New features in MS CRM 2015


  1. Create / Update with just a single request

Previously, In CRM we have check if data exist then update else create data, but now using

‘UpsertRequest ‘ request we can achieve it.

Here is the example

// Define the Alternate key which uniquely identifies the record

KeyAttributeCollection acckeys = new KeyAttributeCollection();

acckeys.Add(“accountnumber”, “ASH001″);

// Create Account entity object by specifying the entity logical name and Alternate key

Entity accountEntity = new Entity(“account”,acckeys);

// Specify fields to update

accountEntity[“name”] = “Account 001″;

accountEntity[“telephone1”] = “23457567”;

// Create Upsert request

UpsertRequest upreq = new UpsertRequest();

upreq.Target = accountEntity;

// Execute Upsert request

UpsertResponse response = (UpsertResponse)_service.Execute(upreq);
