Similarly one may ask, what are the different types of relationships in Salesforce?
Salesforce provides the following types of relationships that can be established among objects:
- Master-detail relationship.
- Lookup relationship.
- External lookup relationship.
- Indirect lookup relationship.
- Many-to-many relationship (junction object)
- Hierarchical relationship.
Secondly, how many Lookup relationships are there in Salesforce? Each object is allowed to have one or two masters, or up to 8 details. You can have a Total of 40 Relationship fields with a Maximum of 2 Master Detail Relationships. So you can have all 40 as Lookup Relationship fields, 38 Lookup and 2 MD 39 Lookup and 1 MD relationship fields on an object.
what is the difference between lookup and master detail relationship in Salesforce?
While lookup relationships are fairly casual, master-detail relationships are a bit tighter. In this type of relationship, one object is the master and another is the detail. The master object controls certain behaviors of the detail object, like who can view the detail's data.
