Quick Tip: How to modify view FetchXML

We can easily create or modify a view in Dynamics 365, this basically generates and saves view FetchXML. It is a great feature but we don’t have control to modify FetchXML. The good news is it can be done without writing code. “View Designer” is another useful XrmToolBox plugin which allows editing of view FetchXML, save and publish it back. I hope this quick tip was helpful.

How to view plugins deployment summary ?

Sometimes we need to know when last time a plugin was updated. This information is helpful usually before exporting assemblies from one environment to other.
In similar way few times we may need to know who updated a particular assembly last time ?

The following LINQ or Fetch Xml query will return this summary:

(from p in PluginAssemblySet
orderby p.ModifiedOn descending
select new
{
PluginName = p.Name, ModifiedOn = p.ModifiedOn.Value.ToLocalTime(),
ModifiedBy= p.ModifiedBy.Name, Role=p.ModifiedBy.LogicalName,Version=p.Version
}).Dump();
