Business Use case

Cathal Murtagh is working as a System administrator at Universal Containers (UC). A few months ago, she has created a process Getting Started with Salesforce Flow – Part 62 (Auto Assign or Remove Permission Set to Multiple Users) to auto-assign or remove permission set to users based on criteria. It seems like; someone created a new version, which is now not working. She wants to identify the person’s name who last modified the process. 

Automation Champion Approach (I-do):

In the past, I have shared a couple of use cases where we can use Flow or Process Builder to solve the complex business use cases instead of writing Apex code. In this article we will learn who Last Modified Date a Flow.

Let’s take a minute’s pause here and understand Flow and FlowDefinition objects in Salesforce.

Object Name Details
Flow It represents the metadata associated with a flow.
FlowDefinition It represents the flow definition’s description and active flow version number.

Guided Practice (We-do):

There are 8 steps to solve Cathal’s business requirement. We must:

  1. Click Setup.
  2. In the Quick Find box, type Flows.
  3. Select Flows then select View Details and Versions for Scheduled: Auto Add or Remove Permission Set flow.
  4. Now you can check Flow Version, Flow Label, Description, CreatedDate, Type, Status, Run In Mode, API Version for Running the Flow etc.
  5. Check FlowDefinition for Flow URL, API Name, Type, Active Version, Trigger, etc.
