Dynamics CRM 2011 using the old MSCRMService Endpoint under IFD - Impossible to connect! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have CRM 2011 IFD but need to use old MSCRMService temporarily.

    I have learnt that we need to get a token as if we try to use the endpoint /2007/...asmx we get a 401 error.

    Can someone please show me some code that works? I have spent all day trying to find this code.

    I am using... but still get 401 error?

    using System;
    using System.Configuration;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Security;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
    using System.Net;
    using Microsoft.Crm.Sdk;
    using Microsoft.Crm.SdkTypeProxy;
    using Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Query;
    using Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Metadata;
    using Microsoft.Win32;
    using MSCRMService;

    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


        protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                string UserName = "xxxx";
                string Password = "xxxxxx";
                string Domain = "HANEN";
                string orgName = "crm-test";

                string crmServerURL = "https://crm-test.<server>:4444";

                CrmService service = null;
                CrmDiscoveryService disco = new CrmDiscoveryService();
                disco.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(UserName, Password, Domain);
                disco.Url = String.Concat(crmServerURL, "/MSCrmServices/2007/CrmService.asmx");

                RetrieveOrganizationsRequest OrgRequest = new RetrieveOrganizationsRequest();
                OrgRequest.Password = Password;
                OrgRequest.UserId = Domain + "\\" + UserName;
                RetrieveOrganizationsResponse OrgResponse = (RetrieveOrganizationsResponse)disco.Execute(OrgRequest);

                foreach (OrganizationDetail OrgDetail in OrgResponse.OrganizationDetails)
                    if (OrgDetail.OrganizationName.ToLower().Equals(orgName))
                        //Retrieve the ticket.
                        RetrieveCrmTicketRequest ticketRequest = new RetrieveCrmTicketRequest();
                        ticketRequest.OrganizationName = OrgDetail.OrganizationName;
                        ticketRequest.UserId = Domain + "\\" + UserName;
                        ticketRequest.Password = Password;
                        RetrieveCrmTicketResponse ticketResponse = (RetrieveCrmTicketResponse)disco.Execute(ticketRequest);

                        // Setup the Authentication Token
                        CrmAuthenticationToken token = CrmAuthenticationToken.ExtractCrmAuthenticationToken(HttpContext.Current,OrgDetail.OrganizationName);
                        token.OrganizationName = OrgDetail.OrganizationName;
                        token.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationType.Spla; //2
                        token.CrmTicket = ticketResponse.CrmTicket;

                        //Setup Service
                        service = new CrmService();
                        service.Url = OrgDetail.CrmServiceUrl;
                        service.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
                        service.CrmAuthenticationTokenValue = token;

                        //Create the lead object as usual. 
                        lead lead = new lead();
                        lead.subject = "Lorem";
                        lead.firstname = "John";
                        lead.lastname = "Smith";
                        lead.companyname = "Ipsum";

                        //Assign the owner as the caller ID from the token. 
                        //If you don't do this, the owner will be SYSTEM. 
                        lead.ownerid = new Owner();
                        lead.ownerid.type = EntityName.systemuser.ToString();
                        lead.ownerid.Value = token.CallerId;

                        //Create the lead on Skype. 
                        Guid leadid = service.Create(lead);
                        //Display the GUID. 
                        Label1.Text = leadid.ToString();

  • Yep. I found by using the local address http://<serverName>:5555/<orgname>/.... it worked.

    I do not know how to aproach if the CRM was on a different domain or location.

    Hope this helps.
