  • Hi Srikanth,

    You can use Pre or Post message of your contact.This example will set the name to related account.You can set the fields due to your process

    protected void ExecutePreContactUpdate(LocalPluginContext localContext) { if (localContext == null) { throw new ArgumentNullException("localContext"); } IPluginExecutionContext context = localContext.PluginExecutionContext; IOrganizationService service = localContext.OrganizationService;

      Entity entity = (Entity)localContext.PluginExecutionContext.InputParameters["Target"];

    Entity preImageEntity = (context.PreEntityImages != null && context.PreEntityImages.Contains(this.preImageAlias)) ? context.PreEntityImages[this.preImageAlias] : null;

    Entity account = new Entity ();

    account.Id = ((EntityReference)preImageEntity["parentcustomerid"]).Id;

    account["name"] = entity["fullname"];
