I have been following this article to try and retrieve data for a custom object's related data. Basically, I have a Student__c object, and I have a StudentCourseRelationship__c object. the StudentCourseRelationship__c object has a master-detail lookup to Student__c. What I am attempting to do is write a component that, when on a Student Page, will display all of the student's courses they are related to (yes, I know this is kind of built in, but down the road I will need data that traverses across many relationships).

So, here is what I have in my component's JS file:

import { LightningElement, api, wire} from 'lwc';
import { getRecord, getFieldValue } from 'lightning/uiRecordApi';
import getCourseData from '@salesforce/apex/StudentCourseData.getStudentCourseData';

export default class StudentCourseRelationship extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;

    // COURSES
    @wire(getCourseData, { studentId: '$recordId' }) courseRels;

    get courseCount() {
        return this.courseRels.data;

And here is my APEX code for the getCourseData method:

public with sharing class StudentCourseData {
    public static List<StudentCourseRelationship__c> getStudentCourseData(String studentId) {
        return [SELECT Id, Student__c, Course__c FROM StudentCourseRelationship__c WHERE Student__c = :studentId];

Finally, here is my .html code where the data is displayed:

    <lightning-card title="Courses" icon-name="custom:custom14">
        <div class="slds-m-around_medium">
            <template if:true={courseRels.data}>
                    <template for:each={courseRels.data} for:item="rel">
                        <li key={rel.Id}>{rel.Course__c}</li>
            <template if:false={courseRels.data}>
                <p>NO COURSES TO DISPLAY</p>

This seems to be correct by the link I provided above, but for all students I am getting zero relationships even though I have verified that this particular student I am viewing has 6 StudentCourseRelationship__c relationships..

Is this the proper way to pull data in a web component, or am I doing something wrong that I am not noticing?

  • Is this your exact code? The reason I ask is because I don't see @AuraEnabled annotation on the apex method.

  • Yes, is AuraEnabled required? What is that I guess?

  • Yes it is required, that's a pre-requisite. Take a look at the documentation as how to call the apex methods. Your issue at the first instance seems to be related to that.

  • I was actually typing the answer when you commented :). That's your issue, and once you fix it, it should work.

You're missing @AuraEnabled annotation in your apex method.

For an apex method to be invoked from LWC (or a Lighting Aura Component), you will need to annotate the method with this annotation. You can look for more details on the documentation.

Your method should look like:

public static List<StudentCourseRelationship__c> getStudentCourseData(String studentId) {
