Plugin message for 1:N/ N:1 relationship RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    There is a scenario. There are total 4 entities. Say entity1, entity2, entity3 and entity4. Now entity1 is having 1:N relationship with all three entities. Means entity1 is present on other entities as a lookup field. Now whenever entity1 is selected in entity2/entity3/entity4, I need to change a value in the entity1's field. I am looking if there is any message for which I can trigger a plugin. I am not looking forward the solution to write three plugins or workflow to solve this purpose.

    Any suggestions?

    Regards,

  • Hello Krutika,

    I believe you can develop 1 plugin and register it against 3 entities - entity2/3/4.

    So one plugin and 3 steps.
