Create a Plugin/plugins RRS feed

  • Posted previous message to wrong forum

    Hello all

    This is my first attempt at creating a plugin for dynamics crm. just looking for a few pointers.

    Scenario as follows:

    There are 2 entities

    Contact link: has contact and opportunity

    Company link: has company and opportunity.

    what im looking to achieve is when a contact link is created i need a plugin to check whether the contacts company is in the company link entity, if not then create that link else do nothing

    hope this makes sense

  • Have you thought of have one entity of customer link with three lookups contact, account and opportunity. It might make things simpler

  • Hello,

    I am agree with Faisal, unless you have a specific reason to create two entities.

    For plugin development you can refer SDK it has sample code to learn.

    The process will be write a create plugin on contact link, get contact entity from entity property bag, retrieve contact's company based on contact id and then compare company link, if not found write create message.

  • Another advantage of using one entity would be that you don't need a plugin. Workflow will do the job for you.
