Hello, I am completely new in Dynamics 365. I need to create new field for entity 'Company', for example 'CompanyName'. How should I do that? I understood that I need to use 'CreateAttributeRequest' but I couldn't find full example of using this class. I found only parts like this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.xrm.sdk.messages.createattributerequest?view=dynamics-general-ce-9. There isn't link on full example, unfortunately.
1. How should I create instance of class which implements IOrganizationService? Which class should I use?
2. Should I check if my new 'CompanyName' field already exist?
3. How plugins like this generally works? Should I register them for some action? Do I need connection string or not?
In Dynamics, the Company is usually represented by the Account, so you do not need to create it.
There is a lookup field called Company Name, which can be an Account or a Contact.
If you insist on using plug-in, here is a documentation about how to write and register a plug-in.

Hi EaredGen - welcome to Dynamics 365! This specific forum is for Dynamics 365 Guides, which is a mixed reality app for creating holographic guides and training. It integrates with the rest of the Dynamics ecosystem and I hope you have an opportunity to use it in the future. In the meantime I'm not familiar with the API you referenced but you may get better traction with your questions on the CRM forum or Power Apps communities, per the response from Nya. Good luck!
