Download the endpoints using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Developer resources page

Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem, CRM Online

The Developer Resources page in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 Update web application provides important resources. Included on this page are the web service endpoint URLs, a certificate for accessing Microsoft Azure, and other organization information that you'll need during development. To access the page in the web application, choose Settings > Customizations, and then choose Developer Resources.

For the “Organization service” and “Organization data service” sections in this topic, the example URLs include an OrganizationName. This refers to the organization that you specify in the URL when you access the web application. For example, for Contoso.crm.dynamics.com, the OrganizationName is Contoso. ServerName refers to the name of the server, including the port number, for example, myserver or myserver:5555.

Organization unique name

Shows the unique name for your organization, which is needed when interacting with the discovery service. Note that this may not be the same as the name that is specified in the URL. This name can be found in the following properties:

  • Deployment web service: UniqueName

  • Discovery web service: UniqueName

  • Organization web service using early bound classes: Organization.UniqueName

You can also retrieve this from the discovery service by using the RetrieveOrganizationsRequest message.

Microsoft Azure Service Bus issuer certificate

Provides a download link to the public certificate that is required to configure Microsoft Azure for Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration. For an on-premises or Internet-facing deployment, this information is only visible after CRM has been configured for Azure integration.

For more information, see Azure extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Walkthrough: Configure CRM for integration with Microsoft Azure.

Developer center

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Developer Center or crmdevelopercenter.com contains a wealth of information to help developers. Here you’ll find the Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK, which includes documentation, samples, and tools, as well as technical articles, ramp up kits, videos, blogs, forums, and more.

Discovery service

The IDiscoveryService web service provides information about the organizations available on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server using the SOAP protocol. This information includes the web address (URL) for each organization. For more information, see Discover the URL for your organization with IDiscoveryService web service.

Use the following URLs to access the discovery service (use the appropriate URL for your location).

Use the following URLs to access the organization service (SOAP endpoint):


Organization data service

This Open Data (OData) Web service provides access to the business data of your organization by exposing a RESTAPI. This link opens the Conceptual Schema Definition Language (CSDL) document that describes how to access your data by using this API. For more information, see Use the OData endpoint with Ajax and JScript web resources, and Use the OData endpoint with Ajax and JScript web resources.

Use the following URLs to access the organization data service (ODataREST endpoint):

https://OrganizationName.api.crm.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (North America)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm4.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (EMEA)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm5.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (APAC)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm2.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (South America)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm6.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (Oceania)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm7.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (Japan)

https://OrganizationName.api.crm9.dynamics.com/XrmServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc (North America 2)

Use the following URL to access the organization data service (ODataREST endpoint):


Using the WSDL

To add a service reference for these services to a Microsoft Visual Studio project, you must append ?WSDL to the service URL when specifying the address in the Add Service Reference dialog box. For example, the discovery service Web Services Description Language (WSDL) address is http://servername/xrmservices/2011/discovery.svc?wsdl.

Starting with CRM Online 2015 Update 1, the web services support SDK versioning. Specifying an SDK version in the WSDL URL indicates a scope for the amount of data to be returned in the WSDL. The syntax for web service SDK versioning ends the URL in ?singleWSDL&sdkversion=X.X. For the 2015 Update 1 release, the URL would be https://mydomain.crm.dynamics.com/xrmservices/2011/discovery.svc?singleWSDL&sdkversion=7.1. In this example, you would have built your application using the CRM SDK v7.1 assemblies.
