Need help retrieving all the partners from an opportunity given its id. This is what I thought it be :

List<Opportunity> temp = [Select (Select Role from OpportunityPartners)
From Opportunity where id='12345567'];

Not working though...and not sure what's wrong either

  • Are you getting any sort of error? Aug 23, 2016 at 1:34
  • Just saying the syntax is incorrect Aug 23, 2016 at 1:44
  • Hmm, try adding at least one field to the outer query - say Id - [Select Id, (Select Role from OpportunityPartners) From Opportunity where id='12345567'] Aug 23, 2016 at 1:45

Here is a script you may find useful to run through Execute Anonymous:

for (ChildRelationship relation : SObjectType.Opportunity.getChildRelationships())
    String name = relation.getRelationshipName();
    if (name != null && name.contains('Partner'))
        system.debug(name + ' (' + relation.getChildSObject() + ')');

This script yields three relationships:

AccountPartners (AccountPartner)
OpportunityPartnersFrom (OpportunityPartner)
Partners (Partner)

It seems to me you want door #2, which would make your query:

SELECT (SELECT Role FROM OpportunityPartnersFrom) FROM Opportunity

Change your query to:

List<Opportunity> temp = [Select (Select Role from OpportunityPartnersFrom)
From Opportunity where id='12345567'];

From the Opportunity context that's it's API Name


If you do not need any fields from the Opportunity then you can query the OpportunityPartners object directly:

List< OpportunityPartner > temp = [Select Role from OpportunityPartner
Where OpportunityID ='12345567'];

Otherwise you will need to use the correct API Name of the relationship

List<Opportunity> temp = [Select (Select Role from OpportunityPartnersFrom)
From Opportunity where id='12345567'];
  • Shouldn't the sObject in your first query be OpportunityPartner, not OpportunityPartners?

  • @AdrianLarson (And Eric) Definitely a dead heat on this one! (I like the alternative solution too) Aug 23, 2016 at 21:26
  • How would I add an Opportunity Partner object to a specific opportunity? Assuming I have the id of the opportunity Aug 23, 2016 at 21:40
