CRM 2013 - Find all associated records for a specific record RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem:

    Can't delete a contact record because it has associated records with 'restrict delete' behaviour (e.g. Contract)


    Find all associated records with 'restrict delete' behaviour


    Looking for a 'codeless' out of box solution.

    Otherwise, I could write a query to search through records of all entities with 'restrict delete' relationship to Contact.

  • 1. If it is just a few contacts that are posing this error then I would just open the records and delete the associated records. Set the relationship to display if it is not already showing associated records.

    2. Change the relationship behavior from restrict delete temporarily and then delete the records. This wouldn't be an good option if there are a lot of such relationships!

    3. Alternatively deactivate the contact record.
