Creating Opportunity and OpportunityContactRole in Apex Trigger

public with sharing class InsertPreOpportunity {
	public static void handleTrigger(List<Form__c> newForms) 
		// check if this is a demo set form

		Map<Id, Opportunity> contact_With_pre_Opptys_to_Insert = new Map<Id, Opportunity>();

		for(Form__c form: newForms)

			if(form.RecordType.Name == 'Demo Set Form')
				Opportunity preOppty = new Opportunity(
					OwnerId			= form.AE_Owner__c,
					AccountId	 	= form.Account__c,
					SDR_Owner__c 	= form.SDR_Owner__c,
					SDR_Notes__C 	= form.SDR_Notes__c,
					LinkedIn_URL__c = form.LinkedIn_URL__c,
					ERP_Systems__c 	= form.ERP_Systems__c,
					RecordTypeId	= '0126A000000yudDQAQ',
					Estimated_Annual_Spend__c = form.Estimated_Annual_Spend__c

				contact_With_pre_Opptys_to_Insert.put(form.Contact__c, preOppty);


		for(ID con: contact_With_pre_Opptys_to_Insert.keySet())
			Opportunity opp = contact_With_pre_Opptys_to_Insert.get(con) ;

			OpportunityContactRole oppConRole = new OpportunityContactRole(
				OpportunityId 	= opp.Id,
				ContactId		= con,
				isPrimary		= true



Hi, Do I need to insert the opportunities before I insert opportunitycontactroles? Or will the code above work.

Hi Matt,

Yes first you have to insert the opportunity in database there after only you can acessa the opportunity Id to insert the opportunity contact role record.

Better write the trigger in Opportunity object at after insert transaction for insert the opportunity contact role record
