Making Xrm.WebApi.retrieveRecord Synchronous calls in Common Data Service (D365 fo CE)

With v9 a lot of changed. One of the major changes is client web API, some of calls were made deprecated and some were added. For example, Xrm.WebApi.

The new ‘Xrm.WebApi.retrieveRecord(entityLogicalName, id, options).then(successCallback, errorCallback)’ can’t be made synchronous. But imagine situation, in which you need to go through multiple entities (lookups). In this scenario, you need the result of retrieved record to access the next record. So how can this be done?

Override the default open behavior of data rows in an entity-bound grid

Hello there, fellow power platform customizers/developers! Have you tried to override the default open behavior in subgrid and failed?

 

What I’ve found in my research:

Documentation by Microsoft says: “You can now create a command definition for an entity with Mscrm.OpenRecordItem as the value of the Id attribute (<CommandDefinition> (RibbonDiffXml)), and define custom action for the command <Actions> (RibbonDiffXml).

IMPORTANT NOTE: This feature is supported only for Unified Interface.

Did this. No luck. What now? Google…
