Test Class for Inbound Email Service

Hi All,
I have written following inbound email service for lead object.
global class LeadServices implements Messaging.InboundEmailHandler
{
    global Messaging.InboundEmailResult handleInboundEmail(Messaging.inboundEmail email, Messaging.InboundEnvelope env)
    {
        Messaging.InboundEmailResult result = new  Messaging.InboundEmailResult();
        string emailbody = email.plaintextbody;
        string emailsubject = email.subject;
        string subToCompare = emailsubject.Substring(emailsubject.indexof('ref :') + 5).trim();
        try
        {
            lead l = [SELECT
                Id, 
                Name, 
                Email
            FROM
                lead
            WHERE
                id  = : subToCompare];
            // Add a new Task to the lead record we just found above.
            Task newTask = new  Task();
            newTask.Description = emailbody;
            newTask.Priority = 'Normal';
            newTask.Status = 'Inbound Email';
            newTask.Subject = emailsubject;
            newTask.IsReminderSet = true;
            newTask.ReminderDateTime = System.now();
            newTask.WhoId = l.Id;
           
            Insert newTask;
        }
        catch(QueryException e)
        {
            System.debug('Issue: ' + e);
        }
        result.success = true;
        return result;

Hi Ramana,

I have gone through your problem please refer bellow code:
Inbound email service Class:-

global class LeadServices implements Messaging.InboundEmailHandler
{
    global Messaging.InboundEmailResult handleInboundEmail(Messaging.inboundEmail email, Messaging.InboundEnvelope env)
        {
            Messaging.InboundEmailResult result = new  Messaging.InboundEmailResult();
            string emailbody = email.plaintextbody;
            string emailsubject = email.subject;
            //string subToCompare = emailsubject.Substring(emailsubject.indexof('ref :') + 5).trim();
            try
            {
                lead l = [SELECT
                Id,
                Name,
                Email
                FROM
                lead];
                
                // Add a new Task to the lead record we just found above.
                Task newTask = new  Task();
                newTask.Description = emailbody;
                newTask.Priority = 'Normal';
                newTask.Status = 'Inbound Email';
                newTask.Subject = emailsubject;
                newTask.IsReminderSet = true;
                newTask.ReminderDateTime = System.now();
                newTask.WhoId = l.Id;

                Insert newTask;
            }
            catch(QueryException e)
            {
                System.debug('Issue: ' + e);
            }
            result.success = true;
            return result;
        }
}


Test class:-

@isTest
public class LeadServices_Test {
    @isTest
    private static void testlead(){

        Messaging.InboundEmail email = new Messaging.InboundEmail() ;
        Messaging.InboundEnvelope env = new Messaging.InboundEnvelope();
        Lead l = new lead(firstName='xyz',
                lastName='Abc',
                Company='Salesforce',
                Email='user@acme.com',
                HasOptedOutOfEmail=false);
        insert l;
        System.debug(l);
        email.subject = 'Create Lead';
        email.fromAddress = 'someaddress@email.com';

        // call the email service class and test it with the data in the testMethod
        LeadServices  testInbound=new LeadServices ();
        testInbound.handleInboundEmail(email, env);

    }

}

Hi Ramana,

Greetings to you!

You are using emailsubject.Substring(emailsubject.indexof('ref :') + 5).trim(); as an Id to get the lead record which is not a valid id. 

Please refer to the below links which might help you further with the above requirement.
