Can any one please help me solving this,

The below trigger will create an guid(random_string) and it will be passed to an controller and from controller i'm hitting the Post the data to our URL. Which working fine, But when I submitted for "Force.com Security Scanner Results". I'm getting an error.

Query: Async Future Method Inside Loops It is critical to write your Apex code to efficiently handle bulk, that is, many records at a time. This is also true for asynchronous Apex methods (those annotated with the @future keyword). Even though Apex written within an asynchronous method gets its own independent set of higher governor limits, it still has governor limits with respect to the number of @future invocations allowed in a single Apex transaction.

When a trigger executes each invocation may have up to 200 records. So, if 200 or more app__c records were updated in a single transaction the following loop would run 200 times for the first invocation of the trigger.

if (Trigger.isAfter){
    For (app__c dac: Trigger.new){

That's 200 asynchronous calls being made to your future method, that will each result in a single callout.

Instead, build up a collection of all the requests that need to be made and pass it off in a single call to the future method.

Now the problems becomes passing the data the the HTTP Callout. In the ideal world the web service would be modified to work on multiple records at once.

If that isn't possible, you will need to work within the Callout Limits and Limitations.

  • Daniel Ballinger, Thanks for helping. You mean I need to add req.setTimeout(2000); in my controller

  • Increasing the timeout will certainly be part of the modifications required. The other part is that you can't make up to the potential 200 callouts in the future method. You will need to either bulkify the callouts so they can process multiple records at once or build a queuing object and use a batch job to make the API callouts. Feb 17, 2016 at 7:41
