Property Value

Type:

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 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 365 administrator using the PowerShell command Set-CrmSetting. The setting is WorkflowSettings.MaxDepth. For more information, see, “Administer the deployment using Windows PowerShell” in the Deploying and administering Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
