I am building a Web Service (ASP.NET Core) which occasionally needs to connect to D365 Customer Engagement (Sales) Online, and retrieve or update CRM information there.
I have not done this before, but I am familiar using the Organization Service API from C# to connect from console/desktop apps and doing similar things.
And I know there is also a Web API available, that I have not used before.
What is the available options and recommended one to connect to D365CE-CRM from the Cloud (Web Services)?
Are there any hints about it, or some quickstart available to suggest?
Thanks in advance,
At the moment there is only .Net Framework version of XrmTooling available that can't be used with .Net Core app. So here you have 2 alternatives:
1. Use .Net Core version of XrmTooling that is in Alpha - powerusers.microsoft.com/.../470035 and it's not recommended to use it in produtive applications.
2. Use pure WebApi - docs.microsoft.com/.../quick-start-console-app-csharp
I see. Thank you Andrew.
Does this mean that skipping NET Core and going with NET Framework alone will allow me to work with Xrm Tooling?
If you want to use .Net Core you can check option 2 - it's doable using .Net Core.
If my reply (or replies) answers your question take a minute and verify the answer. You can do it by clicking "Yes" at the top of the reply (or replies) under the label "Does this answer your question?"
Thank you Andrew,
I will probably try the XrmTooling for NET Framework first, as I feel more comfortable with it,
and will report the experience or come back again with questions.
