[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0]
In Microsoft Dynamics CRM you can control how certain actions on a parent record affect child records. The actions that have cascading behavior are as follows:
The cascading rules are described in the following table.
|Cascade All||Perform the action on the specified entity instance and all related entity instances.|
|Cascade None||Perform the action on the specified entity instance only. Do not cascade to related entity instances.|
|Cascade Active||Perform the action on the specified entity instance and all related entity instances that are active or open.|
|Cascade User Owned||Perform the action on the specified entity instance and all related entity instances that are owned by the same user as this entity.|
|Remove Link||Perform the action on the specified entity instance and remove the link to the related entity instance. No changes are made to the related entity instance.|
|Restrict||Applies to delete only. The delete is not allowed if there are other entity instances that reference the ID of the entity instance being deleted.|
These relationship types are represented by the following properties in the relationship metadata:
