I'm trying to convert a lead to a contact, the lead has the same email than another contact, but I want to create a new contact. when I try to convert the lead, I got an error 'DUPLICATES_DETECTED : A contact with the same email address exists. Do you want to continue'.
And the lead is not converted.
It seems that the conversion is done with
Database.LeadConvert lc = new database.LeadConvert(); //some parameters are set here Database.LeadConvertResult lcr = Database.convertLead(lc);
when I have to bypass duplicates when I'm trying to do an insert, I use something like that :
Database.DMLOptions dml = new Database.DMLOptions(); dml.DuplicateRuleHeader.AllowSave = true; Databsae.SaveResult sr2 = Database.insert(account, dml);
But in the case of a lead conversion I don't know if it is possible. I know there is a checkbox in the parameters of the lead in the admin part of salesforce, but this option does not do what I want, so I can't use that. I just want to bypass the duplicates.
