Tutorial :How do I connect to a CRM IFD web service?



Question:

I have taken the code from the SDK and made just one modification to set the authentication type but when I try to connect I get an "Unauthorized" error.

My code is:

// Set up the CRM Service.  CrmAuthenticationToken token = new CrmAuthenticationToken();  token.AuthenticationType = 2;  token.OrganizationName = "TESTCRM";      CrmService service = new CrmService();  service.Url = "https://testcrm.ifdtestsystem.com/MSCrmServices/2007/CrmService.asmx";  service.CrmAuthenticationTokenValue = token;  //service.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;  service.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("Bill", "Password");      // Create an account entity and assign data to some attributes.  account newAccount = new account();  newAccount.name = "Greg Bike Store";  newAccount.accountnumber = "123456";  newAccount.address1_postalcode = "98052";  newAccount.address1_city = "Redmond";      // Call the Create method to create an account.  Guid accountId = service.Create(newAccount);  


Solution:1

When using SPLA (IFD) you need to also populate the token with a crmticket.The ticket can be retrieved by quering the CrmDiscoveryService.


Solution:2

This document contains a reasonable sample how to use CrmDiscoveryService to obtain a ticket and set up CrmService.

Note that Credentials property for the service will no longer be required as all authentication information will be inside the ticket.

Hope this helps
