  • If I understood your question correctly. Just give triggering message as Update.

    Specify attributes to trigger only on those field update.

  • I'm not sure what do you mean by manual import.

    With import functionlaity in CRM, if mappings are done with reference to GUID, then there will be an update operation there. Else in all other cases it will be a create operation.

    Plug-in will trigger with any of the operation (provided if correct details are given).

    Please elaborate for further assistance.

  • Thriveni,

    If you are importing records, in background there will be Create/Update happens on records.

    To answer your question, Yes Plugins will be triggered on import. 

    Please specify like above Correct Entity and Attributes.

    Thank you,
