I have created a schedulable apex that gets the leads that have been last modified for more than 3 days and perform an operation. But for my test class, i want to insert some test data... But the test data will have lastmodified date always today. So the query when i run the test class will not return results. How could i implement a solution to insert those test data and make the last modified date more than 3 so that query includes those records and pass the test ?
There are multiple ways.
- Quick and dirty: do an
ifon the query and return today's records if
is running test, return
3 days agootherwise. (Be careful with timezone differences, and tests running at around mid-night)
- Using Test.loadData()
- Using JSON.deserialize()
some more guided steps are given on this post
I personally like option 2, as it allows you to easily maintain Test data and be able to have a quick look at it, but I understand that playing with recordTypes might be a challenge.
