IExecutionContext.Depth Property

Dynamics CRM 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online

Gets the current depth of execution in the call stack.

Namespace: Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk
Assembly: Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk (in Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll)

Property Value

Type: Int32
T the current depth of execution in the call stack.

Used by the platform for infinite loop prevention. In most cases, this property can be ignored.

Every time a running plug-in or Workflow issues a message request to the Web services that triggers another plug-in or Workflow to execute, the Depth property of the execution context is increased. If the depth property increments to its maximum value within the configured time limit, the platform considers this behavior an infinite loop and further plug-in or Workflow execution is aborted.

The maximum depth (8) and time limit (one hour) are configurable by the Microsoft Dynamics CRM administrator using the PowerShell command Set-CrmSetting. The setting is WorkflowSettings.MaxDepth. For more information, see, “Administer the deployment using Windows PowerShell” in the Implementation Guide.
