Does it work with new custom entities?

Sep 15, 2011 at 3:28 PM

I got everything registered and uploaded in crm 2011, and got it working with accounts.

I then made a new custom entity, new_event, with a new autonumber field, and published it.

I then was able to successfully register a new plugin step on the new_event entity, just like for account.

I then went into CRM and added a new Counter with the correct info about the entity name and field.

However, it won't fill in the autonumber.  No errors or anything, it just leaves it blank.

Hi, have you tried the following yet? It's a very quick way to get Auto Numbering up and running, minutes not hours!

Hey Isabull.

The solution works for custom entity. I guess the reason is that you will need to give users and roles certain security settings for read and write. Please go through details in the documentation tab.

Let me know if you have issues.
