   <aura:set attribute="actions">
        <lightning:button label="New" onClick="{!c.newContact}" />

-------------below is my component controller-----------------------------

newContact: function(component, event, helper){
    var createContact = $A.get("e.force.createRecord");
        'entityApiName': 'Contact',
        'defaultfieldValues': {
            'AccountId': component.get("v.recordId")
  • Are you testing this component in app? or you added this component in account detail page? – Ratan Paul Jul 2 '18 at 7:42

    One problem is that defaultfieldValues should be defaultFieldValues as Aura/JavaScript is case sensitive. There is a small chance that is causing the problem. – Keith C Jul 2 '18 at 7:43
  • i have tried Capital F in defaultFieldValues... but it didn't worked – cloudZigZag Jul 2 '18 at 9:11
  • @ratan i have added component on Record page.. i know in app it will not work because accountid(recordId) was not there – cloudZigZag Jul 2 '18 at 9:12
  • @KeithC if i use defaultFieldValues then it show "Uncaught Action failed: c:MyContactComp$controller$newContact [Cannot read property 'setParams' of undefined]" – cloudZigZag Jul 2 '18 at 9:33
