    Hi ankit,

    you may use following code.


    Map<String, Schema.SObjectType> m = Schema.getGlobalDescribe();
    Schema.SObjectType s = m.get(‘Contact’);
    Schema.DescribeSObjectResult r = s.getDescribe();
    Map<String,Schema.SObjectField> fields = r.fields.getMap();

    for(String field : fields.keyset()) {
    Schema.DescribeFieldResult describeResult = fields.get(field).getDescribe();
    if (describeResult.isCreateable() && !describeResult.isNillable() && !describeResult.isDefaultedOnCreate()) {

    hope it helps 🙂

    Hi Ankit,

    here is no direct property available in Apex dynamic API to represent the required field. However there is another way to know about it.
    If any field have below three properties then it is mandatory field.

    • If it is Creatable
    • If it is not nillable and
    • If it does not have any default value

    Yo can use the below code for finding it out

    Map<String, Schema.SObjectType> m = Schema.getGlobalDescribe() ;
    Schema.SObjectType s = m.get(‘sObjectName’) ; //give your object name in place of sObjectName
    Schema.DescribeSObjectResult r = s.getDescribe() ;
    Map<String,Schema.SObjectField> fields = r.fields.getMap() ;

    for(String f : fields.keyset())
    Schema.DescribeFieldResult desribeResult = fields.get(f).getDescribe();
    if( desribeResult.isCreateable() && !desribeResult.isNillable() && !desribeResult.isDefaultedOnCreate() )
    //This is mandatory / required field
    system.debug(‘///’ + f );

    Hope this helps you more.

    Schema.DescribeSObjectResult r = systemObjectType.getDescribe();
    Map<String,Schema.SObjectField> M = r.fields.getMap();
    for(String fieldName : M.keySet())
    Schema.SObjectField field = M.get(fieldName);
    Schema.DescribeFieldResult F = field.getDescribe();
    //A nillable field can have empty content. A isNillable Boolean non-nillable field must have a value for the object to be //created or saved.
    // if F.isNillable() is false then field is mandatory
    Boolean isFieldreq = F.isNillable()
