Want to only Update certain columns via UpdateDataset action RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an external app using a datagrid that pulls records from custom entities. It allows a user to update some of the cells and save the updated data back to CRM.

    The issue is the dataset needs to retrieve several columns worth of data that are not editable in the application.  The app then looks for the dataset where changes have been made by using the DataRowState.Modified

    It then updates those records. Problem is that it makes updates to all of the columns and thus CRM behaves as if updates happened on all of the columns.  Some of the columns have other business rules around them (ie workflow triggers, plugins etc).

    Looking for a way to indicate to CRM that only the 3 columns that are actually editable by the users in this app are changes.
