A Data model is defined as the architectural structured way of storing data in an application. Salesforce platform provides with a standard model which allows you in customising the data models for custom functionality.
The standard data model is configured and accessed in the salesforce area (Org) under the Setup→ “Customize”. If you want to add a custom field to the standard data model, you can add it by customising the data model. By the custom data model creation, you are creating a place to source your data that does not exist before.
The term data model is mentioned, as to create a separation between the data model, UI, and Business logic. Salesforce provides the UI, and Business logic whenever you create a data model, which means a new object or table in the Salesforce Org. The 3 components UI, Data Model and business logic are referred to MVC as the above 3 components are the underlying architecture that Salesforce uses.
Data Modeling: Give your data a structure - fields, objects, and relationships in Salesforce Org.
Object: Object is nothing but a table in DataBase. In Salesforce, the table is defined as:
Note: Objects do not have direct access as “Table” structures in .Net, Java, Oracle etc. Due to security reasons, Salesforce do not provide direct access to the DataBase.
After logging In >> Go To “Setup” >> Build >> Create >> Objects >> click on “New Custom Object”.
Fill in the red coloured Fields or Labels in the screen as shown below in the figure.
Label: “Naukri.com JobForm” ( As our client is Naukri.com as discussed in the earlier topics)
Plural Label: “Naukri.com JobForms” ( It is displayed in the Tab Form on the screen, So it should be named in the [“Plural Format” - which has multiple entities]).
As shown in the below figure. Select “Auto Number” from the “Data Type”(Field) and fill the below fields accordingly.
Display Format: Form-(0), (The number format for identification purpose of individual record).
Starting Number: 1, ( Numbering should start from this ‘1’)
Reach to the bottom of the page and in “Object Creation Options” - Section - Select >> “Launch New Custom Tab Wizard after saving this custom object” >> For “Tab” Creation and Hit the “Save” >> Button.
With the selection of the above “New Custom Wizard”- Button, we need to continue with 3 more steps for custom look of the “Tab” as shown in the figure.
