When logging into an org as a System Admin, I receive the following error:

General external object error

The text of the error message: "Developer error in file apex://Order__x at line number -1"

Stack trace error message: "Unfortunately, there was a problem. Please try again. If the problem continues, get in touch with your administrator with the error ID shown here and any other related details. Error ID: 334194590-82559 (116521520)"

Any idea why this error may be being thrown? What does this error mean for an external object? It looks like the Order__x external object is behaving as expected in all other contexts.

Upon refreshing, now the error is no longer appearing, even when logging out and logging back in. I have not made any changes to resolve this error and can no longer reproduce at all.


That message "Error ID: 334194590-82559 (116521520)" is a GACK reference.

It's basically an internal Salesforce error code for something they didn't expect to occur.

The standard way to handle a GACK is to raise a support case. Make sure you include the Error ID clearly and identify it as a GACK.

  • That is says "Developer error in file apex://Order__x at line number -1" makes me think there was some kind of compilation issue. Especially since it isn't occurring on subsequent requests. Jul 9 '18 at 23:02
