I have created a user without userrole in my testclass if I run this in my sandbox my testclass gives 100% coverage. When I try to deploy this to production it gives me 0% coverage as I figured out there is a bug in the Napili template and says user needs to have a role.

I am trying to add a role to my user and get the issue with mixed dml which I read some examples of here. I cant figure out how to use @future if the User needs a contact Id.


private class AddContactTest{
    public static testMethod void testFunction(){                
        //Create account
        Account acc = new Account(
            name = 'TestAccount'
        insert acc ;

        //Create contact for the account, which will enable partner portal for account
        contact con = new Contact(
            firstName = 'Test',
            lastname = 'TestLastname',
            accountId = acc.Id,
            email = '[email protected]'
         insert con ; 

        //Create user for the contact
        Profile profile = [SELECT Id FROM Profile WHERE Name = 'Partner Community User' Limit 1];
        UserRole ur = [SELECT Id FROM UserRole Where name = 'Organisatie Partner Partner Gebruiker' Limit 1];
        User user1 = new User(
            username = '[email protected]',
            //contactId = con.Id,
            profileId = profile.Id,
            alias = 'test123',
            email = '[email protected]',
            emailEncodingKey = 'UTF-8',
            lastName = 'Tester',
            communityNickname = 'test12345',
            timeZoneSidKey = 'America/Los_Angeles',
            localeSidKey = 'en_US',
            languageLocaleKey = 'en_US',
            UserRoleId = ur.id

            Account acc1 = new Account(Name='TestAccount');
            insert acc1;
            list<Contact> listContact=new list<Contact>();
            for(Integer i=0;i<50;i++){
                Contact con1=new Contact();
                con1.LastName = i+'Contact';
                con1.AccountId = acc1.id;
                con1.email = 'email'+i+'@test.nl';
            System.AssertNotEquals(Null,[SELECT id FROM Contact]);

You should not need to specify the UserRole, but you do need to include contactId = con.Id when creating user1 so it will be properly linked to the portal contact / account. The system will automatically set UserRole as long as you set the ProfileId to a partner community profile.

Also - the owner of the account must have a role, so you'll need assign a role to your own user. See Creating a Community User via Apex from a Contact

  • I tried this as you can see the contactId is commented out. If I try this(your) solution I get the following error in production: UNKNOWN_EXCEPTION, portal users cannot own partner accounts: []

  • Ah that is a tricky part of Salesforce -- the account's owner must have a role, so you need to set a role for your own username. Commented Feb 19, 2018 at 19:35
