Creating a plug-in on SavedQuery entity using CRM developer toolkit

In one of my requirement I have to create a plugin on “SavedQuery” entity to filter the views

I was using CRM developer toolkit and when I open the “CRM Explorer” I did not find “SavedQuery” entity

Later I came to know that “CRM Explorer” show entities by ‘Display Name’ and there was entity with name ‘View’ for ‘SavedQuery’

      Hi Pradeep,
      You get CRM Explorer when you install CRM DEV Toolkit and open the “New Visual studio solution template for Dynamics CRM 2011” template from Visual Studio

    I still did not find my custom entity even if I compare the display name. I choosed to display the entity in some area because it was not displayed before (You need only to save, no publishing required). After refreshing CRM Explorer the entity became visible so I could create the plugin. However, there are other entities which are already displayed in CRM areas but still not visible in CRM Explorer… It seems there are a couple of conditions cause the entitity in CRM Explorer to be displayed or not.

    PS: Rajeev, I raised your shortcut to fill in your name and web address, which you might not have been intended. When focus is on name text box I press SHIFT + TAB and TAB again and your data is displayed 🙂
