CRM 2015 Online worflow "perform action", Required field 'Target' is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am including an Action in a workflow from "Perform Action" in step menu in a workflow.  The action is to return a specific country entity according to an input argument of two-digit country code.  After triggering the workflow, then check  System Jobs, it always errors out with a message "Required field 'Target' is missing".

    The Action has an input parameter of two-digit country code (string), an output parameter of Country (EntityReference).  Configuring Action in workflow, besides two-digit country code, it asks for Target (lookup).  I do not know what this Target is asking for.  I passed Lead (Country), or Country (Country), however, it always returns "Required field 'Target' is missing" error.

    Does anyone know how to use "Perform Action" in workflow?  Thanks

  • Interesting, in CRM Online (2015 Update 1) when creating a workflow I cannot select an Action that has a Target Entity and can only select Actions that were configured with Entity as None (global).  Have you upgraded CRM Online from a previous version 2011/2013?

  • Sorry for delaying the response.  Yes, we are using CRM 2015 Online, with Update 1.  Yes, we can select Action with Target entity.

  • How do you assigning the output of the action?

    AFAIK to set the output parameter like that you probably need to write a plugin to set the value, sample: http://missdynamicscrm.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/crm-2013-register-custom-action-as.html
