AsyncOperation (System Job) Entity
A system job, also known as an asynchronous operation, is used to define and track the execution of an asynchronous operation, for example an asynchronous registered plug-in, workflow, or other background system operation. When dealing with asynchronous plug-ins and workflows, you typically do not directly create an asyncoperation entity record. Instead, an asyncoperation record is created in the database by the platform whenever an asynchronous plug-in or a workflow is to execute, or any one of other asynchronous system operations is to be performed. However, the asyncoperation entity is useful when developing a custom tool to manage or report on asynchronous operations in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Note that System Job is the display name of this entity when viewed in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The asyncoperation logical name is always used when programming with the SDK.
