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.

The module was named dynamicscrm-api and was created as part of KidoZen project, as a connector for its Enterprise API feature in year 2013.

The module was updated and renamed to xrm-api by Innofactor AB in 2016.

The code was exported from https://npmjs.com/ database and carefully saved in git repository preserving history as much as possible. Fork was done after trying reach original maintainers at KidoZen with propose update original package dynamicscrm-api and receiving no answer. All copyrights are preserved in LICENSE file as well in the package.json.

Main differences from original module:

  • Updated dependencies;
  • Removed not crucial dependencies (for sake of performance);
  • All calls to service return promises instead of requiring callback;
  • Added explicit support for OnPremise installations of MS Dynamics CRM;
  • Code was restructured to become more readable;

Future plans:

  • Browsers support (in progress);
  • Shortcuts for additional request types currently done via Execute method;
  • Performance improvements;
  • Documentation update;

Installation

Use npm to install the module:

> npm install xrm-api
