Could not save record. Deleted object would be re-saved by cascade

When trying to register a CRM real-time map receiving error saying:

Could not save record. Deleted object would be re-saved by cascade (remove deleted object from associations).


This error is caused by a CRM field being removed from CRM, while still referenced in the real-time query.


If you know which fields were deleted:

  1. Add the fields back into CRM with the exact same schema.
  2. Re-register the map
  3. Optional: remove the field from the real-time query then delete the field out of CRM.

If you do not know which fields were deleted:

  1. You can run this script against your SmartConnect database to find the FetchXml the real-time query is returning. You will need to change Account with the display name of the entity the trigger is on.

Use SmartConnect

select FetchXml, EntityDescription, Registered

From [MsCrm2011RealTimeDataSource]

Inner Join [RealTimeDataSourceBase] ON [MsCrm2011RealTimeDataSourceId] = [RealTimeDataSourceBaseId]

Where [EntityDescription] =’Account’

  1. You will need to go through the XML and look for custom fields that are no longer in CRM. These are the fields you need to add back.
  2. Once the fields are back in CRM register the map.
