getGlobalContext (Client API reference)
Applies to Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement apps version 9.x
Gets the global context.
The method provides access to the global context without going through the form context. It contains an equivalent of all the methods available for the Xrm.Page.context object (now deprecated) to retrieve information specific to the client, organization or user.
To access the global context information in a standalone HTML Web resource, you should include a reference to ClientGlobalContext.js.aspx in the web resource, and then use the GetGlobalContext function. More information: GetGlobalContext function and ClientGlobalContext.js.aspx
