Salesforce Tips & Tricks

  • If you wanted to query ‘accountId, account.name’ fields in a query just specify ‘account.name’ which will retrieve ‘accountId’ automatically.
  • SOQL query can be ORDER BY 32 fields.
  • SOQL/SOSL statements cannot exceed 10,000 characters.
  • SOQL query can’t run more than 120 seconds.
  • For best performance, SOQL queries must be selective, particularly for queries inside of triggers. To avoid long execution times, non-selective SOQL queries may be terminated by the system.

To avoid this error, ensure that the query is selective.
