  • Question

  • Hi

    I am struggling to make the on-demand workflow working in JavaScript in CRM 2013. Can you please help ?

    it was working fine in CRM 2011.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Emerson,

    Can you share the JavaScript code you are using to trigger the workflow? The message "ExecuteWorkflowRequest" to invoke such operation hasn't changed, have a look at this SDK article:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.crm.sdk.messages.executeworkflowrequest.aspx

    Please let me know if I'm missing something or what you are trying to do is actually different.

    Regards

  • Hi,

       There is no change. However here is the code snippet

    function RunWorkflow() { 
         var _return = window.confirm('Are you want to execute workflow.');
         if (_return) {
             var url = Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl();
             var entityId = Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId();
             var workflowId = '541B45C9-3F88-4448-9690-2D4A365C3172';
             var OrgServicePath = "/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc/web";
             url = url + OrgServicePath;
             var request;
             request = "<s:Envelope xmlns:s=\"http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/\">" +
                           "<s:Body>" +
                             "<Execute xmlns=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts/Services\" xmlns:i=\"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance\">" +

             req.open("POST", url, true)
             // Responses will return XML. It isn't possible to return JSON.
             req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/xml, text/xml, */*");

     function assignResponse(req) {
         if (req.readyState == 4) {
             if (req.status == 200) {
                 alert('successfully executed the workflow');
             }
         }
     }
