How to create records from Apex Restful Service in Salesforce

By | January 17, 2022

In this blog, we will learn how to use Apex Restful service to create salesforce records. We will use Workbench to call the apex restful service to perform this procedure. 

Step 1. Firstly, Login to the Workbench by using your salesforce org. For instance, use this link to login into Workbench


Now, select the Environment and API version of your Org, then Click on the Login with Salesforce, as you can see in the above image. After that, you get one login screen for salesforce org. After that, just provide your Salesforce credentials and click on login as shown below image.


Now it will ask for “Allow Access”, click on “Allow”.

  • Firstly, after Login Select Utilise -> Rest Explorer.
  • Secondly, select Post and put this in the path box (/services/apexrest).
  • Further, now provide the body to create records and click on Execute button as shown in the below image.

For example, to create a record in our salesforce org, we have to handle the request with the help of the apex class, as given below.

global with sharing class  CreateAccountWithRest {
    global static String CreateAccount() 
        RestRequest     request    = RestContext.request;
        RestResponse    response   = RestContext.response;         
        TestAccountwrapper wrpData = new TestAccountwrapper(); 
        wrpData = (TestAccountwrapper)System.JSON.deserialize(request.requestBody.toString(), TestAccountwrapper.class); 
        System.JSONGenerator js = JSON.createGenerator(true);
            Account acc = new Account();
            acc.Name =; 
            insert acc; 
            js.writeStringField('Status', 'Success');
            js.writeIdField('Id', acc.Id);
             catch(Exception e){ 
            js.writeStringField('Status', 'Error');
        	String result = js.getAsString();
        	return result; 
    global class TestAccountwrapper{
        global TestAccountwrapper(){}
    	global String Name;  
    	global Integer Phone;  
    	global String Website;    

As a result, the above class will get the request and create Record with the given condition. To clarify it will return the Id of the Record created, as shown in the below image.
