In my test class, I call a function which query Account object with USING SCOPE Mine clause :

Test class :

public class MyClassTest {
    Account a = new Account(name = 'Test');
    a.BillingCity = 'xxx';
    a.OwnerId = userId; // Only used this line if I create an user and use System.runAs(myUser) at the beginning of test class
    insert a;

    MyClass controller = new MyClass();
    System.assertNotEquals(null, controller.myFunction(a.Id));

Class :

public class MyClass {
    public String myFunction(Id i) {
        List<Account> res = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Account WHERE BillingCity = 'xxx' AND Id = :i USING SCOPE Mine];
        String myId;

        for(Account acc : res) {
            // Test coverage never goes inside this loop because 'res' is empty
            myId = (String)acc.Id;

        return myId;

But this query returns no Account !

I try with System.runas(user) {...} without success.

How can I do this ?

  • Yes but the data creation is a critical component of reproduction in this instance.

  • Ok, I simply insert an Account. I edited my post.

    i'm puzzled -- why is the test class using a USING SCOPE Mine ? Why not ownerId = : UserInfo.getUserId() ?

First of all, the syntax used in your controller:

List<Account> res = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Account 
                          WHERE BillingCity = 'xxx' AND Id = :i 
                          USING SCOPE Mine];

is not correct. It should be:

List<Account> res = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Account 
                        USING SCOPE Mine // see https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.soql_sosl.meta/soql_sosl/sforce_api_calls_soql_limits.htm?search_text=using%20scope
                        WHERE BillingCity = 'xxx' AND Id = :i ];

When I tried this in my dev org, the (corrected) SOQL executes just fine, returning the mocked Account.
