UserQuery (saved view) entity


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

Saved queries are business entities that define the parameters and criteria of a Microsoft Dynamics 365 database search. Saved queries support cross-entity searches. In Microsoft Dynamics 365 there are two entities available for queries against the Dynamics 365 database.

A user query, called a saved view in the application, is owned by an individual user, can be assigned and shared with other users, and can be viewed by other users depending on the query's access privileges. This is appropriate for frequently used queries that span entity types and queries that perform aggregation. A saved query, called a view in the application, is owned by an organization making it visible to all users in the organization. Saved queries (views) are used for both views defined for an entity and for filters and templates for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Outlook. For more information about saved views, see Customize entity views and Offline and Outlook filters and templates.

A query in the form of a FetchXML statement is constructed and then assigned to the UserQuery.FetchXml attribute. This query can be executed by using the ExecuteByIdUserQueryRequest message.

You can see the user query (saved view) in the Advanced Find section of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 application and also in the View drop-down list for an entity. You can export the value of the UserQuery.FetchXml attribute by using the Download Fetch XML button in the Advanced Find dialog box.
