Search Groups

Search Groups are basically used to define the type of fields in which you can search that text.

Search in Specific Fields:

  • All Fields (By Default)
  • Name Fields
  • Email Fields
  • Phone Fields
  • Sidebar Fields

Returning

If we want to return texts from a particular object then we use returning keyword.

Ex:

List<List<sObject>> results = [FIND ‘Univ*’ IN NAME FIELDS RETURNING Account, Contact];

List<Account> accounts = (List<Account>)results[0];

List<Contact> contacts = (List<Contact>)results[1];

Return Specified Fields

 If we want to search text in a particular field, we are going to use search group.

Find {contact} IN (searchgroup)

  • All Fields (By Default)
  • Name Fields
  • Email Fields
  • Phone Fields

Find {contact} IN (searchgroup) returning objects & fields.

List<List<sObject>> results = [FIND ‘Univ*’ IN NAME FIELDS RETURNING

Account(Name, BillingCountry), Contact(FirstName, LastName)];

List<Account> accounts = (List<Account>)results[0];

system.debug(accounts[0].Name);

Note: Return Type of SOSL is list of list of sObjects which is parent class of all Objects.

Note: In Apex use ‘ ’ instead of { }.
