Is it possible to search for a record in CRM using GUID with Advanced Find?
Short answer: No
Longer answer: No, but there are other ways to get what you want. Here is one of them.
- Select a record of the desired type in CRM and click the copy link button
- Paste the link to the text editor of your choice.
- Edit the link and change the ID (red text area) to the GUID that you want to find.
- Copy the URL, paste in browser, and go.
Hmm, works for me. I could even retrieve a View by its identifier.
Another daysaver – works like a charm 🙂
It’s not working for me.
How does it work without knowing the entity type of that GUID. etc=1 in that URL seems like an account to me and I think it’ll only work for account record GUID.
The url must include either
etcvalue (as in the example in the post), or
etnwhere the entity name can be used, e.g.
Follow the instructions in the post–copy the URL of a record in the entity of which you want to find, then replace the GUID> It will contain the right entity type code.
