Salesforce rest api integration to create a record

Today we will trying to cover the topic Salesforce rest api integration by taking example of two Salesforce systems.

First let's see when to use rest api as we have lot of other Salesforce api.

Rest api is a simple and power webservice based on restfull principles and it use rest resource and HTTP methods to expose functionalities.It supports both XML and JSON .Rest api has light weight request and response frame work and it is good for mobile and web apps.



Let say I have two system as SYSTEM A and another system as SYSTEM B.

What we will doing today is we will try to create a record in SYSTEM B using rest api from SYSTEM A.

REST API WEBSERVICE FROM SYSTEM B:

@RestResource(urlMapping='/getcreateAccount/*')
   global with sharing class getAccount {
     @HttpPost
      global Static string fetchAccount(string Name){
      Account obj=new account();
      obj.name=Name;
      Insert obj;
        
        return 'Success';
      }
   }

CONNECTED APP IMAGE FROM SYSTEM B:

Salesforce api

Note down the Consumer key,Consumer secret(We need to provide it SYSTEM A for authentication purpose along with username,password,security token of user which SYSTEM A will be using for authentication).

APEX CONTROLLER FROM SYSTEM A :

public class restApiClassSalesforceorg1{


private string cKey='XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX';
private string cSecret='XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX';
private string uName='XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX';
private string passwd='Password+SecurityToken';
public static list<resultWrapper> listWrap{get;set;}


public restApiClassSalesforceorg1()
{
listWrap=new list<resultWrapper>();

}



public class responseWrapper{

public string id;
public string access_token;
public string instance_url;

}

public string getRequestToken()
{
string reqBody='grant_type=password&client_id='+cKey+'&client_secret='+cSecret+'&username='+uName+'&password='+passwd;                                      

Http h=new Http();
HttpRequest req=new HttpRequest();
req.setBody(reqBody);
req.setMethod('POST');
req.setEndpoint('https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token');

HttpResponse hresp=h.send(req);
responseWrapper wResp=(responseWrapper) JSON.deserialize(hresp.getBody(),responseWrapper.class);
system.debug('Instance url'+wResp.instance_url);
system.debug('session id'+wResp.access_token);
return wResp.access_token;


}

public void getConList()
{

list<account> accList1=new list<account>();
String accToken;
string responseBody;
string endPoint='https://ap5.salesforce.com/services/apexrest/getcreateAccount';
restApiClassSalesforceorg1 obj=new restApiClassSalesforceorg1();
accToken=obj.getRequestToken();
system.debug('access token'+ accToken);
if(accToken!='')
{
string Jsonstring='{"Name":"Acc testname 1"}';
Http h1=new Http();
HttpRequest req1=new HttpRequest();
req1.setHeader('Authorization','Bearer '+accToken);
req1.setHeader('Content-Type','application/json');
//req1.setHeader('accept','application/json');
req1.setMethod('POST');
req1.setBody(Jsonstring);
req1.setEndpoint(endPoint);
HttpResponse hresp1=h1.send(req1);
system.debug('hresp1'+ hresp1);


}


}


public class resultWrapper{

public string id{get;set;}
public string name{get;set;}


}


}

VISUALFORCE PAGE FROM SYSTEM A TO DISPLAY DATA:

<apex:page controller="restApiClassSalesforceorg1">
<apex:form >
<apex:pageBlock >
 <apex:pageblockButtons >
 <apex:commandButton value="Create a record" action="{!getConList}"/>
 </apex:pageblockButtons>
 </apex:pageBlock>
 </apex:form>
</apex:page>
