MSCRM Online integration without Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to trigger a 3rd party web services call in MSCRM online.

    For example, call an external web service when a contact is created / updated.  Can I do so without Azure?

    Any help is highly appreciated.  Thanks.

  • You can do without Azure,

    normally you will call the external web service inside a plugin (triggered when the contact is created/updated)

    due to CRM Online limitations, the plugin must run in sandbox, for the call of the external webservice this means:

    Only the HTTP and HTTPS protocols are allowed.
    Access to localhost (loopback) is not permitted.
    IP addresses cannot be used. You must use a named web address that requires DNS name resolution.
    Anonymous authentication is supported and recommended. There is no provision for prompting the logged on user for credentials or saving those credentials.
