Discover the URL for your organization using the Organization Service

 

The IDiscoveryService Web service is used to determine the organizations that a user is a member of, and the endpoint address URL to access the IOrganizationService Web service for each of those organizations. This discovery service is necessary because Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a multi-tenant environment—a single Microsoft Dynamics CRM server can host multiple business organizations. By using the discovery Web service, your application can determine the endpoint address URL to access the target organization’s business data.

For Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2016 Update and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 (on-premises) installations, server and organization allocation may change as part of datacenter management and load balancing. Therefore, the IDiscoveryService Web service provides a way to discover which Microsoft Dynamics CRM server is serving your organization at a given time.

The following table lists the Web service URLs for the worldwide Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online data centers.

For an Internet-facing deployment (IFD) installation, the Web service URL has the following form:

https://dev.< hostname[:port]>/XRMServices/2011/Discovery.svc

For an on-premises installation, the web service URL has the following form:

http[s]://< hostname[:port]>/XRMServices/2011/Discovery.svc

Consult the Developer Resources page in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Web application for the correct URL of your installation.

To use the IDiscoveryService Web service, add a reference to the Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll assembly to your Microsoft Visual Studio project, and then add a using or imports statement to access the Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Discovery namespace. Alternatively, you can add the service references for the URLs described previously to your project.
