Google Chrome Extension: Salesforce.com ID Converter

August 2, 2010 Appirio

The Saleforce UI displays 15 digit, case-sensitive IDs for records. However, for Windows machines you will need to use a case-safe version of the ID for data migration, API calls and such. It’s not hard to generate these 18 digits IDs but it does take some time. I’ve been working on a lot of Google Gadgets and Chrome extensions lately so I thought I would throw together a Chrome extension (sorry Firefox users!) to quickly generated an 18 digit Salesforce.com ID. Thanks to Ron Hess for the conversion script!

Building Chrome extensions is fairly simple with a little bit of HTML and Javascript. The Google Code site has some sample “Hello World” code as well as an extension video to get you going.

You can download the extension here.
