BulkDetectDuplicatesRequest BulkDetectDuplicatesRequest BulkDetectDuplicatesRequest BulkDetectDuplicatesRequest Class


Contains the data that is needed to submit an asynchronous system job that detects and logs multiple duplicate records.

For the Web API use the BulkDetectDuplicates Action.

Web API support for this message was added with December 2016 update for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) and December 2016 Service Pack for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (on-premises)

The following example shows how to use this message. For this sample to work correctly, you must be connected to the server to get an IOrganizationService interface. For the complete sample, see the link later in this topic.

Message Availability

For this message to work, the caller must be connected to the server.


Pass an instance of this class to the Execute(OrganizationRequest) method, which returns an instance of the BulkDetectDuplicatesResponse class.

Privileges and Access Rights

To perform this action, the caller must have access rights on the entity records that are specified in the request class. For a complete list of the required privileges, see BulkDetectDuplicates message privileges.

Notes for Callers

The asynchronous system job detects multiple duplicate records and logs them as duplicate records by using the DuplicateRecord entity. Before you use this message, set the IsDuplicateDetectionEnabled attribute for an entity to true and publish all duplicate rules (duplicate detection rules) for an entity.
