Hello

I've seen this issue a few times on various blogs and wondering if the experts can help... I have the following piece of JS below.

What its essentially doing is obtaining the parent objectid of one of our customized entities, application form. The parent form is the Contact form.
With the object id it then runs a little function which send fetchXML query to retrieve a piece of data from a relating form (lead) and bring it back.

This piece of code works find thru the CRM Web Client. However it fails when CRM is used thru Outlook, with a 'Access is Denied' error message.

However, it works for me thru Outlook as I am Domain admin user but fail for a general user..
Some users are also running Windows 7 in case that is related..


thanks

if (crmForm.all.new_fundercasenumber.DataValue == null) {
    if ( window.opener) //checks if current window has a parent window
    {
        var oParentForm = window.opener.parent.document.getElementById('crmForm');
        if ( oParentForm == null) {
            oParentForm = window.opener.parent.document.crmForm;
        }
        if ( oParentForm) //This confirms if the parent window is a CRM form
        {
            // Now try to access a field in the parent form.
            if ( oParentForm.ObjectId) //This ensures you have reached the form you're looking for
            {
                var fundingNumber = getEnquiryFundCaseNumber(oParentForm.ObjectId);
                if ( fundingNumber != null) {
                    crmForm.all.new_fundercasenumber.DataValue = fundingNumber;
                }

            }
        }
    }
}

Well as I read your post this occurs when you open an "Entity B" record from an open "Entity A" record, correct?
And the script is running on "Entity B", still correct?

If you answered "Yes" to both questions read on, otherwise jump to "FINALLY".

If "Entity B" is in a Many-To-One relation with "Entity A" you should have a lookup on "Entity B" refering to the parent "Entity A" record. Thus, instead of going through window.open just grab the ID from the lookup.

If on the other hand "Entity B" is in a One-To-Many relation the lookup will be on "Entity A", in this case place a little javascript on "Entity A" which alters the link which opens "Entity B" by adding the ObjectId of "Entity A".



FINALLY:
And finally you should check that general user can execute the query you have in getEnquiryFundCaseNumber, you could do this by adding an ISV-button to "Entity A".

You are correct ..don't know why I did not think of doing it that way... Placed a lookup to parent A on form B and changed my code to below... Works fine.

// bring in funding case number from enquiry, if its not given.
if (crmForm.all.new_fundercasenumber.DataValue == null) {
    var contactLookup = crmForm.all.new_applicantid.DataValue;
    if ( contactLookup != null) {  //This confirms if the parent window is a CRM form
        var fundingNumber = getEnquiryFundCaseNumber( contactLookup[0].id);
        if (fundingNumber != null) {
            crmForm.all.new_fundercasenumber.DataValue = fundingNumber;
        }
    }
}
