I am trying to update some older test code to remove seeallData=true. I am getting a page error testing a quote controller extension that creates a new quote.

System.AssertException: Assertion Failed: No error message must be displayed(ApexPages.Message["Quoting cannot proceed with missing or inactive Pricing Type/Pricebook."]): Expected: true, Actual: false

Here are snippets of the code which mostly I inherited and am working to clean-up :-)

Opportunity was created in a setup method using the standard pricebook id.

quote = new Quote(Name='test quote', OpportunityId=opp.Id, pricebook2id=Test.getStandardPricebookId());
        ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().put('oppId', opp.Id);      
        stdCont = new ApexPages.Standardcontroller(quote);
        contExt = new NewQuoteQuoteContExt(stdCont);
        System.assertEquals(true, contExt.isValid, 'No error message must be displayed' +  Apexpages.getMessages());
  • (1) +1 for getting rid of seeAllData=true; would everyone at SFSE be so good. (2) The error message might be a custom message that your code or Validation rule generates as 'Pricing Type' is not a SFDC concept AFAIK. Perhaps something else (custom setting, custom object row) needs mocking that seeAllData=false exposed (3) Eric has a worthwhile idea too – cropredy Dec 9 '15 at 1:25
  • Thanks crop1645! good suggestions - I did check for Vrules - but will look closer. what seems odd to me is that in general you can create quotes without a pricebook in cases where the parent opp does not yet have products so no pricebook. Also the developer who built this test seems to have created a VF page just for the test which is not used elsewhere - this doesn't seem like a best-practice to me but I am not well versed with VF/Controllers more experienced with Apex trigger code and batch Apex... – debraSF Dec 9 '15 at 16:07
  • @debraSF the vf thing is odd – Eric Dec 9 '15 at 16:10
  • Did you scan the source code and metadata to look for the message string 'Pricing Type/Pricebook' ? – cropredy Dec 9 '15 at 17:06

Maybe the Standard Pricebook inactive?

if so try adding this to the testSetup or beginning of your test method or where you set up the data:

PriceBook2 stdPb = New PriceBook2(id=test.getStandardPriceBookID(), isActive = true);
update stdPb;

  • thanks Eric. I did double check the price book is active - added some debug statements to the test code. But will try your suggestion to create a pricebook explicitly for the test as this seems like a better practice anyway - not to rely on any real Org data as much as possible. – debraSF Dec 9 '15 at 16:08

After quite of bit of testing I was able to resolve the failing test issue with a simple change to the Test class API version - changing the API version from 27 to 35 resolved all test failures.

  • excellent -- I'm surprised the test class even compiled if it was at V27 since Test.getStandardPricebookId() didn't show up until V31 – cropredy Dec 10 '15 at 23:42
