When enabling communities in an org, Salesforce adds in some custom lightning components and controllers to help you customize login and registration. These Apex controllers use an Apex class named Aura to do some redirects. I can't find documentation on this class anywhere (nor is it local to the org). Does anyone know if this class is documented anywhere?

  • Right, that is for the client-side framework. My question is referencing the Apex controllers that make a call to a class named "Aura". I can't find anything Apex related in the documentation. Am I just not looking in the right place? – dsharrison Aug 11 '17 at 15:46

I've seen it the developer console. The auto-complete shows two methods:

redirect(pageReference), as @AH3 pointed out,

and getComponent().

I haven't seen anything documented yet either though.


At this time there seems to be no documentation for the Aura class (System.Aura).

I've tested it and the only method I have available is to do redirects.


It may be a new class to interact more easily with lightning components.
