On the Account record page, I want to refresh my LWC page whenever I create or edit a related contact record. My LWC page is fetching list records from apex not using LDS.

I couldn't think of any way to achieve the same so I thought of wrapping my LWC in the aura and use the below aura code.

<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForRecordHome">
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}" />

    <aura:dependency resource="markup://force:editRecord" type="EVENT" />

    <aura:handler event="force:refreshView" action="{!c.doInit}" />


doInit: function (component, event, helper) {
    console.log('from aura');

I get a console log when I edit the account record but don't get anything when I edit the contact record from the related list of account.

is there any way I can detect if a record is created or updated from the related list either in lwc or aura?

  • Yes, you can use the Change Data Capture and Streaming APIs. Jul 26, 2021 at 16:14
  • Yes I think of streaming API too, but don’t want to use them as they comes with daily limit of 50k or 10k

You should be able to run your imperative Apex call from a getRecord adapter:

import { LightningElement, api, wire } from 'lwc';
import { getRecord } from 'lightning/uiRecordApi';
import { refreshApex } from '@salesforce/apex';
import myMethod from '@salesforce/apex/MyClass.myMethod';

export default class MyLWC extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;
    @wire(getRecord, { recordId: '$recordId', fields: ['Account.Id'] })
    getRecordData({ error, data }) {
        if (this.recordId) {

imperativeApexFunction() {
    myMethod({ recordId: this.recordId })
        .then( result => {
            this.result = result;
            // Handle result
        .catch( error => {
            // Handle error

The @wire getRecord adapter is intrinsically connected to the LDS, and will automatically run when a change is saved to the parent record, or a related child record, causing your Apex method to rerun as well

The recordId is not always set by default on page load, and it is helpful to include a check to see if there is a recordId before running your Apex method to prevent null errors

  • Thank you for your answer, unfortunately, it didn't work.

  • I've made an edit to include a refreshApex call - does that make any difference?

  • This didn't work either.

  • Is your LWC a component on the Account Record Page? Or is it on a separate page? I just tested this as a component on the Account page and it worked in my dev org
