  • When you registered the Plug-In to the assign message you would have had to tell it the Primary entity your were wishing to monitor. This will be the entity within the Target object returned, unless you kept it generic (respond to an assign for any entity).

    One thing I would suggest is switch on the debugger by attaching the Plug-In code to the web service and/or asynch service. That way you can step into the code when the Plug-In fires and then you can trawl through the object model to see what data is available to you.

  • To identify the record that's being assigned, you should be able to use the context.PrimaryEntityId property.

    The owner to which the record is assigned is probably passed as the Assignee InputParameter, which is of type EntityReference
