UserId & InitiatingUserId properties in Plugin of CRM

In CRM plugin, “IExecutionContext” contains 2 properties

  • UserId
    • Gets the GUID of the user for whom the plug-in invokes “on behalf of”.
  • InitiatingUserId
    • Gets the GUID of the user under which the current pipeline is executing.

Consider a scenario

  • You have a user “RAJ” with “Sales Person” role with only “User Level” “Read” privilege on ‘Contact’
  • You have a plugin on Post Deletion of ‘Contact’ with name “PostContactDelete”
  • Assume in one particular scenario user “RAJ” should be able to delete a ‘Contact’
  • So you can run the “PostContactDelete” plugin in the user with “SystemAdministrator” role
    • (i.e., Set “Run in User’s Context” to User with admin role; In sample screen shot below I chosen my admin user whose name is  ‘CRM WaSu1)
Run in User Context

Run in User Context

  • When User “RAJ” logs in and try to delete ‘Contact’ the plug-in “PostContactDelete” fires. When you debug
    • IExecutionContext.UserId = GUID of  SystemAdministrator (i.e., OnBehalfOf User ‘RAJ’)
    • IExecutionContext. InitiatingUserId =GUID of  RAJ   (i.e., Actual User)
