CRM 2011: Updating the reocrd in plugin after invalid plugin execution exception RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI All,

    I am updating the record which triggering a plugin. on a webexception I am trying to update the same record in catch block, but not successful. If I use ExecuteMultipleRequest with continueonError = true, then program stucks and crash with timeout exception.

    If I user OrgService.Update then it rolls it back.

    Please suggest.

  • Structure is something like this:

    public voidExecute(IServiceProviderserviceProvider)


       try{  }

        catch(WebException ex){


                 //upon failure of re-enrolment set the application back to normal settings
                    Entity app = new Entity("contact");

                    app["middlename"] = "test";

                    app.Id = contact.Id;

                    UpdateRequest updateRequest = new UpdateRequest();

                    updateRequest.Target = app;

                    ExecuteMultipleRequest mulReq = new ExecuteMultipleRequest()



                       Requests = new OrganizationRequestCollection(),

                       Settings = new ExecuteMultipleSettings()


                              ContinueOnError = true,

                               ReturnResponses =





                      var reqponse = service.Execute(mulReq);



                     if(webEx.Response != null)



                       if(webEx.Response.ContentLength > 0)



                             WebApiResult<RegisterForPreEnrolmentRequestMessage> resultEx = ParseResponse<WebApiResult<RegisterForPreEnrolmentRequestMessage>>(webEx.Response.GetResponseStream());






    In exception block if I use different record then it updates but if I use the same record to update in executemultiplerequest then it just freezes and comes back with timeout exception.

    please suggest!
