Developer resources page

Applies to Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.x

The Developer Resources page in the Dynamics 365 (online) Customer Engagement web application provides important resources. Included on this page are the web service endpoint URLs, a certificate for accessing Azure, and other organization information that you'll need during development. To access the page in the web application, click Settings > Customizations, and then click Developer Resources.

For the Organization service and Organization data service sections in this topic, the example URLs include an OrganizationName. This refers to the organization that you specify in the URL when you access the web application. For example, for Contoso.crm.dynamics.com, the OrganizationName is Contoso. ServerName refers to the name of the server, including the port number, for example, myserver or myserver:5555.

Note

The Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.0 release is not available for on-premises deployments.

Organization unique name

Shows the unique name for your organization, which is needed when interacting with the discovery service. Note that this may not be the same as the name that’s specified in the URL. This name can be found in the following properties:

  • Deployment web service: UniqueName

  • Discovery web service: UniqueName

  • Organization web service using early bound classes: Organization.UniqueName

    You can also retrieve this from the discovery service by using the RetrieveOrganizationsRequest message.

Microsoft Azure Service Bus issuer certificate

Provides a download link to the public certificate that is required to configure Azure for Dynamics 365 integration. For an on-premises or Internet-facing deployment, this information is only visible after Dynamics 365 has been configured for Azure integration.

For more information, see Azure Extensions for Dynamics 365.

Discovery service

The Discovery Service web service provides information about the organizations available on the Dynamics 365 server. This information includes the web address (URL) for each organization.

For Dynamics 365 (online)

You should generally use the Web API global discovery service because this will ignore regional groupings and allow you to retrieve available organizations world-wide. See Discover the URL for your organization using the Web API

If you want to scope the organizations to retrieve to individual regions use the following URLs to access the discovery service (use the appropriate URL for your location).

Organization data service

This Open Data (OData v2) Web service provides access to the business data of your organization by exposing a RESTAPI. This link opens the Conceptual Schema Definition Language (CSDL) document that describes how to access your data by using this API.

Warning

The Organization Data service has been deprecated and replaced by the Web API. For more information about the Web API see Use the Dynamics 365 Web API.

For Dynamics 365 (online)

Use the following URLs to access the organization data service (ODataREST endpoint):

Region URL
North America https://OrganizationName.api.crm.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc
North America 2 https://OrganizationName.api.crm9.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc
South America https://OrganizationName.api.crm2.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc
Canada https://OrganizationName.api.crm3.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc

Japan https://OrganizationName.api.crm7.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc
India https://OrganizationName.api.crm8.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc

For on-premises Dynamics 365

Use the following URL to access the organization data service (ODataREST endpoint):

http[s]://ServerName/OrganizationName/XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc

Using the WSDL

To add a service reference for these services to a Visual Studio project, you must append ?WSDL to the service URL when specifying the address in the Add Service Reference dialog box. For example, the discovery service Web Services Description Language (WSDL) address is http[s]://servername/xrmservices/2011/discovery.svc?wsdl.

The web services support SDK versioning. Specifying an SDK version in the WSDL URL indicates a scope for the amount of data to be returned in the WSDL. The syntax for web service SDK versioning ends the URL in ?singleWSDL&sdkversion=X.X. For example, the URL would be https://mydomain.crm.dynamics.com/xrmservices/2011/discovery.svc?singleWSDL&sdkversion=8.0. In this example, you would have built your application using the v8.0 .NET assemblies.
