Plug-in Step Filters not working

Posted on by 40

Hi experts,

I have made a Assembly with a couple of plugins for a Model Driven App in Power Apps. I'm using the Plugin Registration Tool to add plugins/debug them. Everything was working fine until I imported the solution I made to Production. In production Filters were not working. So I tried exporting without Plugin Profiler/ with Profiler... Now in Test environment the filters are also not working.

A example:

I have a plugin that will fire when Price field of  Training Entitie changes (Update: Filter attribute, Price).

I have another plugin that will fire when StartBudget field/StartDays field of  TraineeBudget Entitie changes  (Update: Filter attribute, StartBudget & StartDays).

When I change the comment field of Training Entitie (which is not included in Filter attributes) and save the Training record it fires the first Plugin. This plugin would make changes to the TraineeBudget Entitieremaining budget field and remaining days field. This causes the second plugin also to fire (while this plugins only would fire on startbudget, startdays).

I disabled all workflows to make sure these weren't causing it.. I also tried changing my Plugins from Postoperation to Preoperation to see if this would make any change but filters are still not working. I looked all over the internet to find a solution to my issue but nothing changes..

Best Regards,

Anthony

    I am assuming either comment field is added somewhere in filters to trigger the plugin execution. Or at on change of Comment field price field is getting updated through workflow, business rules.

    I only have 1 Business Rule in the application and I deactivated it. I only have a JavaScript file to open a new Extra Cost record as a centered dialog and a JavaScript file to add icons in a grid.

    Here's a code snippet of the Update TraineeBudget Record:

     public class UpdateTraineeBudgets : IPlugin
        {
            private static IOrganizationService _service;
            private IOrganizationServiceFactory _serviceFactory;
            private IPluginExecutionContext _context;
            public void Execute(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)
            {
                _context = (IPluginExecutionContext)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IPluginExecutionContext));
    
                if (_context.Depth > 1)
                {
                    return;
                }
    
                _serviceFactory = (IOrganizationServiceFactory)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IOrganizationServiceFactory));
                _service = _serviceFactory.CreateOrganizationService(_context.UserId);
    
                if (_context.MessageName == "Update")
                {
                    UpdateBudgets();
                }
            }
            private void UpdateBudgets()
            {
                {
                    var targetEntity = _context.InputParameters["Target"] as Entity;
                    var preUpdate = EntityMapper.Map(_context.PreEntityImages["cref8_jaarlijkbudget"]);
                    var budget = EntityMapper.Map(_service.Retrieve(targetEntity.LogicalName, targetEntity.Id, new ColumnSet("cref8_jaarlijkbudgetid","cref8_overigebudget","cref8_overigedagen","cref8_startbudget","cref8_startdagen")));
    
                    var budgetToSave = new Entity("cref8_jaarlijkbudget");
                    budgetToSave["cref8_jaarlijkbudgetid"] = budget.Id;
    
                    if (budget.StartDays != 0)
                    {
                        double? newDays = budget.StartDays - (preUpdate.StartDays - budget.RemainingDays);
                        budgetToSave["cref8_overigedagen"] = newDays;
                    }
    
                    if (budget.StartBudget != 0)
                    {
                        double? newBudget = budget.StartBudget - (preUpdate.StartBudget - budget.RemainingBudget);
                        budgetToSave["cref8_overigebudget"] = newBudget;
                    }
    
                    _service.Update(budgetToSave);
                }
            }
        }

    Here's a code snippet of the Update TrainingCost:

     public class UpdateTrainingCost : IPlugin
        {
            private static IOrganizationService _service;
            private IOrganizationServiceFactory _serviceFactory;
            private IPluginExecutionContext _context;
            public void Execute(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)
            {
                _context = (IPluginExecutionContext)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IPluginExecutionContext));
    
                if (_context.Depth > 1)
                {
                    return;
                }
    
                _serviceFactory = (IOrganizationServiceFactory)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IOrganizationServiceFactory));
                _service = _serviceFactory.CreateOrganizationService(_context.UserId);
    
                if (_context.MessageName == "Update")
                {

    RE: Plug-in Step Filters not working

    Hi,

    When I change the comment field of Training Entitie (which is not included in Filter attributes) and save the Training record it fires the first Plugin

    Check if you have any Business Rule activated which is casuing this issue. Also, check if any javascript is setting the field value on change of Comment field which is causing this plugin to fire.

    This plugin would make changes to the TraineeBudget Entitie, remaining budget field and remaining days field. This causes the second plugin also to fire (while this plugins only would fire on startbudget, startdays).

    Can you please share code snippet which you used to update TrianingBudget Entity record. I hope you are only mapping required fields but not others.

    Please mark my answer verified if this is helpful!
