sforce.apex.execute in Lightning

You are here because your JavaScript buttons that worked in Classic doesn’t work in Lightning.

Let see how you can make it work

Straight to the point


This is your JavaScript button that works in Classic

sforce.apex.execute("JSMMyExecuteClass", "myExecuteMethod", {param1:"Im param1",param2:"Im param2"}); 
window.location = 'https://google.com';

And this is your button working in Lightning


<aura:component implements="force:lightningQuickAction" controller="JSMMyExecuteClass" >
  <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>


  doInit : function(component, event, helper) {
    var action = component.get("c.myExecuteMethodAura");
      "param1": 'Im param1',
      "param2": 'Im param2'
    action.setCallback(this, function(response) {
    var state = response.getState();
    if(state == "SUCCESS" && component.isValid()){
      console.log("success") ;
      var result = response.getReturnValue();
      var urlRedirect = "https://www.google.com/search?q="+result;
      var urlEvent = $A.get("e.force:navigateToURL");
        "url": urlRedirect
      console.error("fail:" + response.getError()[0].message); 

JSMMyExecuteClass (Apex class)

public class JSMMyExecuteClass {
  public String myExecuteMethod(String param1, String param2){
    return 'ok '+param1+' - '+param2;
  public static String myExecuteMethodAura(String param1, String param2){
    return new JSMMyExecuteClass().myExecuteMethod(param1, param2);

The last step is to create a quick action that points to our component and then add it as many layouts you want.
