A major new release of SOQL Studio is now available for download. Version 2021.1 includes significant new functionality and multiple bug fixes. As with all of our releases, this one continues our commitment to providing regular enhancements and fixes to SOQL Studio, many of which were customer suggestions, and staying current with Salesforce releases. The two biggest enhancements in this release come at the request of you, our customer.


  • Implemented support for OAuth 2.0. With OAuth, Salesforce manages authentication to the org so that SOQL Studio will not need your logon credentials. In addition to being a more secure authentication mechanism, it also makes SOQL Studio available to those orgs that restrict API logon via username/password. Our blog post introducing OAuth support has additional information about what OAuth is and how it works in SOQL Studio
  • Redesigned the SOQL Editor to support two presentation modes: tabbed view and split view. Tabbed view presents the query editor and query results on separate tabs within the SOQL Editor and has been the standard since SOQL Studio's introduction three years ago. Split view dispenses with the tabs in favor of user-resizable query and results panes within the SOQL Editor, similar to the way SQL Server Management Studio presents query results. The results pane remains hidden until there are results to show. Our SOQL Studio 2021 Preview blog post has a nice introduction to the new editor
  • Overhauled the query Cancel function so that it is now reliable and nearly instantaneous
  • Added the ability to print SOQL Explain results
  • Updated the Quick Find feature of the SOQL Editor with a new version that also includes replace functionality, similar to what's found Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code
  • Refreshed user interface now has a modern Office 2019 look
  • Improved memory management to help ensure the release of allocated resources that are no longer in use
  • Upgraded to API v50 (Winter ‘21)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue introduced in the last release that caused aggregate queries to fail
  • Fixed an issue with the Messages tool window that under certain circumstances caused the application to crash with a null reference exception
  • Fixed an issue that derailed proper syntax highlighting when using an escaped single quote (\') within a quoted string
  • Fixed an issue that prevented count(fieldname) from being highlighted as a function
