CRM 2016: Selected stage and highlighted stage is not same when stageid is set via plugin

this is just a copy past of the website

Faced the weird error in Business process flow in CRM 2016 version.

Scenario is when we move the business process stage programmatically via plugin by setting thestageid field, you will find a weird behaviour where BPF is still showing the existing stage as highlighted however the active stage is set to correct stage i.e. next stage.

After googling some blogs (link)proposed some javascript methods like but that don’t really help as this is specific to client side scripting. Then the next hope was to dig into the entity fields and find out if there is any hidden field which is storing the selected stage value for that respective record and here I got the reference.

In CRM 2016 (not sure about CRM 2015), there is field called “TraversedPath” which stores the gui…

Decode/render HTML from a field in crm dynamics

In email entity the Hmtl is well decode.

but if you want to decode it in other entity, it will not work you will just see the tag everywhere

then I propose you to create a webressource and to apply this code. as you can see the field to to decode is hard coded but you can also give it as a webressource parameter. in a old post I explain how to pass value

here is the html + javascript

<html><head><meta></head> <body onload="onLoad()" onfocusout="parent.setEmailRange();" style="overflow-wrap: break-word;"> <script > function onLoad() { debugger; var para = document.createElement("decodedDescription"); var descriptionHtml = window.parent.Xrm.Page.getAttribute("description").getValue(); para.innerHTML = descriptionHtml; document.getElementById("decodedDescription").appendChild(para); }   </script > <div id="decodedDescription"> </div> </body></html>

make code wait for async 8.2

The async function to wait

function getSetting (settingName)
var req = new XMLHttpRequest();

return new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {

    // Setup our listener to process compeleted requests
    req.onreadystatechange = function () {

        // Only run if the request is complete
        if (req.readyState !== 4) return;

        // Process the response
        if (req.status >= 200 && req.status < 300) {
            // If successful
            ( req      );
        } else {
            // If failed
                alert ("multiple setting with the name :" + settingName)

    };"GET", Xrm.Page.context.getClientUrl() + "/api/data/v8.2/query, false);
req.setRequestHeader("OData-MaxVersion", "4.0");
req.setRequestHeader("OData-Version", "4.0");
req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");

Add clickable button in the form

I do it via webressource
      * {
                    margin: 0;
                    padding: 0;

                    background-color: #00B3D9;
                    color: #FFFFFF;
                    font-family: Segoe UI, Tahoma, Arial;
                    font-size: 14px;
                    padding: 5px 10px 5px 10px;
                    margin: 0px 4px 3px 1px;
                    width: 100px;

Remap crm user to ActiveDirectory User

I imported an organization and I mapped only system user

CRM : 2016 V8.2 OnPremise

Then at the end only mapped User can connect To CRM while normal user are still visible in CRM systemUser.

To see if they are mapped you can use

select * from MSCRM_CONFIG.[dbo].[SystemUserOrganizations] org
join SystemUserBase users on (users.SystemUserId = org.CrmUserId)

then to remapp normal user I did

1/ disable user + save
2/ change the logon user (I added a s after) + Save
3/ change back the logon by the correct logon user (remove the S)
4 enable the user

re do the query,
select * from MSCRM_CONFIG.[dbo].[SystemUserOrganizations] org
join SystemUserBase users on (users.SystemUserId = org.CrmUserId)

you will see the user is mapped
