PLATFORM DEVELOPER I Certification Maintenance – Work with the New Apex Security Settings (Spring ’19)


You can complete this from the following trailhead link,

What we need to achieve today

In this exercise, you’ll begin with a code that contains manual field- and object-level security checks before a SOQL query. You will then refactor the code into a simplified implementation that relies on WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED to handle field- and object-level security checks.

  • Create the Secret Key custom text field on the Contact object as specified in the Get Ready for the Hands-on Challenge section above.
  • Create a new Apex class named SecureApexRest.
  • Copy and paste the SecureApexRest code provided above. This code is already secured with the conventional field- and object-level access checks.
  • Add the WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED clause to the SOQL query on line 13 in the code provided. This will make the manual Schema.SObjectType checks are redundant.
  • Refactor the code to remove the redundant object and field level access checks.
  • Maintain existing behavior by ensuring that failing results are checked in a SecurityException, rather than any other type of exception. This will require catching the System.QueryException that WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED throws and throwing a new SecurityException.

Step 1. Create the Secret Key custom field on Contact Object.

Setup -> Object Manager -> Contact -> Fields & Relationships -> New

Create a Custom Field, Name -> Secret Key and Length of 255

Click Next and Uncheck the visible for Standard Users.

Uncheck the option to make it visible for Standard Users.

Step 2. Create a new Apex Class -> SecureApexRest
