How to leverage existing plugin validations in Canvas App?

Posted on by 863


I have a table in model-driven that has different complex plugins for data validation across different tables.

We are requested to extend this table inside a Canvas Application.

The main goals that we want to achieve:

Instead of building the same validations/functionality that we developed in the plugins, would it be possible in the canvas to identify that in case one of the plugins has failed to throw an error with the appropriate error message related to the desired plugin?

Example: I have one of the plugins that checks for time overlaps when creating leave requests between employees and another plugin that fetches my leave balances. If the plugin that fetches my leave balances fails OnVisible of the screen, I want to throw the error dynamically that it comes from that particular plugin.

What is the best practice to avoid doing development again on everything on the canvas since the logic already exists in model-driven?

Any help is highly appreciated.
