When I create the code adding this record by insert class this event stop working

Dear Tomasz,

You are right. Using Insert class doesn't fire any business processes. It connected to the fact that Insert class works directly with database not with entity. We recommend using this class only if perfomance is high priority. It much faster than EntitySchemaQuery class, because the Insert, Update, Delete classes skip all events and rights check. If you want to fire your business process, use EntitySchemaQuery:

var entitySchemaManager = UserConnection.EntitySchemaManager;

var entitySchema = entitySchemaManager.GetInstanceByName("Contact");

Entity schemeObject = entitySchema.CreateEntity(UserConnection);

schemeObject.SetDefColumnValues(); // don't forget call this method every time

schemeObject.SetColumnValue("Name", "Daniel Redkliff");

bool successfullySaved = schemeObject.Save();

Peter Vdovukhin,


EntitySchemaQuery is also not triggering any event. I am using the update query using EntitySchemaQuery.

My code:

var entitySchemaManager = userConnection.EntitySchemaManager;
var entitySchema = entitySchemaManager.GetInstanceByName("Contact");
Entity schemeObject = entitySchema.CreateEntity(userConnection);
if (schemeObject.FetchFromDB(recordId))
    schemeObject.SetColumnValue("Reason", Column.Parameter(reason));
    if (status.ToLower() == "completed")
        schemeObject.SetColumnValue("CompletedOn", Column.Parameter(statusDate));
