I just want to know what is SObjectScriptRow! All I can find about it is this question.

I'm building an invocable method to be used from a process, where I have one input parameter: a list of an sObject type.

Here is the code:

@InvocableMethod(label='Update fees' description='It takes a list of parent fees and updates the related child fees')
global static void ParentFeeUpdateChildFees(List<Parent_Fee__c> parentFees) {

    List<Child_Fee__c> childFees = [SELECT Parent_Fee__c, Fee_Percentage__c, Charge__c FROM Child_Fee__c WHERE Parent_Fee__c IN :parentFees];
    Map<Id,Parent_Fee__c> parentFeeMap = new Map<Id,Parent_Fee__c>(parentFees);

    Parent_Fee__c parentFee;
    for (Child_Fee__c childFee : childFees){                
        parentFee = parentFeeMap.get(childFee.Parent_Fee__c);
        childFee.Fee_Percentage__c = parentFee.Fee_Percentage__c;
        childFee.Charge__c = parentFee.Charge__c;
    update childFees;

And I'm getting the following error

FLOW_ELEMENT_ERROR An Apex error occurred: System.UnexpectedException: Bad rightOperand type: got SObjectScriptRow: operator e dataType 1

So, I think the error is being thrown at the :parentFees meaning I can't query by the parameter because I'm actually getting a list of SObjectScriptRow instead of a list of sObject.

I can simply change the method to receive a list of Ids and this will work, but It will add an extra query to get the Parent Fees which I want to avoid.

I would appreciate any input in this, or maybe I'm mistaken. Thanks!

    The clause WHERE Parent_Fee__c IN :parentFees is expecting a list of ids to be in parentFees. Since you have a list of sObjects, it's never going to work. However, if you extract the parentFee Id from the list of parentFees in a loop prior to the query, you can put it in a set and query that. Jan 26, 2016 at 17:07
  • Hi @CasparHarmer, you can actually query by a list of sObjects. Just try the following List<Account> accounts = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Account limit 10]; List<Contact> contacts = [SELECT Name FROM Contact WHERE AccountId IN :accounts]; and you'll see that you get a list of contacts. I know I have several workarounds to get this to work (like putting the ids in a set), but I just want to know what is SObjectScriptRow! and why am I getting that.

    @AdrianLarson that'd work just fine, but that's another workaround and wouldn't answer my question.

    You have answered this question as well as it is possible to answer without insider knowledge. Basically, it represents an SObject that has been passed in through a Process Builder flow. While there are some people on this network with some such knowledge, your best course of action is to open a ticket with support.

    I am receiving the same issue with my process builder which invokes a apex. Is there any workaround for this now ?

Ran into the same issue and resolved by changing my method parameter from List<SObject> to List<Id>, worked like a charm
