Microsoft Dynamics CRM Events

On this page

Cloud Elements supports events via polling or webhooks depending on the API provider. For more information about our Events framework, see Events Overview.

Supported Events and Resources

Cloud Elements supports polling events for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. After receiving an event, Cloud Elements standardizes the payload and sends an event to the configured callback URL of your authenticated element instance.

You can set up polling for the events resource. You can also copy the events configuration to poll other resources. See Configure Polling Through API for more information.

Note: Unless configured for a specific time zone, polling occurs in UTC.

Configure Polling Through the UI

To configure polling through the UI, follow the same steps to authenticate an element instance, and then turn on events. Select the resources to poll, and then click Create Instance. For more information, see Authenticate an Element Instance with Events (UI) or the element-specific authentication topic.

Configure Polling Through API

Use the /instances endpoint to authenticate with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and create an element instance with polling enabled.

{
  "event.notification.enabled": "true",
  "event.notification.callback.url": "<INSERT_YOUR_APPS_CALLBACK_URL>",
  "event.poller.configuration": "<SEE_BELOW>"
}
Note: The objects in the event.poller.configuration are the default configurations we support. Feel free to remove any objects that do not fit your needs.

Here is an example instance JSON with polling events enabled for Microsoft Dynamics 2016 and later:

Please note that when creating an instance via the APIs with Polling configuration, the double quotes will need to be escaped and it should not contain any new line characters. The above examples have omitted this formatting for readability.
