  • Hi Madhu,

    We did some thing like this before:

    1. Set up an automated bulk deletion job to delete a certain custom entity record every month.

    2. Create a plugin that triggers every time that custom entity record gets deleted.

    3. Insert update Contact statements on that plugin.

    Hope that helps,
