CRM 2011 Error: Entity role must be specified for reflexive relationship RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to associate the N:N relationship (Self referential) records in plugin. Example: Accounts to Accounts.

    I am getting an exception of "Entity role must be specified for reflexive relationship".

    Here is my code:

    AssociateRequest associateRequest = new AssociateRequest();
    associateRequest.Target = new EntityReference("iba_bc", BCId);
    associateRequest.RelatedEntities = new EntityReferenceCollection();
    foreach (var item in AssociatedBC)
     associateRequest.RelatedEntities.Add(new EntityReference("iba_bc", new Guid(item.NewBCId.ToString())));
    if (associateRequest.RelatedEntities.Count > 0)
    associateRequest.Relationship = new Relationship("iba_bc_iba_bc");
    associateRequest.Relationship.PrimaryEntityRole = EntityRole.Referenced;
    var associateResponse = service.Execute(associateRequest);                                       

    Need help on this.
