Plug-in registration entities
Applies to Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.x
The plug-in registration entities define a Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Web Services message, the entities that support a particular SDK message, and the entities used during plug-in registration. These entities do not apply to custom workflow activities.
An SDK Message defines a message to the Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement platform. The message represents the operation that the platform is to perform. You should not create or update a record of this entity.
An SDK Message Filter defines what entity type, for example, account or contact, supports a particular SDK message. It also identifies whether a custom plug-in can be registered for the message and executed when the message is processed by the event execution pipeline.
The SDK message processing entities are used when registering a plug-in in the event execution pipeline. An SDK Message Processing Step entity identifies the event in the pipeline for which a plug-in should be executed. An SDK Message Processing Step Image entity stores a snapshot of an entity, including its attributes, during an event that occurs before or after the core platform operation. An SDK Message Processing Step Secure Configuration entity stores secure custom information that is passed to a plug-in’s constructor at run-time.
