for(Integer i=0;i<results.size();i++){
    if (!results.get(i).isSuccess()){
        Database.Error err = results.get(i).getErrors().get(0);
        System.debug('Error - '+err.getMessage() + '\nStatus Code : '+err.getStatusCode()+'\n Fields : '+err.getFields());

218 : What causes Concurrent Apex limit error in Salesforce ?
Ans : If Synchronous Apex runs more than 5 sec it considered as long running job. And we have limit that only 10 long running job can execute at a time. So, whenever 11th Synchronous apex tries to execute, it gets Concurrent Apex limit error. Read more here about Concurrent Request Limits

219. What is custom metadata type ?
Ans :
Custom metadata was introduced generally in Summer 15 release. Before Custom metadata type, we were using Custom settings of List type. Problem with custom setting was that, during migration or in packages, data were not migrated. We had to either use data loader or some API to create initial data. However, if we package custom metadata type or migrate it, data will also be migrated along with it.

220. Which component in Salesforce ends with “__mdt” and “__s”?
Ans :
Custom metadata types ends with “__mdt” (meta data type), just like custom object or custom fields ends with “__c”.

When we create Geolocation field in Salesforce, lets say by name “location__c” then internally Salesforce creates subfields with extension “__s“. In this case “location_latitude__s” and “location_longitude__s”.

    So what custom fields end __s ?

    I think my answer to “While creating JavaScript button to execute anonymous apex, what should you keep in mind ?” would be why are you creating a javascript button to execute anonymous apex in the first place when it won’t work in lightning UI / mobile etc…

      That’s nice suggestion, I will add it. Scenario for sometimes we need JS button to execute apex – We have some utility method which performs operation from Scheduler however, lets say user is on record and they want to force that logic to run. we can simply call existing Apex method from JS so that user doesn’t need to wait for schedule time, something like correcting Apex based sharing or syncing data with external webservice. Understand that Salesforce team is removing AJAX button from lightning coz of security issue but its really very useful in many scenarios.

        Yup they even removed javascript from flow when it first came out. Personally I would try everything I could not to use a javascript button. Using process builder to call apex, publisher action… but have to say there is still a bit of a gap. I’m considering at the moment maybe even creating lightning components within Visualforce on the page layout. At least then its “Lightning ready”.
