  • You can add any HTML or JS webresource that you want to.  The trial version doesn't put any limitation on this, but you are going to run into Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) issues.  If the service you are calling supports JSONP, you may be able to go that route.  Better still would be to configure CORS on the service.

  • Hello,

    One other viable solution is you trigger the webservice call via a Plugin - JScript triggers the event required for the Plugin to run. Can potentially lead to loop issues though, so on formload wouldn't be recommended, unless you develop some logic that prevents the onload action to run multiple times.

    I would rather go with a Ribbon button trigger an event on a dummy field in the form and perform the call via Plugin.
