I have some triggers which are showing compilation errors. These triggers are installed as part of a Salesforce managed package. How can I recompile those triggers or solve this error?

  • Welcome to SFSE! Are you getting any error messages explaining why they can't compile?

  • Please post the full error in your question. I assume the dependent class that is invalid is the one in the managed package? When you say "update my user object" do you mean add fields or change data on an existing user?

Navigate to Setup->Develop->Apex Classes. There is a link near the top of the page called "Compile all Classes". According to the hover on the link it will compile your managed package classes.

Compiles all of your organization's Apex classes. Managed package classes can be compiled only by clicking this link. You must compile managed package classes before you can view them and run their test methods on the Apex Test Execution page.
