I am receiving 0% coverage on the below trigger which seems simple enough.

Can anyone please advise here? My unit test is below.

trigger CannotDeleteAccount on Account (before delete){

    for  (Account a: trigger.old){
        if (a.Current_User_Profile__c != 'System Administrator' && a.Client_Code__c != null){
            a.adderror('Account is synced and cannot be deleted or merged.');

Unit Test:

public class TestCannotDeleteAccount {

   public void myTestMethod(){

       Profile p = [SELECT Id FROM Profile WHERE Name='Standard User'];

       User u = new User(Alias = 'standt', Email='[email protected]', EmailEncodingKey='UTF-8', LastName='Testing', LanguageLocaleKey='en_US', LocaleSidKey='en_US', ProfileId = p.Id, TimeZoneSidKey='America/Los_Angeles', UserName='[email protected]');
       insert u;


           SIC_Code__c sic = new SIC_Code__c(Name = 'Education',SIC_Code__c = '12345');

           insert sic;

           Account a = new Account(Name = 'Test', Legal_Entity__c = 'Corporation', Description = 'Test', Phone = '2125551234',
   Primary_City__c ='NY',Primary_Country__c = 'United States', Primary_State_Province__c = 'NY', Primary_Street__c = '32 Old Slip',          Primary_Zip_Postal_Code__c = '10001',
   Rating = 'Cold',Industry = 'Education', SIC_Code_Nmae__c = sic.id, Client_Code__c = '12345');

           insert a;

               Delete a;
           catch(Exception e) 
               system.assertEquals('Account is synced to billing system and cannot be deleted or merged.', e.getMessage());
  • What is the formula in the field Current_User_Profile__c? Commented Jul 9, 2015 at 18:11

    Nathan is right, actually Current_User_Profile__c field you specify in account trigger which you didn't set in your Test class for account record. Commented Jul 9, 2015 at 18:33
  • Actually, Client_Code__c is the only one that needs to be set per the trigger logic. Which the poster has done. But if you are setting Current_User_Profile__c on insert of the account, it may be getting set to "System Administrator"

  • @SFDCCrystalCo are you manually entering the Current_User_Profile__c value on insert/update? If so, I'd recommend replacing that field with a formula field that references the user info: $Profile.Name (the better idea being $Profile.DeveloperName since you could theoretically change the name over time)...

I think you are getting 0% coverage because your method is not specified as a TestMethod, which makes it not run when you schedule the test. You need to change the method declaration to the following:

public TestMethod void myTestMethod() {
  • Thanks Kirill, I've made that notation. Code coverage is now > 75%. Thank you.
