I have to delete a single record based on id but I got

error bad id 2 Array ( [0] => stdClass Object ( [errors] => Array ( [0] => stdClass Object ( [message] => bad id 2 [statusCode] => MALFORMED_ID ) ) [id] => [success] => ) )

<?php
    require_once('userAuth.php');

    require_once ('soapclient/SforcePartnerClient.php');

    $mySforceConnection = new SforcePartnerClient();
    $mySforceConnection->createConnection("PartnerWSDL.xml");
    $mySforceConnection->login(USERNAME, PASSWORD.SECURITY_TOKEN);
    $ids=array();
    $id=$_GET['id'];
    array_push($ids, $id);
    print_r($deleteResult);
    $deleteResult = $mySforceConnection->delete($ids);
?>

  • Well, what was the Id value you passed the API? Was it in fact a Malformed ID?

    '2' is not a valid Salesforce 15 or 18-character Id. Are you trying to use an External Id field? Would you please edit your question to provide more context?

The delete() SOAP API call does not accept external Ids. It requires valid Salesforce Ids.

To delete a record based on its External Id, you need to first perform a query() to locate the Id(s) for the record(s) with that External Id value, then pass those Ids to delete().
