IsValidStateTransitionRequest IsValidStateTransitionRequest IsValidStateTransitionRequest IsValidStateTransitionRequest Class


Contains the data that is needed to validate the state transition.

For the Web API use the IsValidStateTransition Function.

public ref class IsValidStateTransitionRequest sealed : Microsoft::Xrm::Sdk::OrganizationRequest
public sealed class IsValidStateTransitionRequest : Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationRequest
type IsValidStateTransitionRequest = class
    inherit OrganizationRequest
Public NotInheritable Class IsValidStateTransitionRequest
Inherits OrganizationRequest


      // Create an EntityReference to represent an open case
var caseReference = new EntityReference()
    LogicalName = Incident.EntityLogicalName,
    Id = _caseIncidentId
    var checkState = new IsValidStateTransitionRequest();

// Set the transition request to an open case
      checkState.Entity = caseReference;

// Check to see if a new state of "resolved" and 
// a new status of "problem solved" are valid
     checkState.NewState = IncidentState.Resolved.ToString();
     checkState.NewStatus = (int)incident_statuscode.ProblemSolved;

// Execute the request
var checkStateResponse = (IsValidStateTransitionResponse)svc.Execute(checkState);

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.
