Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011: Sharing an Opportunity

Importing Data into CRM 2011

This video shows an example of importing Accounts and Contacts into CRM 2011. You can easily import records into almost any entity in CRM. You can create templates and use them over and over. But it's really pretty easy to just create them from scratch when you need them. I usually import direct from csv files.

Connect To Microsoft Dynamics CRM Using Organization Service

Simplest way of connecting to Microsoft Dynamics CRM is using OrganizationService.

OrganizationService constructor can take connection string or CrmConnection object as parameter.

public OrganizationService(string connectionStringName);
public OrganizationService(CrmConnection connection);

Method 1

Pass the connection string name to constructor.

IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService("connection");

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity); 

Method 2

In CrmConnection constructor pass the connection string name, which further should be passed in OrganizationService constructor.

CrmConnection connection = new CrmConnection("connection");
IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService(connection); //System.configuration

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity); 

CrmConnection requires following additional assembly to be referenced.

System.configuration 

Method 3

Use CrmConnection.Parse method to create CrmConnection object and pass that to OrganizationService constructor.

string connString="Url=http://crm.contoso.com/xrmContoso; Domain=CONTOSO; Username=jsmith; Password=passcode;";

CrmConnection connection = CrmConnection.Parse(connString);
IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService(connection); //System.configuration

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity);
