Call Global Custom Action using JavaScript in Dynamics 365

Sometimes there are scenarios you need to create Global Actions where you don\’t specify an entity in particularly. When you create such global action and if you need to call that action from your JavaScript code or on Button Click. Here is the way to do that.

Example of calling Global Action Without Parameters:

Create a Global Action

Add Steps and Copy Action Unique Name (My Custom Action)

JavaScript to call Action

//Execute the created global action using Web API.
function CallGlobalCustomAction() {

//get the current organization name
var serverURL = Xrm.Page.context.getClientUrl();

//query to send the request to the global Action
var actionName = \"new_MyCustomAction\"; // Global Action Unique Name

//Pass the input parameters of action
var data = {};

//Create the HttpRequestObject to send WEB API Request
var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
//Post the WEB API Request
req.open(
\"POST\", serverURL + \"/api/data/v8.0/\" + actionName, true);
req.setRequestHeader(
\"Accept\", \"application/json\");
req.setRequestHeader(
\"Content-Type\", \"application/json; charset=utf-8\");
req.setRequestHeader(
\"OData-MaxVersion\", \"4.0\");
req.setRequestHeader(
\"OData-Version\", \"4.0\");

req.onreadystatechange =
function () {
if (this.readyState == 4 /* complete */)
{
req.onreadystatechange =
null;

if (this.status == 200 || this.status == 204)
{
alert(
\"Action Executed Successfully...\");

}
else
{
var error = JSON.parse(this.response).error;
alert(
\"Error in Action: \"+error.message);
}
}
};
//Execute request passing the input parameter of the action
req.send(window.JSON.stringify(data));
}
