CRM 2011 – Plugin Message list

I have google this question loads and loads and never seemed to get close to find a list of the messages avaiable in plugins.

in fact if you type into google

CRM 2011 Plugin Messages

you won’t get a list of messages, you get a list of random stuff and I couldn’t find these in the SDK but luckily today Jamie Miley has them all listed on his blog, which is an excellent blog by the way, I have featured quite a few of Javascript entries on my blog, so you should definitely bookmark his blog, particularly if you are CRM Developer.

I often wondered how many plugin messages there were and it turns out there are loads because Jamie can’t even list them all one one blog post and has had to put it over two blog posts

Part 1

part 2

I want this list to be available on my computer so I have put them into an excel file which you can download yourself by clicking on the link below

Once again thanks a lot Jamie I have been looking for this list for weeks.

I noticed you published a spreadsheet out there with the full list of messages.  I just wanted to mention quickly that such a spreadsheet already exists (it was the basis of my blog) in the SDK in the /tools directory.


who would have thought that all the time the information was already sitting on my machine in the CRM sdk /tools directory and it goes by the name of

message-entity support for plug-ins.xlsx

well if Microsoft had mentioned this information in a more obvious fashion I wouldn’t have been searching google for it.

    I can see that we need to work on making this information more findable in the SDK. Here is the page in the online docs that tells you where to find the plug-in information in the download package.

    The reason we didn’t include it in the page is that it is a huge list that is much more easily consumed in a spreadsheet. We’ll look at better ways to present the info a future update.

    Lots of people hit this blog searching for plugin messages and although it is easily consumed in a list the problem is no one knows it’s actually there.

    Usually when you have a question you get the answer by typing it into a search engine, not by looking in folders of the CRM SDK to find a huge excel document.

    The information you have provided is ok but when someone is developing a plugin it’s for a certain entity and you want to find the messages for that entity. The list on the link just lists the messages, which makes it difficult to understand what messages there are for the order entity or the incident entity.

      Yes, I am one of those people hitting to this blog post and found out it’s already in my machine inside SDK folder. ;D
