Hi,  If I define a global variable within  the global batch class that implements Batchable and then I update that variable in the global execute method. Why do the values for this global variable become null or empty when I try to use the variable in the global Finish method? The global variable in my case is a and object defined as List<Id> expireSoonList
and when I add values to this List of Ids and add a system debug file after the update - to show the size of this list - in method Execute , I get a non-zero value.
But when I check on the size of this list - by adding system.debug -  in the Finish method,  the global ID List is empty so I get a 0 shown for the system debug instruction . Here's the code snippet   Thanks much:
global class BatchMozoSubscriptionRenewObject implements Database.Batchable<sObject> {
    // global variables
	global List<Id> expireSoonList;
    global String query;
   global List<Id> Temp = new List<Id>();
    global String[] finishSubscriberEmailList;
    // Not a sandbox exception definition
	global class NotSandboxException extends Exception {} 
    global database.querylocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC)
        if(query == null) 
            query = 
                'Select Id, RecordType.Name, Status__c, ' 
                + 'Date_Inactive__c, Registration_Level__c ' 
                + 'From Account '
                + 'Where ( Status__c = \'Added\' and RecordType.Name in (\'Canada Church\' , \'US Organization\') ) ' 
           		+ 'And Registration_Level__c <> \'R0\' And Registration_Level__c <> null and Date_Inactive__c >= today';
        system.debug('<<QUERY STRING>> '+query);
        return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC, List<sObject> scope)
       	Integer currentMonth= 0;
        Integer expirationMonth = 0;
		Integer difference  = 0;
        date currentDate = date.today();
        for(sObject s : scope)
            Account a = (Account)s;
            expirationMonth = (a.Date_Inactive__c).month();
            currentMonth = currentDate.month();
            system.debug('<<Expire Date>> '+a.Date_Inactive__c+' <<Current Date>> '+currentDate);
            //daysBetween(Date) Returns the number of days between the Date that called the method 
            //If Date that calls the method occurs after the futuer Date, return value is negative.
            Integer numberOfDaysBetween = currentDate.daysBetween(a.Date_Inactive__c);
            if(numberOfDaysBetween <= 30 & numberOfDaysBetween >= 0){
                //upsert expireSoonList;
                system.debug('<< EXECUTE ---> EXPIRE SOON LIST>> '+expireSoonList.size());
            if(currentDate <= a.Date_Inactive__c){
                if(currentMonth <= expirationMonth){
					difference = (expirationMonth - currentMonth);                   	
                else{ // e.g. expiration month = January and current month = September
               		expirationMonth =  expirationMonth + 12;
					difference = (expirationMonth - currentMonth);                    	
               	} //ELSE
                // Check to see if we within 30 days
                if(difference <= 1){
                	if(currentDate.day() >= (a.Date_Inactive__c).day()){
        }//FOR LOOp
        Temp = expireSoonList;
   global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC)
   {	system.debug('<<EXPIRE SOON LIST>> '+Temp.size());
       if(expireSoonList.size()> 0){
        	//Get Affiliation from Accounts in order to get the Affliated Ontacts who have Awana Roles that are COmmanders or Secretaries and that have email.
         	Map<Id,npe5__Affiliation__c> getContacts = new Map<Id,npe5__Affiliation__c>([Select Id,npe5__Contact__c from npe5__Affiliation__c where npe5__Organization__c in: expireSoonList and Awana_Role__c in ('Commander','Club Secretary')]); 
            //Now extract the Contact  Emails into one list and send the email
     		List<Contact> mozoContacts = [Select Email from Contact where Email <> null and Id in: getContacts.keyset()];
            //Now create a list of emails to send once. 
        	String emailList = '';
     		for(Contact c: mozoContacts){
             	emailList = emailList + c.Email+'\t';
           	String emails = emailList.replaceAll('[\t ]*','');
            //Since Email's setToAddress uses a List we need to convert it using tabs then commans
            List<String> finishEmailList = emails.split(',');
            Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();        
            mail.setSenderDisplayName('Mozo Subscription Renewal');
       		mail.setSubject('Mozo Subscription Renewal');
            mail.setPlainTextBody('Your subscription is about to expire within 30 days.\nPlease renew your subscription as soon as possible in order to maintain your Mozo registration. Thank you.\n');
           	//send bulk email
            Messaging.SendEmailResult[] result = Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] { mail });


Hi All,

Thank you for taking the time to read my question.


I have a salesprocess for my opportunity stage values. I have the businessprocess id, and can query it via the api. However, I can not find a way to filter the picklist values for return to a visualforce page to return only those that are part of the business process.

I have seen lots of questions on the forums related to this, but NOT ONE has a satisfactory answer. The businessprocess object DOES NOT return picklist values, nor does it look like it should. There was one post about the metadata, but that seems to be a different api that I can't access via my custom controller.


Can anyone help?

Thank you!
