Updates: According to this existing question, there seems to be indeed a known issue with retrieving some application and tab details using DescribeTabsetResult methods.

The answer in that question mentions workaround via SOQL:

First query in AppDefinition and filter by your application developer name and get the application DurableId

SELECT Description,DeveloperName,DurableId,Label 
FROM AppDefinition 
WHERE DeveloperName = 'YourAppDeveloperNameHere'

Then use the app DurableId to query for the app's tabs in a second SOQL on AppTabMember

SELECT AppDefinitionId,SortOrder,TabDefinitionId, TabDefinition.Name,TabDefinition.Label
FROM AppTabMember 
WHERE AppDefinition.DurableId = '06mxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' 

TabDefinition.Name returns developer name of the tab

TabDefinition.Label returns the label of the tab

TabDefinitionId may also return tab name, if it matches with a standard object or standard tab like report or dashboard




  • I know above Apex code to get the tabs particular app but in that DescribeTabsetResult method by default it taking sales application only.it not accepting any other application name.so,please help me on this. Thank You.

  • @Rabbani You are right. DescribeTabsetResult seems to have some limitations for some apps, I've found a similar question mentioning a workaround via SOQL, more details on my revised answer. Hope this helps
