  • Hi Natarajan.V,

    You could try with the 'execute' message.

  • You can easily call the workflow using custom ISV button. Create a custom workflow activity and call in workflow step. And perform the operation.

    please see the below post: how to call workflow using javascript.


    Hope this helps.

  • well you can configure your plug in run on update of specific field and then when click on ISV button then update this field and system will automatically call the plug in..

    for e.g.

    your ISV button is called RunButton and field is called runplugin (you can create new field or use any existing field)...

    Now configre your plug in to run on update of this field ( runplugin field).

    put code on RunButton click to just update this field and save record, this will fire the plug in and work for you...

    Hope this helps..

  • Hi,

    If you want to fire a plugin directly, its not possible.

    Some dudeligence need to be done.

    First you can create a record by using the webservice call.

    and at that time the plugin will get fired against the create message.

    If you want the plugin to be fired then update any of the fields in the current record and call the Save() of crmForm, then the update message will get fored, so ypur plugin.
