The Customize Java APIs provide the ability to access metadata in Fields and Objects.

Contents

Field Metadata

addFieldMetaData

Description
Adds Field Metadata
Syntax
Functions.addFieldMetaData(FieldMetaDataBean fmdb);
Return
None

updateFieldMetaData

Description
Updates Field Metadata
Syntax
Functions.updateFieldMetaData(FieldMetaDataBean fmdb);
Return
None

deleteFieldMetaData

Description
Deletes Field Metadata
Syntax
Functions.deleteFieldMetaData(FieldMetaDataBean idBean);

where:

  • idBean - Contains the object ID and field ID for the field metadata to delete.
Return
None

getFieldMetaData

Description
Gets Field Metadata
Syntax
getFieldMetaData(String objectName,String fieldName); 
Return
Field bean metadata
Example
getFieldMetaData("LJObject","field_name"); 

getFieldMetaDataMap

Description
Gets a Field Metadata Map
Syntax
getFieldMetaDataMap(String objectName);
Return
Metadata map for all fields
Example
getFieldMetaDataMap("LJObject");

Payload Examples

Payload examples for the use case: Add Fields Metadata of the specified Field Display Types to an Object.

Considerations
  • The setObjectId() method in FieldMetaDataBean accepts object ID only. (Object name doesn't work.)

Object Metadata

Object metadata is the data that describes an object--it's name, for example, and it's ID.

getObjectMetaData

Description
Retrieves metadata from Custom Objects; not available for Built-in or CRM objects
Syntax
CustomObjectMetaDataBean Functions.getObjectMetaData(String objectName)
      /* where objectName is the Custom Object name */
Example
Functions.debug("Initiate Object Meta Data Retrieval");
CustomObjectMetaDataBean comdb = Functions.getObjectMetaData(String objectName)
Functions.debug("Object Display Title : "+ comdb.getDisplayTitle());

getObjectMetaDataMap

Description
Returns a map of all visible Custom Objects with object_id as the key and the corresponding object's metadata as a value
Syntax
Map Functions.getObjectMetaDataMap()
Example
Functions.debug("Initiate Object Meta Data Retrieval");
Map  comdbCollection = Functions.getObjectMetaDataMap()
for(Map.Entry e:comdbCollection.entrySet())
    {
    CustomObjectMetaDataBean bean = e.getValue();
    Functions.debug("Object ID :" + e.getKey());
    Functions.debug(" Object Display Title:" + bean.getDisplayTitle());
    }

addObjectMetaData

Description
Adds an object and returns the id of the newly created object
Syntax
String Functions.addObjectMetaData(CustomObjectMetaDataBean comdb)
Considerations
  • Object names:
  • Must start with an alphabetic character.
  • May contain only alphanumeric (a-z A-Z 0-9) and underscores (_).
  • May not contain spaces or other characters.
  • Must be 32 characters or less.
Example
Functions.debug("Initiate Add object");
CustomObjectMetaDataBean omdb = new CustomObjectMetaDataBean ();
omdb.setDisplayTitle("JAVA API OBJECT");
omdb.setSingluarDisplayTitle("JAVA API OBJECT");
omdb.setBuiltIn(false);
omdb.setNameColumn("name");
omdb.setWebTab(false);
omdb.setObjectName("API_OBJ");
String new_object_id = Functions.addObjectMetaData(omdb);
Functions.debug("Added an object:"+new_object_id);

updateObjectMetaData

Description
Updates an object and returns the id of the updated object
Syntax
String Functions.updateObjectMetaData(CustomObjectMetaDataBean comdb)
Example
CustomObjectMetaDataBean omdb = Functions.getObjectMetaData("API_OBJ");
omdb.setDisplayTitle("JAPIOBJ");
Functions.updateObjectMetaData(omdb);

deleteObjectMetaData

Description
Deletes an object
Syntax
Functions.deleteObjectMetaData(CustomObjectMetaDataBean comdb)
Example
Functions.deleteObjectMetaData( Functions.getObjectMetaData("API_OBJ"));

getRecordLocator

Get a record locator bean from the specified object, which contains the Key, Lookup, and Search settings,
where:

  • Key - The concatenation of fields that constitutes the Record_Locator#Search_Fields examined by the platform when searching for records.
  • Search - The concatenation of fields that constitutes the Lookup and Search Results fields that are displayed to the user during a search or Lookup.
  • Lookup - The concatenation of fields that constitutes the record identifier, displayed as the value of a Lookup field after a selection has been made.
Syntax
RecordLocatorBean rlb = Functions.getRecordLocator(String objectName);
Parameters
objectName - The object name or identifier.
Returns
RecordLocatorBean
Throws
Exception
Example
public Map testGetLookupRecordLocatorColumns() throws Exception
{
RecordLocatorBean rb =  Functions.getRecordLocator("Students");
    Map<String, String> m = new HashMap<String, String>();
    String lookupString = "";
    for(String s : rb.getLookupColumns())
    {
        lookupString = lookupString + s;
    }
    m.put("lookupColumnsRecordLocator",lookupString);
    return m;
}

updateRecordLocator

Modify an object's Record Locator Settings:

Syntax
String objectId = Functions.updateRecordLocator(RecordLocatorBean rlb);
Parameters
RecordLocatorBean - The object with the values to store.
Returns
A string containing the ID of the updated object
Throws
Exception
Example
public Map testUpdateSearchRecordLocator() throws Exception
{
 RecordLocatorBean rlb = Functions.getRecordLocator("Students");
     Map<String, String> m = new HashMap<String, String> ();
     List<String> looklist = new ArrayList<String>();
     looklist.add("emergency_phone");
     looklist.add("student_name");
     rlb.setSearchColumns(looklist);
     Functions.updateRecordLocator(rlb);

     String lookupString = "";
     for (String s: rlb.getLookupColumns())
     {
         lookupString = lookupString + s;
     }
     m.put("updatedSearchColumnsRecordLocator", lookupString);
     return m;
}
