[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub Qualify(
  ByVal Caller As CUserAuth,
  ByVal LeadId As String,
  ByVal Status As Integer
public void Qualify(
  CUserAuth  Caller,
  string  LeadId,
  int  Status
public: void Qualify(
  CUserAuth*  Caller,
  String*  LeadId,
  long  Status



Specifies the identity of the caller. To perform this action, the caller must have the prvWriteLead privilege and access rights on the object to be qualified. See CUserAuth.


Specifies the ID of the lead to be qualified.


Specifies the status of the lead. You can use this parameter to specify application status. See Remarks.

Return Value

No return value.


Note   The Status parameter corresponds to Status Reason in the Microsoft CRM application. If you pass -1 for this parameter, the platform sets the status to the appropriate value for the Microsoft CRM application. You can use the RetrieveStatus method to retrieve the status codes used in the application.

If there is an error, SOAP throws an exception and the error message is reported in System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException.Detail.OuterXml.

All IDs passed to the platform are GUIDs wrapped in braces. For example: {6522D89A-A752-4455-A2B0-51494C6957C3}


// strServer should be set with the name of the platform Web server
string strServer = "myservername";

// virtualDirectory should be set with the name of the Microsoft CRM
// virtual directory on the platform Web server
string virtualDirectory = "mscrmservices";
string strDir = "http://" + strServer + "/" + virtualDirectory + "/";

// BizUser proxy object
Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Proxy.BizUser bizUser = new Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Proxy.BizUser ();
bizUser.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
bizUser.Url = strDir + "BizUser.srf";

// CRMLead proxy object
Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Proxy.CRMLead lead = new Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Proxy.CRMLead ();
lead.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
lead.Url = strDir + "CRMLead.srf";

string strErrorMsg;
string strLeadId = "{0876468B-8FC4-4381-8D81-C0B4D05E9386}";
   Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Proxy.CUserAuth userAuth = bizUser.WhoAmI();

   // Now qualify the lead
   lead.Qualify(userAuth, strLeadId, -1);
catch (System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException err)
   // Process the platform error here
   strErrorMsg = ("ErrorMessage: " + err.Message + " " + err.Detail.OuterXml + " Source: " + err.Source );
catch (Exception err)
   // Process other errors here
   strErrorMsg = ("ErrorMessage: " + err.Message );
