Processing the results of a SOAP Execute message into JavaScript objects representing the returned entities

Posted on by

Hi all

This seems like it should've been done a thousand times, yet I'm not finding any good examples? Or maybe I'm searching for the wrong things...

Essentially, I execute aExecuteQuickFind request, and need to parse the results into usable JavaScript objects representing the returned entity records.

Request:

<request xmlns:a="schemas.microsoft.com/.../Contracts">
 <a:Parameters xmlns:b="schemas.datacontract.org/.../System.Collections.Generic">
  <a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>
   <b:key>SearchText</b:key>
   <b:value i:type="c:string" xmlns:c="www.w3.org/.../XMLSchema">test</b:value>
  </a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>
  <a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>
   <b:key>EntityNames</b:key>
   <b:value i:type="c:ArrayOfstring" xmlns:c="schemas.microsoft.com/.../Arrays">
    <c:string>account</c:string>
    <c:string>contact</c:string>
   </b:value>
  </a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>
 </a:Parameters>
 <a:RequestId i:nil="true" />
 <a:RequestName>ExecuteQuickFind</a:RequestName>
</request>

And I get back the following response: 

 <s:Body>
  <ExecuteResponse xmlns="schemas.microsoft.com/.../Services">

I need some representation of the return "account" and "contact" records that preserves their data types as much as possible. 

Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks Aric - this would be first prize, but I can't see how to do the ExecuteQuickFind using WebAPI? Could you provide a link or an example? I did look into using the SaveQuery via WebAPI, but I can't see how to pass any additional parameters (e.g. the search term) to them?

    Why don't you use CRM 2016 webapi? This is the way you should be querying CRM data now.
