Consume Web-request from Plugin


Generally, CRM not works alone, it includes many other application, such time we needs to move data from one application to another. In this situation we needs integration; We do integration with either “HttpWebRequest” or “BasicHttpBinding”. 

Explore “HttpWebRequest” implementation here .

To consume web-service using “BasicHttpBinding”, I used following way.

  1. Created a proxy class for web request
  2. Consumed service

To create proxy class, I used ‘svcutil.exe’ utility. Follow following steps to create proxy class

  1. Open Visual Studio’s command prompt (ref image 1 below), also it will work as expected on normal command prompt
  2. Execute ‘exe /language:cs /out:generatedProxy.cs your WSDL service URL’ command. Ref Image 2 below

It will create proxy class and will be stored your local machine. (In my case it was ‘Test’ folder). Ref below screen shot…

Now, here is the code sample to execute web-request.

private static XDocument BuildRequest(string url, string requestStr, Entity Config)
 //requestStr = testRequest();
 XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();

 BasicHttpBinding basichttpBinding = new BasicHttpBinding();
 basichttpBinding.Name = "BasicHttpBinding_IPOCService";
 basichttpBinding.Security.Mode = BasicHttpSecurityMode.TransportCredentialOnly;
 basichttpBinding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = HttpClientCredentialType.Windows;
 basichttpBinding.MaxBufferSize = 22065536;
 basichttpBinding.MaxReceivedMessageSize = 22065536;
 basichttpBinding.TransferMode = TransferMode.Buffered;

 EndpointAddress endPointAddress = new EndpointAddress(url);
//Below code will be as per web service 
 ServicesClient client = new ServicesClient(basichttpBinding, endPointAddress);

 EncryptPassword enp = new EncryptPassword();

 client.ClientCredentials.Windows.ClientCredential.Domain = Config.Contains("soft_domain") ? Config.Attributes["soft_domain"].ToString() : "";
 client.ClientCredentials.Windows.ClientCredential.UserName = Config.Contains("soft_namespace") ? Config.Attributes["new_namespace"].ToString() : "";
 client.ClientCredentials.Windows.ClientCredential.Password = Config.Contains("soft_passcode") ? enp.Decrypt(Config.Attributes["soft_passcode"].ToString()) : "";

 XDocument xDoc = null;
 //Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor;
 if (xmlDoc.DocumentElement.LocalName == "S****Request")
 S****Request synchRequest = new SynchRequest();
 s****Request = XmlDeserialize<S****Request>(requestStr, "S****Request", "");
 S****Response response = client.GenerateS****(synchRequest);

 xDoc = XDocument.Parse(XmlSerialize<S****Response>(response));
 else if (xmlDoc.DocumentElement.LocalName == "S****StoreRequest")
 S****StoreRequest s****StoreRequest = new S****StoreRequest();
 s****StoreRequest = XmlDeserialize<S****StoreRequest>(requestStr, xmlDoc.DocumentElement.LocalName, xmlDoc.DocumentElement.NamespaceURI);
 S****StoreResponse response = client.GenerateS****Store(s****StoreRequest);
 xDoc = XDocument.Parse(XmlSerialize<S****StoreResponse>(response));
 xDoc = null;
 throw new Exception("Invalid Request.");

 return xDoc;
