I want to get the owner id/ user id of current record.

for this what I know, we have to do 2 things. 1) First we have to fetch record ID from URL by using


2) We can fetch owner ID by using this record ID.

If I am correct then how to fetch record owner ID by using record ID?

Yes you are correct .Just putting amswer into programmatic way

First get the Id in URL parameter and then on page fetch using

Id recId=ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get('id');

Secondly use Select statement and get the ownerId(Assuming object is Account)

 ID ownerId=[Select Id,ownerId from Account where Id=:recId].ownerId


After the comments looks like this has to be dynamic solution

id testid=ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get('id');
String objecttype=testid.getSobjectType().getDescribe().getName();
    Sobject s=(Database.query('Select Id,ownerId from '+objecttype+' where Id=:testid LIMIT 1'));
catch(exception e){
    Id ownerid=(ID)s.get('ownerId');
  • Thank you @Mohith Kumar. Here I am not going to use Account object, because I don't know from which object it will fetch record ID. It'll be decided during run time. I think we have to go for Dynamic SOQl. Correct me If I am wrong. Regards Nov 4, 2013 at 7:55
  • @Rudra_NoVoice Please find the updated response .I have updated the solution to be dynamic.Yes its Dynamic query but with little trick and advanced apex .Welcome to community:) Nov 4, 2013 at 8:29

    As a side note, you need to check to see if OwnerId exists before you attempt to query it. Child records in a master-detail relationship do not manifest an OwnerId field.

  • This is valid code: Id ownerId, recordId = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id'); try { ownerId = database.query('select id, ownerid from '+String.valueof(recordid.getsobjecttype())+' where id = '+string.escapesinglequotes(recordid)).ownerid; } catch(exception e) { }; At the end of the try-catch block, if ownerId != null, then we have a result.

    I actually kind of intended to mean check before querying, but a try-catch block would eliminate the problem anyways. And my code in the prior comment wasn't quite right, I noticed...
