  • Could you please tell any scenario in which it's not firing? 

    If its registered properly it must be firing all the time. You can check CRM Trace to investigate it further.

  • There's 1 easy way to determine if the plugin is in fact firing, and that is to add this into the first line of your plugin (inside Execute):

    throw new InvalidPluginExecutionException("the plugin is fine");

    If your error gets thrown every time, then you know the plugin is at least firing, then you need to figure out where in your code you have a check that is not doing what it's expected to do.

    Edit: If it's still not firing with the exception, then check the filtering attributes on the plugin, or lastly check the server and make sure that all the CRM Services are running, or try recycle the CRM Application Pool in IIS.

    Hope that helps
