recently , I inherited an Org with huge customization , which enqueue 100+ Batch Jobs in few scenario. Now, don’t ask me why ?
I remember, few years back, Salesforce had limit of 5 Apex Batch that can be executed at a time, but we had expectation and demand !!! Salesforce introduced Flex queue and we can have 100 Batch apex waiting to be executed, still we are not happy. After all, human is wanting animal.
If you enjoy watching video then you might enjoy below video where I conducted Live coding explaining basics of Lightning Web Component.
In this post, we are going to Show loading image on initial load of LWC. In background we would be calling Apex class to take decision if loading image should be hided or redirect user to some other page.
