I have validation rule on Account Shipping Address.
AND ( ShippingCountry = "United States" || ShippingCountry = "Canada", isBlank(ShippingState) )
The standard Lead Mapping feature of Salesforce Maps the lead Address to the Account Billing Address.
When Converting Lead to Account, the validation rule fires. As a result, the lead conversion throws an error 'Shipping State Required'
I don't want to disable the Lead Setting 'Require Validation for Converted Leads' because that would mean all validation rules will be skipped.
After researching, One idea I came across here was Bypassing the Shipping Address Validation error by creating two Custom checkboxes. One on lead, one on Account. However this requires me to now create a flow to undo the check box. Which is fine, however, this errors out the flow that exists on the Account, which basically Autopopulate the Account Name based on the Account Address.State.
Does anyone have other suggestions or ideas to bypass the validation rule for lead conversion to Account ?
