[BUG] context.webAPI.retrieveMultipleRecords is not a function

Hi All,

I have encountered this error today. My control stopped working because it says that "context.webAPI.retrieveMultipleRecords is not a function".  To verify that issue is not because of the errors in my code I called context.webAPI.retrieveMultipleRecords in the init method and I use the code from this example. Previously everything worked fine. Does anyone else experience this issue as well?

Re: [BUG] context.webAPI.retrieveMultipleRecords is not a function

Hi All,

I found a way to make it work again: in ControlManifest.Input.xml file added 

    <feature-usage>
      <uses-feature name="WebAPI" required="true" />
    </feature-usage>

and everything works. However, without this line of code, it still doesn't work.

It is an internal bug which has been reported I am also facing same issue.

I have the same issue. My control suddenly stopped working, although I haven't changed anything. I have debugged it and found all the methods in WebAPI object are showing null values. Obviously it is a Microsoft bug. It is a very serious bug and there is nothing we can do until Microsoft fixes it.
