How to convert Customers to Vendors in User Event script?

edited Feb 28, 2023 9:43PM in Ask A Guru 12 comments

Hello Gurus,

I'm trying to transform customer to vendor record using the record.transform API in the UserEvent script, here is my code snippet:

        const afterSubmit = (scriptContext) => {
                scriptContext.type === scriptContext.UserEventType.CREATE
                scriptContext.type === scriptContext.UserEventType.EDIT
            ) {

                    try {
                        const vendorRec = record.transform({
                            fromType: record.Type.CUSTOMER,
                            fromId: scriptContext.newRecord.id,
                            toType: record.Type.VENDOR

                    } catch (e) {
                            title: 'Customer to Vendor UE',
                            details: `Unable to convert customer to vendor ${e.message}`


But I'm getting in the script execution log:

Unable to convert customer to vendor: You may only change the name from the CustJob version of this record.

Howdy, Stranger!
