Spring 21 – Access Custom Metadata Type Records using SOQL and without Using SOQL

Custom metadata types enable you to create your own setup objects whose records are metadata rather than data. These are typically used to define application configurations that need to be migrated from one environment to another, or packaged and installed.

Rather than building apps from data records in custom objects or custom settings, you can create custom metadata types and add metadata records, with all the manageability that comes with metadata: package, deploy, and upgrade. Querying custom metadata records doesn’t count against SOQL limits.

 

Before Spring 21 release we have the option to access Custom Metadata Type Records only Using SOQL likely below:

Tax allowance

This new tax year, the personal allowance, which is the annual amount of income you can earn without having to pay tax, is rising by 0.5% from £12,500 to £12,570.

Meanwhile, the threshold for paying the higher rate of income tax increases from the current £50,000 to £50,270 a year. These rates are expected to be frozen for the next five years.
