100% Test code coverage for multiple dependent apex HTTP callouts without creating a mock class

Hello Trailblazers,

Welcome to the 5th tutorial in Simplifying the Callouts in Salesforce Tutorial Series. In this tutorial, we're going to Create a Test Class for Multiple Dependent Apex HTTP Callouts in a single transaction Without Creating a Mock Class. This is a Video-Only Tutorial Series. So, I am giving you a summary of the tutorial below and you can learn in detail by watching the video at the end of the blog.

Note:- This tutorial is using resources from previous tutorial. So, in case, you want to implement the same example on your own, make sure to have a look at the previous tutorial once.

Remember our OrgConnectService class from the previous tutorial ? In this tutorial, we're going to create a test class for that. Just to give a brief, our OrgConnectService class has a single method named:- createAccountAndContact() which is performing 3 dependent callouts using HTTPCalloutFramework. The first callout is responsible to create an Account in the connected org using standard API. The second callout will create a contact and link that contact with the account that was created in the previous callout and the third callout is going to query this contact and account from linked org. You can have a look at that class here.

Now, let's have a look at the test class below:-

As you can see above, we have 4 methods in this test class but we'll concentrate in detail on 1st method only as it's covering positive scenarios and is responsible for 76% code coverage. The rest of 3 methods are covering the negative scenarios and are similar. In createAccountAndContactTest() method, we're first of all Creating Individual Mocks for each callout that we're going to perform from the service class. Then, we created an instance of HTTPCalloutServiceMultiMock named as:- multiMock and we added all 3 individual mocks to this multi-mock using addCalloutMock() method.

This method takes the endpoint URL as the first parameter and the individual mock in the second parameter. To set the endpoint URL properly, we created an instance of HTTPCalloutService class named as destinationOrgService by passing the custom metadata name in constructor as we've done in previous tutorials. Finally, we set the multi mock using our Test.setMock() method in which we passed HTTPCalloutMock.class in the first parameter which is the type and in the second parameter we passed our multiMock instance.

Then we simply called our createAccountAndContact() method and passed the required parameters and it automatically used our multi mock setup to get the fake responses that we've set in individual mocks according to the URL it is hitting. Finally, we checked the returnValueMap we're getting from the method to make sure that the callout is successful.

Let's discuss one method with a negative scenario too. In createAccountAndContactTestWrongResponseAccount() method, you can see that I intentionally passed the QUERY_SUCCESS_CODE in the mock just because I want to cover the scenario when my response code from account callout is not 201. As I am testing negative scenario for first request now, I don't need to create a multi mock because I'll be getting a response code as 200 (set using QUERY_SUCCESS_CODE) during test run (first callout for account creation where expected response code is 201) and it'll return an error without executing further code.

In another method createAccountAndContactTestWrongResponseContact(), I am checking negative scenario for second callout. Because of this, I created a multi-mock where in accountMock I passed in CREATE_SUCCESS_CODE as I want this request to be successful. Whereas, in contactMock I passed in QUERY_SUCCESS_CODE as I want this request to be failed and finally asserted the ERROR_CODE and CONTACT_ERROR_MESSAGE for this request.
