I have created a custom button that will load a page to create an opportunity in which few fields needs to be prefilled and it should have a specific RecordType. But the issue is all the fields are getting populated but the record is created with the default Record Type and not the RecordType mentioned. This is the code I am using


I have also tried the below code but nothing seemed to work. It is using the default record type.


Can anybody please help me on this.

  • How did you come up with /new?RecordType=.... as the format for forcing the record type?

  • Can we not update like this? I was using this format to open the page when we click on you and some of the fields will be fetched by default, does recordType data cannot be brought like this? Commented Jul 18, 2022 at 5:34
  • Is the recordtype enabled for your profile? If not, it will revert to the default recordtype. Commented Jul 18, 2022 at 12:01
  • It was enabled but there was something else restricting it. Also I used Vinay approach as well it worked Commented Jul 19, 2022 at 18:21

Here recordTypeId is case sensitive and make sure you use 'recordTypeId' to set default record type value.

  • /lightning/o/Opportunity/new?recordTypeId=0121U000000KDRIQA4&defaultFieldValues=AccountId={!Task.What},Campaign_Member__c={!Task.Campaign_Member__c},CampaignId={!Task.CampaignId__c},ContactId={!Task.Who} Commented Jul 18, 2022 at 6:04
  • It worked for me and record type is being populated, make sure you have access to record type on opportunity and use correct record id (/lightning/o/Opportunity/new?recordTypeId=0122v000001SmZ2AAK&defaultFieldValues= Phone__c={!Account.Phone}, field2,field3 etc.,)
