Cannot use Action Picklist Input Parameter in CRM 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a CRM 2013 Action that accepts a Picklist Input parameter to set the value of an OptionSet field. The problem is that there is no way in the CRM Action GUI to specify which attribute the Picklist refers to, so when you use the "Update Entity" dialog to try and set the value of an OptionSet attribute, the GUI says there is no valid Argument field to use as the source data.

    There is no problem if the Picklist is an output parameter. The CRM GUI allows you to "Assign" to it any option set value.

    So either the Parameter definition GUI needs enhancing to allow you to specify the target attribute, or the "Update Entity" dialogs need changing to allow the use of a Picklist argument.
