CRM 2015 save method with callbacks to navigate away from an error

Posted by on Jul 16, 2015 in CRM 2013, CRM 2015 |

Recently i stumbled upon an edge case scenario where the logged in user that has access to the record was making a specific change to the record which in turn fired the elevated plugin which removed his access and threw this strange error:

Server Is Busy

server-busy

During my investigation, i had to come up with a way to remove this annoying error and take them back to the grid screen. Thankfully the Xrm.Page.data has a method save with the option to set callback functions to be executed after the save operation is completed.

Hooking onto these methods, i threw an alert and used the history.go method to return to the grid.

Notice the set_forceNavigationAway method, this is used to disable the the onbeforeunload message that CRM prompts saying you have unsaved changes to the form.
