Language agnostic Salesforce Apex unit test

I was doing some work with packaging on Salesforce and used the dreamhouse-lwc repo as a foundation. When I was building package versions the Apex unit tests were failing as the SOQL queries is using WITH SECURITY_ENFORCED and the user running the queries did not have the right access. The solution was to update the unit test to create a user and assign the dreamhouse Permission Set but to create a user you need to set a Profile. Which one to pick? Easy – use the “Standard User” Profile which is easily accessible by SOQL:

SELECT Id FROM Profile WHERE Name='Standard User' LIMIT 1

This code failed however as the Profile couldn’t be found. It turned out to be because the scratch org created was in Danish so the Profile is called “Standard Bruger” instead. This could be solved by setting the language of the scratch org by using the language key in config/project-scratch-def.json but the repo maintainers didn’t want that. A more flexible and still language agnostic way was to query more intelligently for the Profile. The below SOQL query achieves the same result as above but without setting the org language.

SELECT Name, Id
FROM Profile
WHERE UserType = 'Standard' AND PermissionsPrivacyDataAccess = false AND PermissionsSubmitMacrosAllowed = true AND PermissionsMassInlineEdit = true LIMIT 1
