SELECT Id, Name, (SELECT CountryISOCode__c, Name, Role__c FROM Person__r)
FROM Market__c

returns a row that looks like this:

Id NAME Person__r
a081.. C1 [{"A":"foo", "Name":"P2", "Role__c":"PR4"},{"A":"bar", "Name":"P7", "Role__c":"PR7"}]
a081.. C2 [{"A":"Jam", "Name":"P6", "Role__c":"PR6"},{"A":"Yum", "Name":"P8", "Role__c":"PR5"}]

The values in column Person__r do look like a json array. The field Role__c is a picklist which can be queried like this

SELECT Value, Label, IsActive 
FROM PicklistValueInfo 
WHERE EntityParticle.EntityDefinition.QualifiedApiName = 'Person__c' 
      AND EntityParticle.QualifiedApiName = 'Role__c' 

which returns

Value Label isActive
PR3 Ram false
PR4 Roo true
PR5 Rar true

I want to combine both queries and if possible create pivoted columns for every label for the picklist Role__c (Ram, Roo, Rar).

The final output should look like this

MarketName Ram Roo Rar
C1 2 0 1
C2 2 3 0
C7 0 1 1

For every market (C1, C2, C7) count how many persons (P2, P7, P6, P8) have which role (Ram, Roo, Rar)

Can this be done with SOQL?

You can get something close to this using an Aggregate Query.

Your query would be:

SELECT Market__r.Name, toLabel(Role__c), COUNT(Id) FROM Person__c GROUP BY Market__r.Name, Role__c

(I'm guessing what the lookup/object names are here because you'll need to base the query on the person object not the market object)

Your result would look like:

Market Name Role Count
C1 Ram 2
C1 Rar 1
C2 Ram 2
C2 Roo 3
C7 Roo 1
C7 Rar 1
  • The result works but it returns the columns Market.Name, Role.Value, Count(Id) example C1, PR4, 1. Is it possible from the picklist Role__c to display the Role__c.Label (Ram, Rar, Roo) instead of Role__c.Value (PR3, PR4, PR5)?

  • You can do toLabel(Role__c) to display the label instead of the value. (Just change it in the SELECT and not in the GROUP BY)

    This does the trick. Thanks a lot.
