    MS Dynamics CRM client for Nodejs

    This node module provides a set of methods to interact with MS Dynamics CRM Online services. This is a pure SOAP proxy that supports LiveId authentication.

    This module is forked from dynamicscrm-api which was created as part of KidoZen project, as a connector for its Enterprise API feature.

    Installation

    Use npm to install the module:

    > npm install dynamics-crm-xrm
    

    API

    Due to the asynchrounous nature of Nodejs, this module uses callbacks in requests. All callbacks have 2 arguments: err and data.

    function callback (err, data) {
        // err contains an Error class instance, if any
        // data contains the resulting data
    } 
    

    Constructor

    The module exports a class and its constructor requires a configuration object with following properties

    • domain: Required string. Provide domain name for the On-Premises org.

        domain : "mydomain or myIP", 
        organizationName : "myOrg",
