Salesforce week 14
Sun, Feb 19th 2017 7:33p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Short week as I had Thursday and Friday off - or PTO as we call vacation. But a great week. Monday and Tuesday I spent on-site in Stockholm and Monday night I finally got my act together and took the final certification exam of my onboarding and I'm very happy to report that I passed. Yay!! I now have passed all the 5 certifications I needed to pass. #happyDays It was also my first week of being billable at the customer which was great. Wednesday was spent in the home office. All good stuff!

Mon, Feb 13th 2017 7:44p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Last week I spent two days at the customer site in Stockholm and 3 days at home in the home office. I think. Cannot really remember. Maybe I was in the office one of the days. Oh well :) It's starting to become normal to go to Stockholm and family life and work life is starting to work out. It seems like it will work for us. Customer project wise I almost finished the Lightning Component I've been working on for the customer and even made small changes to also make it work in Salesforce1. With

Salesforce for Newcomers - Introduction to orgs, sandboxes, API login and Salesforce security
Fri, Feb 10th 2017 8:24a   Mikkel Heisterberg
As I venture into the Salesforce Universe myself there are many areas that I would have wished had been easier to figure out. So what better than remedying that with a series of blog posts. Maybe there will be one post and maybe more. We'll see... This first instalment is on some of the basics in Salesforce namely the org, sandboxes and some of the security implications of logging in. I'm pretty technical so some of this will be from a technical angle so please forgive me and stay with me. "

Lightning Components as Quick Actions in Salesforce1 and padding
Wed, Feb 8th 2017 7:05p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Since Winter 17 we have had the option of using a Using Lightning Component as a Quick Action. In the Lightning Experience in a desktop browser the component is shown as a popup (actually a lightbox) in the UI and in Salesforce1 (the Salesforce mobile app) it's more of a modal fullscreen dialog. All this is great. Only thing you have to do is to make your component implement force:lightningQuickAction (all declaratively) and it can be added as a Quick Action. The resulting lightbox / dialog wil

Salesforce Platform Cache

Stumbled over the Salesforce Platform Cache the other day and just discovered this nice Trailhead Module on it (Platform Cache Basics). Worth 30 minutes if you're developing on the platform.

Salesforce week 12
Mon, Feb 6th 2017 8:31a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Week 12 brought me to Stockholm for 3 days, had 1 day in our new shiny Salesforce office in Hellerup (closer to Copenhagen center) and 1 day working from home. I spent most of the week getting up to speed on Salesforce Lightning and developing mockups for a custom component for the customer. All in all it was a great week where I learned a lot and made significant contribution to the customer project although I'm not officially assigned and billable yet (I'm shadowing). Salesforce Lightning

First week on "the job" brought me to the customer I'll most likely be assigned to in Stockholm. I spent Tuesday to Thursday there and have already delivered something that will go into production in a couple of weeks. Both exciting and scary... The week was basically spent learning about the project, the phases, deliverables and a whole slew of new terminology. All good stuff. Nothing much else to report for now besides Stockholm being a nice city. What did I learn Some customers actually

Salesforce username/password OAuth flow against a sandbox
Tue, Jan 31st 2017 8:29a   Mikkel Heisterberg
We had issues today because our OAuth password flow wouldn't work against one of our sandboxes although the code worked against production. Instead we got this error: {"error":"invalid_grant","error_description":"authentication failure"} After Googling and finding this thread it turned out that when using the username/password flow against a sandbox you have to either relax IP restrictions for login or authenticate against test.salesforce.com instead of login.salesforce.com (which of

Arlanda Express app
Mon, Jan 30th 2017 10:23a   Mikkel Heisterberg
These weeks - and probably through the end of the year - I'm going quite a lot to Stockholm so like any respectable geek I'm trying my best to make my travels more productive and easier to manage. Flying is easy - booking is all online and trips, boarding cards and receipts are managed entirely mobile. Easy. Next was hotels - also easy using existing apps except for the actual check in process. This Monday I found the Arlanda Express app. Excellent!! Tickets are bought and paid in the app u

Quick CLI aliases for Salesforce instance info
Wed, Jan 25th 2017 9:50p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Today when at a customer we were trying to figure out the release versions the various sandboxes and development environments and compare this info with the version of the production instance. Of course all this is available from status.salesforce.com but clicking around got a bit tedious so I whipped up a quick set of bash aliases for the Terminal. Since the output is also available as JSON it was pretty easy. First I grabbed the jq JSON parser for bash and then I wrote 4 aliases for bash: sf_
