Iterate map values in Salesforce Lightning component

Screen Shot 2018-09-15 at 10.06.19 PM.png

aura:iteration iterates over a collection of items and renders the body of the tag for each item.

Data changes in the collection are rerendered automatically on the page. aura:iteration supports iterations containing components that have server-side dependencies or that can be created exclusively on the client-side.

Attribute Name Type Description
body ComponentDefRef[] Required. Template to use when creating components for each iteration. You can put any markup in the body. A ComponentDefRef[] stores the metadata of the component instances to create on each iteration, and each instance is then stored in realbody.
indexVar String The variable name to use for the index of each item inside the iteration.
items List Required. The collection of data to iterate over.
var String Required. The variable name to use for each item inside the iteration.

So, Let me explain with an example:

Here you go…..

  • Create an component controller class(IterateController)
  • In this apex class ,you have @AuraEnabled , fetchMapvalues() method which return type is Map type.
  • first created a new map called MapTest .

Apex Class:

public class IterateController {
public static Map < String, String > fetchMapvalues() {
Map < String, String > MapTest = new Map < String, String >();
MapTest.put(‘Test1’, ‘Jaya’);
MapTest.put(‘Test2’, ‘Krishna’);
MapTest.put(‘Test3’, ‘WordPress’);
MapTest.put(‘Test4’, ‘Com’);
/ return map
return MapTest;



I have used two interfaces while creating component without also you can implement. It makes  lightning components work in a Salesforce community, both on the desktop and SF1 app


Provides interfaces that are specific to Lightning Pages and the Lightning App Builder.
Provides interfaces that are specific to Lightning Experience and the Salesforce app.

<aura:component implements=”force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes” access=”global” controller=”IterateController”>
<ui:button label=”Fetch” press=”{!c.fetch}”/>
<aura:attribute name=”ShowTest” type=”Boolean” default=”false”/>
<aura:attribute name=”customers” type=”List” />
<aura:renderIf isTrue=”{!v.ShowTest}”>
<aura:iteration items=”{!v.customers}” var=”cus” indexVar=”key”>
{!cus.key} – {!cus.value}<br/><br/>



fetch : function(component, event, helper) {
var custNo = component.get(“v.custNo”);
var action = component.get(“c.fetchMapvalues”);
action.setCallback(this, function(response) {
var state = response.getState();
if (state === “SUCCESS”) {
var custs = [];
var conts = response.getReturnValue();
for ( var key in conts ) {
custs.push({value:conts[key], key:key});
component.set(“v.customers”, custs);
component.set(“v.ShowTest”, true);

Create APP:

<aura:application >
