Update all Opportunities when one is updated - avoid infinite loop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have a requirement to update certain field update on any given Opportunity P tied to Account A to be synced up to all Opportunities associated with the same parent Account A. I am planning to do that on the postOpportunityUpdate. But I am afraid this will cause a infinite loop. What is the best way to handle this scenario?

  • Hi,

    In addition to Above post please check this also

    1. Write your Plugin on PostUpdate of the opportunity
    2.To avoid the infinite loop use 
     if(context.Depth == 1)

      //update associated opportunities of Account



    3.In plugin Registration tool,select the filtering attributes(say p in your case)

    4.Note : Since this a post update of opportunity you cannot get the other attributes value in event pipeline
            use Post Image to get the value other attributes.

  • Hi,

    Simply you can create one new field and use that as a flag means update that new field to yes also with your desired field.

    And you can use above flag as a filtered criteria in plugin.

    Also i think there is a limit of 5,000 records update via plugin and execution time will not more than 2 mins.
