Clear Cache and Hard Reload – Google Chrome

Hi Everyone,

Whenever we do some changes in JavaScript, Form Changes etc. in Dynamics 365, we all know we must hard reload the browser. And sometime, even hard reload might not work for the first time and we reload the page multiple times to get the changes.

Here is the simple to clear cache and hard reload the browser and you see the changes immediately.

  • Open Dynamics 365 on Chrome Browser and open Developer Tools (Ctrl+Shift+I)
  • Put the mouse on Refresh Icon and right click. You will three options as shown below and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”

This option will clear the cache and reload the page.

Hope this helps.

Multi-Table Lookup/Polymorphic Lookup Field in Dynamics 365 CE

Hi Everyone,

We all know that a lookup pointing to multiple tables was an ask from many customers. Although we have a Partylist field available on Email entity, we don’t have any control to create the same as a Custom Field.

Our voice has been heard by Microsoft and released Multi-Table Lookup in Dynamics 365. For now, creation of this lookup is allowed via C# code or Web API.

Here is the code and explanation for the same.

I have four entities named as Vehicle, Motorcycle, Trucks and Cars.

We need a lookup on Vehicle entity which hold information about all other three entities.

I did run the below code and it created a lookup on Vehicle entity where I can select the record from any of the three entities (Motorcycle, Trucks or Cars).

            OrganizationRequest orgRequest = new OrganizationRequest();

            orgRequest.RequestName = "CreatePolymorphicLookupAttribute";

            // specify lookup attribute details
            orgRequest.Parameters["Lookup"] = new LookupAttributeMetadata()
            {
                SchemaName = "new_myfirstpolymorphiclookup",
                DisplayName = new Label("My First Polymorphic Lookup", 1033)
            };

            // Relationship 1
            var oneToManyRelation1 = new OneToManyRelationshipMetadata();
            oneToManyRelation1.ReferencingEntity = "new_vehicle";
            oneToManyRelation1.ReferencedEntity = "new_motorcycle";
            oneToManyRelation1.SchemaName = "new_vehicle_new_new_motorcycle";

            // Relationship 2
            var oneToManyRelation2 = new OneToManyRelationshipMetadata();
            oneToManyRelation2.ReferencingEntity = "new_vehicle";
            oneToManyRelation2.ReferencedEntity = "new_truck";
            oneToManyRelation2.SchemaName = "new_vehicle_new_new_truck";


            // Relationship 3
            var oneToManyRelation3 = new OneToManyRelationshipMetadata();
            oneToManyRelation3.ReferencingEntity = "new_vehicle";
            oneToManyRelation3.ReferencedEntity = "new_car";
            oneToManyRelation3.SchemaName = "new_vehicle_new_new_car";

            orgRequest.Parameters["OneToManyRelationships"] = new OneToManyRelationshipMetadata[]
            {
                    oneToManyRelation1, oneToManyRelation2, oneToManyRelation3
            };

            // specify the existing solution name 
            orgRequest.Parameters["SolutionUniqueName"] = "MySolution";
            var response = crmServiceClient.Execute(orgRequest);

Hope this helps.
