    If your Action is entity-specific you will have to pass entity id.

    If you don't want your action to entity-specific and pass an array of selected records you will have to recreate Action as Global.

    yes .its entity specific and I have all the selected record Ids also,...Now what I am trying to do  is on the click of my custom ribbon button I  want to call custom action which will create a record on another entity and place all the ids in a field I have created , for that I have used input argument in action to hold the ids.

       So, I have a confusion that is it necessary to pass a entity record id ... to call a action because  there is no use of entity name or entity record id ...

       it will be very helpful , if you can clear my doubt.

    Is you action global or entity-specific?

    If it is global - there is an example how to call global action in the same article.

    If it is entity-specific I believe you want to run action against selected record(records). To get selected records ids check following article - ribbonworkbench.uservoice.com/.../129783-pass-the-currently-selected-grid-row-s-to-a-custo

    Hi Andrii,

                I read this article ..and others  there they are using the record id as in the article you have send to me :::::   var query = "accounts(DE57510E-59A3-E511-80E4-3863BB35AD90)/Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.new_TestAction";

    the id of  the record is given..  I stuck here which record id I should give  because I want to call custom action from custom ribbon button which is in the main home grid .. not in the form.
