Create Clone In MS CRM


Very often we are troubled with writing huge codes and end up spending our valuable time for cloning an entity record. Just imagine the time needed if you are asked to create a cloned record with more than 100 attributes. Don’t you think it’s a time-consuming effort and how great would it be if all this could happen just with a couple of lines code?

The below sample code will guide you on how to create a clone

//remove original records guid
parentRecord.Id = Guid.Empty;
//remove parentRecord.LogicalName + “id”
parentRecord.Attributes.Remove(parentRecord.LogicalName + “id”);
//create Clone and get its guid
Guid childRecordId = service.Create(parentRecord);
