In the Quote entity, I have a custom lookup field pointing to a custom entity. For some reason, I must update this lookup field when the quote is in active state (readonly) and from an external application.
If I use CRM SDK I cannot update the field because the quote is in read-only state, so I thinking to do the operation with a direct sql update to the database changing the guid in the field.Is it a good idea use this solution considering the field and the external entity are custom?If not, have you some suggestions?
Thank you very much
It is never recommended and not a good idea to update anything directly in the database.
there are few method you try to achieve this. :
mark my suggestion as verified if helpful.
Although you can do that as it's technically possible but this is not supported, so better to think about other options like suggested to change to draft mode and update and set back to activemode again.
