Deleting Apex Classes / Apex Triggers from Production using Workbench

This is a rare scenario which we might face when not using any IDE or Source Control as part of the Salesforce Development.

In order to Delete Apex Classes / Apex Triggers from Production directly using Workbench, Follow the steps from this post and complete your task efficiently.

  1. Open Notepad
  2. Copy the below text and save it as “package.xml” (All files).
    (Update the Version number accordingly)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2008/04/metadata">
<version>50.0</version>
</Package>

3. Create another file, copy the below text and save it as “destructiveClasses.xml” (All files).
(Update the Version number accordingly)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2008/04/metadata">
<types>
        <members>Class1</members>
	<members>Class2</members>	
	<name>ApexClass</name>
</types>
<types>
        <members>Trigger1</members>
	<members>Trigger2</members>	
	<name>ApexTrigger</name>
</types>
<version>50.0</version>
</Package>

The above file is based on assumption that you want to delete 2 Apex Classes and 2 Apex Triggers. Adjust based on your requirement.

Note: File names should be as mentioned in Point 2 and Point 3

4. Create a new folder with Name: “deleteClasses” and Drag & Drop the above 2 files.

5. Open the folder and Select those 2 files > Right Click and Select “Send To Compressed Folder

6. Name the Compressed folder as “package.zip

7. Open Workbench > Login with Org Credentials

8. Click on Migrate Tab and Choose Deploy

9. After clicking on Deploy
Select Check Only (For Validation before deployment)
Rollback On error
Single Package
RunLocalTests

10. If the validation is Success, Uncheck the “Check only” checkbox and continue the deployment.

How to resolve? This page has an error: Sorry to Interrupt

This page has an error. You might just need to refresh it. AuraClientService.postProcess: error in processing [Maximum call stack size exceeded].

As per the document, it is recommended to use different names for the client side and server side methods/actions.

Use unique names for client-side and server-side actions in a component. A JavaScript function (client-side action) with the same name as a server-side action (Apex method) can lead to hard-to-debug issues.

So all you need to do here is, change your client-side controller’s method getAccountRecords to something like getAccountRecordsData.

Deleting Related Records

The delete operation supports cascading deletions. If you delete a parent object, you delete its children automatically, as long as each child record can be deleted.

For example, deleting the account you created earlier (SFDC Account) will delete its related contact too.
Execute this snippet in the Anonymous Apex window of the Developer Console.

Account[] queriedAccounts = [
SELECT Id
FROM Account 
WHERE Name='SFDC Account'
];
delete queriedAccounts;

Check the accounts and contacts in your org.
You’ll see that both the account and its related contact were deleted.

Reset Password from Developer Console

There are instances where Reset Password option gives trouble and we do not receive the Email Link to reset the password.

Here is the best solution to directly reset the password from Developer Console itself..

Open Execute Anonymous Window and run the below command:

System.setPassword(UserInfo.getUserId(), ‘YourNewPassword’);

This should help in resetting the password instantly.

Algorithm to generate the unique id in salesforce using Apex

There might be scenarios where we as a developer needs to generate random unique ID’s to be used for external integrations in Apex.

Here is a simple method which generates the unique code everytime.


public static String getUUID()
{
        Blob b = Crypto.GenerateAESKey(128);
        String h = EncodingUtil.ConvertTohex(b);
        String guid = h.SubString(0,8)+ '-' + h.SubString(8,12) + '-' + h.SubString(12,16) + '-' + h.SubString(16,20) + '-' + h.substring(20);
        system.debug(guid);
        return guid;
    }
