I am looking to add a custom field that is of type "Lookup" or "Master-Detail" to the Network object. This appears to be missing from the list of objects that can be selected.

choose related object

Is it possible to do this? If not, what is the best way to get around the limitation? Perhaps, adding a text field that contains the NetworkId?


I'm not sure of your use case, but I have traditionally gone with the solution you outlined - a text field that has NetworkId coupled with some before update, before insert and after delete triggers to make sure the id is valid. The other option is to see if Network can relate back to your custom object (or if you need a to-many, to a join custom object)

  • Going with this answer since I don't think it is possible today. Thanks!
