Business Process and Support Process In Changesets Salesforce

The BusinessProcess metadata type enables you to display different picklist values for users based on their profile. It extends the Metadata metadata type and inherits its fullName field.
Multiple business processes allow you to track separate sales, support, and lead life cycles. A sales, support, lead, or solution process is assigned to a record type. The record type determines the user profiles that are associated with the business process. For more information, see “ Managing Multiple Business Processes ” in the Salesforce online help.

So now the query is how to deploy this Business Process and Support process Via the changesets in SFDC?
If you see the component list you wont see the BusinessProcess in components to Add to the changeset.This is pretty weird as the metadata API for same is exposed in Salesforce .
Mnaually creating hundreds of process in each Instance can be time consuming and Tedious and Using Eclipse or Ant for this for an admin or Business analyst can be a huge exercise and error prone .

So again the same question how to Add these BusinessProcess In Changeset?
The answer is simple .We all have Add Dependency Button in changeset build 
https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=changesets_outbound_dependencies.htm&language=en_US
Here we will discover we have BusinessProcess to Select and Add to the Changeset.Its little weird that it does not appear as Parent Component during change set build .
May the force be with you All :)

TLS 1.0 has been disabled For Sandbox - Salesforce

Salesforce has finally disabled TLS 1.0 in sandboxes .This is in preparation for disablement later in 2017 for PRODUCTION instances .

Now this would have not impacted your integrations in PRODUCTION org but if your integration is broken in your sandbox ,this means you have only few months to sort this and fix before this affects your integration for PROD live users .
Before we deep drive on how to possibly fix this and work with your external systems to figure solution ,lets first understand what is TLS and why did SFDC moved to 1.x and had to disable TLS 1.0
TLS 1.0 Explained























TLS 1.1 Improvements 
Added protection against cipher-block chaining (CBC) attacks. Support for IANA registration of parameters.

Clearly TLS 1.1 is more secure(Compared to 1.0) and protects salesforce resources against CBC attacks .
Identify if this change broke anything .The things that can be affected in your instances are as below Web requests to Salesforce URLs that require authenticationWeb requests to the login pag…

Opening Modal Using Lightning Component Framework of SFDC

One of my friend from India threw a challenge .The challenge was to open a modal by using latest and greatest lightning components framework and modals design from SLDS .For the love of community I thought of sharing the entire code base that I did .

So here we start ..

Business Use Case - Need a handy SalesLeader board component that can be used to display the Sales revenue generated by each sales rep for current year in the order of decreasing total revenue .On click of the tile ,we will show detail opportunity list aggregating the revenue .

The component can be dragged in lightning design experience or in App builder lightning Page .

Invoking Apex Callout From Process Builder

Process builder is GA in Spring 15 and one of the queries I came across was around how to invoke apex callouts from Process builder .

Before process builder came we had two common approaches of calling webservice 

1)We have outbound messages as one of the Actions for workflows.This works if other party implements the WSDL that is generated once Outbound messaging is defined with appropriate end point .

2)Most of times future method invoked through triggers allowed to do apex callouts and invoke external web service provided the future method is annotated with @future(callout=true).This provides lot of flexibility and one of the best approaches .

3)Flow triggers was in BETA and this was also one of the ways we could invoke callouts provided the Flow implements process plugin .To understand in detail how to implement process plugin refer to the below example

The purpose of this blogpost is to demonstrate the new possibility of invoking apex callout through Process Builder 

I tried initi…
