Retrieve record using OData and JQuery in CRM 2011

February 12, 2012 11 comments

Hi,

Below is the script to read a record using OData & JQuery

function retrieveRecord(id, odataSetName) {

// Get Server URL

var serverUrl = Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl();

//The OData end-point

var ODATA_ENDPOINT = “/XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc”;

//Asynchronous AJAX function to Retrieve a CRM record using OData

$.ajax({

type: “GET”,

contentType: “application/json; charset=utf-8”,

datatype: “json”,

url: serverUrl + ODATA_ENDPOINT + “/” + odataSetName + “(guid'” + id + “‘)”,

beforeSend: function (XMLHttpRequest) {

//Specifying this header ensures that the results will be returned as JSON.

XMLHttpRequest.setRequestHeader(“Accept”, “application/json”);

},

success: function (data, textStatus, XmlHttpRequest) {

readRecord(data, textStatus, XmlHttpRequest)

},

error: function (XmlHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown) {

alert(“Error – ” + errorThrown)

}

});

}

function readRecord(data, textStatus, XmlHttpRequest) {

alert(“Record read successfully!!”);

var account = data;

alert(“Name – ” + account.d.Name);

alert(“Id – ” + account.d.AccountId);

}

How do I call this method :-

  • Below is the sample function to read Account

var accountId = “”; // Assign account GUID

var odataSetName = “AccountSet”;

retrieveRecord(accountId,odataSetName );

Hope it helps 🙂
