Example

This sample shows how to enable field security for an entity.


// Connect to the Organization service. 
// The using statement assures that the service proxy will be properly disposed.
using (_serviceProxy = ServerConnection.GetOrganizationProxy(serverConfig))
{
    // This statement is required to enable early-bound type support.
    _serviceProxy.EnableProxyTypes();
    
    CreateRequiredRecords();

    // Create Field Security Profile.
    FieldSecurityProfile managersProfile = new FieldSecurityProfile();
    managersProfile.Name = "Managers";
    _profileId = _serviceProxy.Create(managersProfile);
    Console.Write("Created Profile, ");

    // Create the request object and set the monikers with the
    // teamprofiles_association relationship.
    AssociateRequest teamToProfile = new AssociateRequest
    {
        Target = new EntityReference(FieldSecurityProfile.EntityLogicalName, _profileId),
        RelatedEntities = new EntityReferenceCollection
        {
            new EntityReference(Team.EntityLogicalName, _teamId)
        },
        Relationship = new Relationship("teamprofiles_association")
    };

    // Execute the request.
    _serviceProxy.Execute(teamToProfile);

    // Create custom activity entity.

        },

    // Execute the request.
    CreateAttributeResponse messageAttributeResponse = (CreateAttributeResponse)_serviceProxy.Execute(attrReq);

    Console.Write("Message Created, ");

    // Create the field permission for the Identity attribute.
