Virtual Entity Lookup field reference update

Posted on by 25

HI Team - I am looking for some guidance on how to set up virtual entity look up field.

We have custom entity Loan with couple of text , number fields and one borrower (contact) as look up field. I have created corresponding virtual loan entity with same borrower look up pointing to contact entity, so when this virtual entity is loaded , this shows subset of loan records having borrower name populated in look up field. 

I referred this MS article ( for creating retrieve multiple plugin to achieve above req# and it works partially when mapping virtual entity text field with loan entity schema name in plugin output collection but errors out (unexpected message) if I map lookup field in plugin code.

Please suggest , how can we populate lookup field in virtual entity from system entity.
