This function counts the number of items in a list. This is useful for checking the number of values returned when executing a SOQL or SQL Test Step.



{Count(AccountRows)} – If there are two accounts returned, this function will return 2

{Count(AccountRows) > 0} – This can be used in expressions to return true or false (see below)

Using this {Count(AccountRows) > 0} expression, Count can be used to verify that records have been successfully extracted during a SOQL Query.

First, the Account object is queried, and results are placed into AccountRows:

Then the number of results is counted and, if more than one Account result exists, AccountNames is set to true:

Then, the result is asserted to check for the actual value.
