I am trying to fetch contact names from case object using apex class but instead of contact name its giving me contactId. Please help me to fetch Contact Name.

Expected Output: DEBUG|(Case:{Name=SomeName, CaseNumber=00001032, Status=New, Id=5005g000009pWu5AAE}

Actual Output: DEBUG|(Case:{ContactId=0035g000009ofFFAAY, CaseNumber=00001032, Status=New, Id=5005g000009pWu5AAE}

Here is my apex class code:

public with sharing class Report {
    public Report() {


    public static List<Case> fetchRecords(){
        List<Case> caseList = new List<Case>();
        try {
            caseList = [SELECT Contact.Name, CaseNumber, Status  FROM Case];
            return caseList;
        } catch (Exception e) {
            throw new AuraHandledException(e.getMessage());


System.debug(sObject) does not show parent or child relationships, only direct fields. The value is being queried, and is available in memory, but will not be output in a System.debug statement unless you somehow serialize the record:

  • Thanks a lot @sfdcfox. Didn't knew that System.debug does not show parent or child relationships. Just learnt something new from you. :) Jul 22 at 9:27
