I want to create a custom exception. In this exception, I want to make a constructor which take one string arguments and append in getMessage .How to accomplish this.

public class TimelineException extends Exception{

  private String message;

    public override String getMessage(){

Create your exception class which would extend salesforce Exception class.

public class CommonException extends Exception {}

Use this as an exception class

try {

    throw new CommonException('Test Common Exception');

} catch(CommonException ex) {



console output:

09:18:55:059 USER_DEBUG [4]|DEBUG|Test Common Exception
