I am just evaluating Contour and always get an error message, when creating the Web Service data source to access Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.
According to the adverts, it should be possible out of the box, but I cannot find any further information on the internet.
Can someone please provide an example?
I would love to know this, too. It's great to say it can do it, but an example would be nice.
I'm at a similar point to Christian, above. I have a client who has purchased Contour on the basis that it does integrate with Microsoft CRM (the website here states 'Contour makes it easy to save your form entries on other databases such as SQL Server and Access. The program also easily integrates your data into systems such as Microsoft CRM or Salesforce via web services. For example, it only takes a few clicks to drag a table from another database and take it online.')
Even attempting to use Microsoft's own development web services, they haven't been able to get past what seems to be a generic error - see below:
Has anyone successfully created a Contour Data Source using Microsoft Dynamics CRM? @timgeyssens - I'm hoping that you or someone else has the answer! :)
@Dano, where can I find some more details on the available dev web services, would need one that writes data
I don't believe that the CRM web services will ever succeed as they are a) WCF services, and b) use either claims-based or AD authentication. Delving into the Contour code, it's clear that it can only currently handle ASMX services.
So I created a simple ASMX web service that wrapped up my CRM calls. Contour can now create a data source using this service however I am now stuck on retrieving fields to render in a form. Are there specific data types that Contour expects the fields to be in?
Hi Michelle,Did you come up with a solution for this? Or anyone for that matter??
We've had to go an alternate solution in that all of our form data will remain in Umbraco (created using the default form wizard - no association with any data source) and then we've created a custom workflow type to push the data we need into CRM during the different form stages.
Getting Contour to render CRM forms itself will require a lot of hacking!
Hi guys, I take it that no one managed to get Contour talking to Dynamics CRM in the end?
We really want to build a custom datasource that will do the connection, and am trying to find the contour shared source code that is always mentioned as a base example, but it no longer exists at this url:https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/umbraco-contour-shared-source
Any ideas anyone?
