related entitites in workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • What are the rules of showing related entities in workflow configurator? Ie I can find there order entity looking from ordered product but it doesn't work in opposite way (there is no ordered product in related entities for order). There is no such problem in Advanced find.

  • Hi


    you are right, in Workflow Configurator you can go 1 level up (only), so if you are on Child entity you can see parent entity, you can not see the parent of parent entity (Like in AdvancedFind).


    if you want to achive this you have to develop\write workflow custom activity .


    As an example you can see http://crm2011sharestep.codeplex.com/

  • Hi Bhautik,

    My explanaition of the issue was not clear. You can see order entity looking from ordered product but you can't see ordered product from order using workflow configurator (the relationship is one, but from one side (ordered product)  you can see related entity (order), from the other side (order) you don't see related entity (ordered product)).
