I can see a tab label "X" in my production org. How can I find the associated object with that tab?

  • What is the behavior that you see when you click this tab? – Mark Pond Dec 12 '13 at 4:02

If you navigate to

Setup -> Create -> Tabs

You will see a list of all the tabs in your org. You can see here if your tab is a

  • custom object tab, in which case you can see which object.
  • Web Tab
  • Visualforce tab

From SF help

Custom Object Tabs display the data of your custom object in a user interface tab. Custom object tabs look and function just like standard tabs.

Custom Web Tabs display any external Web-based application or Web page in a Salesforce tab. You can design Web tabs to include the sidebar or span across the entire page without the sidebar.

Visualforce Tabs display data from a Visualforce page. Visualforce tabs look and function just like standard tabs.

  • HI Ninja, I've tried that method. I still did not see a tab label "X" in Create > Tab. Is there another method? Thanks – Caky Dec 12 '13 at 1:49
  • Can the object be hidden? I've an Admin role in my org. Thanks – Caky Dec 12 '13 at 1:50
  • @Caky perhaps the "x" you are looking for is a standard tab. Those will not show up in the Create > Tab area... – Nathan Williams Dec 12 '13 at 3:16
