Is there a way to call the existing standard action of Lead Convert inside a custom lighting component? I need to show a modal with some validations and if it seems correct by the user, click inside the modal the Convert standard action/button. Thank you!


There is no interface to convert a Lead directly through Lightning Components.

However you can use your Apex controller for that. Here's the example how to convert Lead programmatically (full reference in Apex Developer Guide: Converting Leads):

Lead myLead = new Lead(LastName = 'Fry', Company='Fry And Sons');
insert myLead;

Database.LeadConvert lc = new database.LeadConvert();

LeadStatus convertStatus = [SELECT Id, MasterLabel FROM LeadStatus WHERE IsConverted=true LIMIT 1];

Database.LeadConvertResult lcr = Database.convertLead(lc);
  • Thank you!! I have a question based on your answer, the standard mapping functionality Map Lead Fields for custom fields it's 'fired' when I call convertLead() method? If on setup of lead objet I set x custom field on the lead object to map to x custom field on the oppty object this will work? – Pablo Mar 25 '20 at 14:54
  • @Pablo Yes, the standard Lead Mapping logic should retain here. – Przemysław Tamoń Mar 25 '20 at 14:57
