Orphan external objects not allowing to create a new external data source
Last updated 2020-10-19 ·Reference W-7989892 ·Reported By 2 users
When there is an orphan external object whose related external data source has been deleted, customers are never able to create a new external data source due to the following error.
Lets say organization has an external object whose related external data source is empty or not specified. and no external data source is defined in the org.
0) Log into the sandbox/production org
1) Create an external Data source (use cross-org connect or odata)
notice, it fails with system.security.NoDataFoundException
Received an error and cannot create a new external data source.
Should create a new external data source without seeing the error.
Currently there is no workaround.
Is it Fixed?
