Overview

The following operations allow you to work with retrieve entities. Click an operation name to see details on how to use it.

OperationDescription

retrieveEntity

Returns data of an entity.
retrieveByExpandingNavigationPropertiesTo control what data from related entities is returned based on the navigation properties (Single or collection).
retrieveNavigationPropertyValuesTo retrieve individual property values and also to access the values of navigation properties (lookup fields).
retrieveSinglePropertyTo return (only) the value of a specific property for an entity.
retrieveSpecificPropertiesTo limit the properties returned from the entity.

For a sample proxy service that illustrates how to work with retrieve entities, see Sample configuration.

Operation details

Following is more information about each of the operations.

Retrieve Entity

To retrieve data of an entity, use msdynamics365.retrieveEntity.

retrieveEntity
<msdynamics365.retrieveEntity>
    <entityType>{$ctx:entityType}</entityType>
    <primaryKeyValueOrAlternateKey>{$ctx:primaryKeyValueOrAlternateKey}</primaryKeyValueOrAlternateKey>
</msdynamics365.retrieveEntity>
Properties
  • <entityType>: Mandatory. The type of an entity (i.e accounts, opportunities, contacts and etc).
  • <primaryKeyValueOrAlternateKey>: Mandatory. The primary key value of an entity or use the alternate key to retrieve the entity instead of the unique identifier ( primary key value).
Sample request

Following is a sample R EST/JSON request that can be handled by the retrieveEntity operation.

Sample Request for Retrieve Entity

       "primaryKeyValueOrAlternateKey":"00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001"
}

Retrieve Related Entities by Expanding Navigation Properties

To control what data from related entities is returned based on the navigation properties (Single or collection), use msdynamics365.retrieveByExpandingNavigationProperties.

retrieveByExpandingNavigationProperties
<msdynamics365.retrieveByExpandingNavigationProperties>
    <entityType>{$ctx:entityType}</entityType>
    <primaryKeyValue>{$ctx:primaryKeyValue}</primaryKeyValue>
    <queryParam>{$ctx:queryParam}</queryParam>
</msdynamics365.retrieveByExpandingNavigationProperties>
Properties
  • <entityType>: Mandatory. The type of an entity (i.e., accounts, opportunities, contacts etc).
  • <primaryKeyValue>: Mandatory. The primary key value of an entity.
  • <queryParam>: The query option to control what data is returned from related entities. You can use single-valued navigation properties or collection-valued navigation properties here.

Retrieve Navigation Property Values

To retrieve individual property values and also to access the values of navigation properties (lookup fields), use msdynamics365.retrieveNavigationPropertyValues.

retrieveNavigationPropertyValues
<msdynamics365.retrieveNavigationPropertyValues>
    <entityType>{$ctx:entityType}</entityType>
    <primaryKeyValue>{$ctx:primaryKeyValue}</primaryKeyValue>
    <navigationPropertyValue>{$ctx:navigationPropertyValue}</navigationPropertyValue>
    <referenceOrCountOfEntity>{$ctx:referenceOrCountOfEntity}</referenceOrCountOfEntity>
    <queryParam>{$ctx:queryParam}</queryParam>
</msdynamics365.retrieveNavigationPropertyValues>
Properties
  • <entityType>: Mandatory. The type of an entity (i.e., accounts, opportunities, contacts etc).
  • <primaryKeyValue>: Mandatory. The primary key value of an entity.
  • <navigationPropertyValue>: Mandatory. This can be either a single-valued navigation property name or a collection-valued navigation property name.
  • <referenceOrCountOfEntity>: Mandatory. Use this property if you use the collection-valued navigation property to return only references to the related entities or just a count of the related entities. Possible values are $ref or $count.
  • <queryParam>: Mandatory. Use this property if you use the single-valued navigation property to retrieve data of an entity.
