AsyncOperation (system job) entity


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

A system job, also known as an asynchronous operation, is used to define and track the execution of an asynchronous operation, for example an asynchronous registered plug-in, workflow, or other background system operation. When dealing with asynchronous plug-ins and workflows, you typically don’t create an asyncoperation entity record directly. Instead, an asyncoperation record is automatically created in the database whenever an asynchronous system operation, such as an asynchronous plug-in or a workflow, is going to run. However, you can use the asyncoperation entity when you develop custom tools to manage or report on asynchronous operations in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Note that System Job is the display name of this entity when you view it in Dynamics 365. When you program by using the Microsoft Dynamics 365 SDK, you use the asyncoperation logical name.
