CRMSalesPerson.RetrieveByTerritory Method

The RetrieveByTerritory method retrieves all salesperson objects that are assigned to a territory.


[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function RetrieveByTerritory(
  ByVal Caller As CUserAuth,
  ByVal TerritoryId As String,
  ByVal ColumnSet As String
) As String
public string RetrieveByTerritory(
  CUserAuth  Caller,
  string  TerritoryId,
  string  ColumnSet
public: String* RetrieveByTerritory(
  CUserAuth*  Caller,
  String*  TerritoryId,
  String*  ColumnSet



Specifies the identity of the caller. To perform this action, the caller must have the prvReadUser privilege and access rights on the objects to be retrieved. See CUserAuth.


Specifies the ID of the territory. See Remarks.


Specifies an XML string describing the set of columns to be retrieved. Passing an empty string or null returns all columns (Nothing or "" in VB .NET). You can find the valid column names in systemuser.xsd. See also ColumnSetXML Schema.

Return Value

Returns a String type that specifies the XML data containing the set of salesperson objects requested. The fields that are returned depend on what fields are specified in the ColumnSet parameter. This XML string is in the format

<systemusers> + systemuser1..N + </systemusers>

where the XML schema for each salesperson is described by systemuser.xsd.


The XML string returned from this method may contain multiple objects. If no objects are returned the method simply returns an XML document for the object type with no data.

The XML string returned from this method does not contain elements for fields where the value is null or contains empty strings. This improves performance by not sending more XML data than is necessary from the server to the client.

You cannot pass a null string for the TerritoryId parameter.

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}
