Unable to register custom workflow activity on MS CRM 2015 Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to register custom workflow activity using plugin registration tool on MS CRM 2015 Online.

    Error says that 'No Plugin have been selected from list. Please select atleast one and try again'

    In short my assembly is not considered as custom workflow activity.

    I am giving my code let me know, If any thing is wrong.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Activities;
    using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk;
    using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Workflow;

    namespace Training.SamplePlugin
        public class SampleCustomworkflow : CodeActivity
            public InArgument<DateTime> BirthDate { get; set; }

            public OutArgument<DateTime> NextBirthDay { get; set; }

            protected override void Execute(CodeActivityContext executionContext)
                //Create the tracing service
                ITracingService tracingService = executionContext.GetExtension<ITracingService>();

                //Create the context
                IWorkflowContext context = executionContext.GetExtension<IWorkflowContext>();
                IOrganizationServiceFactory serviceFactory = executionContext.GetExtension<IOrganizationServiceFactory>();
                IOrganizationService service = serviceFactory.CreateOrganizationService(context.UserId);

                if (context.PrimaryEntityName.ToLowerInvariant() == "contact")
                    DateTime birthDate = BirthDate.Get<DateTime>(executionContext);

                    DateTime nextBirthDate = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.AddYears(1).Year, birthDate.Month, birthDate.Day);

                    //NextBirthDay.Set(executionContext, nextBirthDate);

                    Entity newContact = new Entity();
                    newContact.LogicalName = "contact";
                    newContact.Id = context.PrimaryEntityId;
                    newContact["new_nextbirthday"] = nextBirthDate;



    If code is correct then has somebody faced this kind of issue earlier, what is resolution.

  • You need to select the assembly before clicking register button. You will see a checkbox.

  • The other thing to check is the .Net version of the System.Activities assembly that you reference. For Crm Online it must be at least 4.0.3, and may need to be 4.5 for Crm 2015 Online
