  • I don't think the link in the previous post is quite what you want.

    I think what you'll need to do is query the Dependency data. I've not done this exact thing before, but I think the main steps are:

    • Get the objectId of the Crm form. You can get this with a query on the systemform entity, and the objectId will be the systemformid attribute
    • Execute a RetrieveRequiredComponentsRequest to get the components required by the form. This should include the web resources used by the form

  • I'm trying to get it to work with RetrieveRequiredComponentsRequest but it is not as straight forward as I expected.

  • Thanks for you help but I could get it to work. I'm parsing the XML with link which may be not as clean but it works as well.
