DeletedMetadataCollection Class

Dynamics CRM 2013

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

The structure used to return deleted metadata.

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

[CollectionDataContractAttribute(Name="DeletedMetadataCollection", Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Metadata/Query")] 
public sealed class DeletedMetadataCollection : DataCollection<DeletedMetadataFilters,DataCollection<Guid>>

This is the collection returned as the RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse.DeletedMetadata property when the RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest has values set for the ClientVersionStamp and DeletedMetadataFilters properties.

The following code snippets taken from Sample: Query Metadata and Detect Changes show how the DeletedMetadataCollectioncan be used to detect deleted OptionSetMetadata.


protected String updateOptionLabelList(EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression, String clientVersionStamp)
{
 //Retrieve metadata changes and add them to the cache
 RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse updateResponse;
 try
 {
  updateResponse = getMetadataChanges(entityQueryExpression, clientVersionStamp, DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet);
  addOptionLabelsToCache(updateResponse.EntityMetadata, true);
  removeOptionLabelsFromCache(updateResponse.DeletedMetadata, true);

 }
 catch (FaultException<Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault> ex)
 {
  // Check for ErrorCodes.ExpiredVersionStamp (0x80044352)
  // Will occur when the timestamp exceeds the Organization.ExpireSubscriptionsInDays value, which is 90 by default.
  if (ex.Detail.ErrorCode == unchecked((int)0x80044352))
  {
   //reinitialize cache
   _optionLabelList.Clear();

   updateResponse = getMetadataChanges(entityQueryExpression, null, DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet);
   //Add them to the cache and display the changes
   addOptionLabelsToCache(updateResponse.EntityMetadata, true);

  }
  else
  {
   throw ex;
  }

 }
 return updateResponse.ServerVersionStamp;
}
   
   
   ...
   
   
   
protected void removeOptionLabelsFromCache(DeletedMetadataCollection DeletedMetadata, Boolean showChanges)
{
 List<OptionSetOption> optionSetOptionsToRemove = new List<OptionSetOption>();

 if (DeletedMetadata.Keys.Contains(DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet))
 {
  DataCollection<Guid> optionsetmetadataids = (DataCollection<Guid>)DeletedMetadata[DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet];
  foreach (Guid metadataid in optionsetmetadataids)
  {
   foreach (OptionSetOption oso in _optionLabelList)
   {
    if (metadataid == oso.optionsetId)
    {
     optionSetOptionsToRemove.Add(oso);
    }
   }
  }
 }
 foreach (OptionSetOption option in optionSetOptionsToRemove)
 {
  _optionLabelList.Remove(option);
 }
 if (showChanges)
 {
  if (optionSetOptionsToRemove.Count > 0)
  {
   Console.WriteLine("{0} Option Labels removed", optionSetOptionsToRemove.Count);
   Console.WriteLine("{0} Total Option Labels currently cached", _optionLabelList.Count);
   Console.WriteLine("");
  }
  else
  {
   Console.WriteLine("No Option Labels removed.");
   Console.WriteLine("");
  }

 }
}
