Does Salesforce support passing an array or list of big objects as a parameter for an AuraEnabled controller method? In other words can I pass from a lightning component javascript controller an array of big objects directly to AuraEnabled controller method to save into the big object store? Or do I have to pass in JSON as a string an materialize an array or list on the server side?

Ofcourse Yes. You are able to send list and additional attributes like this.

var action = component.get('c.filterSave') action.setParams({ "statement":component.get('v.fullList'), "name":component.find('saveFilterName').get('v.value'), "type":component.find('saveFilterType').get('v.value'), "ObjectType":component.find('saveFilterObjectType').get('v.value') });

And You get the List and attributes on AuraEnabled controller like this.

@AuraEnabled public static Filter__c filterSave(List<sObject> statement,String type,String name,String ObjectType){ system.debug(statement); system.debug(name); system.debug(type); return null; }

  • Have you tried with a big object? I know you can with an sobject but I get an unreadable error if I use a custom big object. I had to first serialize it as JSON string then pass the string as the argument and finally deserialize it on the server side.

  • The curious thing is that you can pass a big object (i.e. __b type object) as a parameter but array or list of big objects fail.
