Retrieving an entity in a child pipeline that was created in the parent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    This is the scenario:

    1. Create record of type entityA.
    2. Fire synchronous plugin on post-op of entityA Create message and attempt to associate other entities of type entityB to itself (for simplicity, let's make it a single record).
    3. Associate message fires pre-op plugin - this plugin checks whether entityB record can be associated to entityA record based on predefined criteria and throws an Exception if not.

    To do step 3, I need to read fields from the entityA record, but whether I try to use the localContext.OrganizationService or try creating a new IOrganizationService using the (IOrganizationServiceFactory)localContext.ServiceProvider.GetService(typeof(IOrganizationServiceFactory)).CreateOrganizationService(context.UserIdcontext.UserId) I get SQL timeouts on the retrieve. I'm guessing this is a lock issue, since entityA record is still in the transaction from it's Create message? How do I read the values in? 

    P.S. I tried adding the entity to both the ShareVariables and the InputParameters and OutputParameters but the key isn't in any of those dictionaries when I enter the pre-op Associate plugin.

    P.P.S. I've also tried running in both Sandbox and None modes.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.
