  • Bookmarklet to Retrieve All Used Fields in the Class

    The idea for this project happened when after building a service layer logic, I had to add around 50 fields into a SOQL query. I could've done this manually—parsed the code using grep/Sed and Regex, but I chose to use Salesforce's built-in features to give me a list of field IDs and then use metadata API to retrieve all field developer names, ready to be copy/pasted into selector layer code.
