Child exceptions in MS CRM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Folks...

    I have a question on the Exception handling in MS CRM. Below is my query 

    I have entity A and on A record creation  entity B record gets created.. On record B Creation.. entity C records gets created through plugin.

    Now, if any exception raises in C... OR if i throw a custom exception from plugin C, I need to catch that in the Plugin A ?? A is the Parent of B.. B is the Parent of C. Is that possible ? & how? 

    let me know if I'm clear.. 

    Thanks in advance :)

  • Hello Viswanath,

    I believe it can't be done directly, on behalf of plugins execution pipeline (when records B is created, the execution of plugin of entity A is already done). However you can follow one of the approach's:

    If you need to catch the exception just for logging:

    You can create a custom entity that will keep track of every plugin execution and on the catch block of every plugin you can create a new record on the custom entity

    If you need to catch the exception to change the state of the parent record:

    In this case, I recommend 2 options:

    1) Move your code from CRM to an external service (You can create a WCF or API that your CRM Plugin will invoke asynchronously and so you can handle your flow manually, which means you can create record A, B, C, D and if record E throws an exception you can do whatever you want with records A,B,C,D and E

    2) On the catch block of your plugin, you can use the ParentId to change any property or execute any action of the parent record.
