Account Hierarchy Link in Lightning Experience.


Account hierarchies display accounts related via parent account field.

We can see the account hierarchy link on the account detail page in salesforce classic user-interface.


In lightning experience, it is available through quick action button.


But we can also develop a lightning component that will show the account hierarchy link and we can place this component on the detail page.


<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForRecordHome,force:hasRecordId">
<div class="slds-section slds-is-open">
<h3 class="slds-section__title">
<button aria-controls="expando-unique-id" aria-expanded="true" class="slds-button slds-section__title-action">
<lightning:icon iconName="utility:switch" alternativeText="" size="x-small" />
<span class="slds-truncate" title="Section Title"> &nbsp;Account Hierarchy Link</span>
<div aria-hidden="false" class="slds-section__content" id="expando-unique-id">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a onclick="{!c.navigateToAccountHierarchy}">View Account Hierarchy</a>


navigateToAccountHierarchy: function(cmp, event, helper) {
var acctId = cmp.get('v.recordId');
var evt = $A.get("e.force:navigateToComponent");
componentDef: "sfa:hierarchyFullView",
componentAttributes: {
recordId: acctId,
sObjectName: "Account"
