This sample code is for December 2016 update for Dynamics 365 (online and on-premises). This code can be found at the following location on Github:


This sample requires the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) and other packages. These packages are automatically downloaded and installed when you load the project’s solution. For this to work, you must have an active internet connection when loading and building the sample.

In addition to having access to a Dynamics 365 organization to run the sample against, you will also need either a Microsoft Azure subscription for use with Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) or an ADFS administration account for use with Dynamics 365 (on-premises) (IFD).

This code sample targets an iPhone running iOS 9 or later and XCode 7.3 or later using the Swift 2 programming language.


Activity Tracker app for iOS

The activity tracker sample application enables you to connect to your Dynamics 365 organization, query for your contacts, and add a quick activity record related to a contact.

Use this sample’s source code as a starting point to build your own apps that can access the Dynamics 365 web services. This sample uses the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL), and the Web API using OData v4.

For this code to work, you must first register your app with a supported identity provider ( AD FS or Microsoft Azure Active Directory). For more information on registering an app with Active Directory, see Walkthrough: Register a Dynamics 365 app with Active Directory. For more detailed information on the sample and instructions on how to build and run it, see the app’s README.
