  1. Fix up "Auto format JavaScript code on download from CRM" to support ES6

    Some of our JavaScript code currently uses features that were introduced in ES6 and ES2015, these include arrow functions and template literals.

    When we have the "Auto format JavaScript code on download from CRM" enabled in the XrmToolkit Options it breaks our code.

    The formatting adds a space between arrow functions, so "=>" becomes "= >".

    Additionally, new lines and spaces are added within strings created using template literals which completely breaks them.

    I'd be happy to provide a video demonstrating this if necessary.

    Thanks!

  3. Automatically validate strong name

    Sometimes when using ILMerge, the strong name is not valid when the dll is created. It would be a nice feature to validate the strong name first before uploading. And if the strong name is not valid, automatically resign the dll to fix the issue.

    1.) Run sn -vf *.dll
    2.) Confirm that the dll is either a delay or test signed
    3.) Run sn -R *.dll *.snk
    4.) Confirm that the dll is now valid

  4. CRM data model in source control

    We would like to have crm data model to be kept in TFS including entities and fields. We want to track/version any changes on the data model, associate these changes with proper workitem in source control.

  5. Add summary comments to generated public/protected code

    In our environment warnings are generated during deployment if any public or protected class, method, or property has no summary and param comments. We use Swagger which utilizes these comments.

    For Example:

    /// <summary>
    /// Gets the error string.
    /// </summary>
    /// <returns>The error string.</returns>
    /// <param name="attributeName">Attribute name.</param>
    /// <param name="defaultErrorType">Default error type.</param>
    protected override string GetErrorString(string attributeName, BaseProxyClass.eErrorType defaultErrorType)
    {
    if (_errorStrings.ContainsKey(attributeName))
    {
    return _errorStrings[attributeName];
    }
    return defaultErrorType == BaseProxyClass.eErrorType.Text ? TextError : NumberError;
    }

  8. extract interface from class with comments

    When you want to create an interface for a class you can use the helper "extract interface" on the class definition. This does not copy the leading comments used with tools such as Swagger; i.e. the comment block created with the three forward slashes ///

    For example:
    /// <summary>
    /// Configuration manager
    /// </summary>
    protected readonly IConfigurationKeyManager _configurationKeyManager;

  9. Ability to register plugin as data provider

    I would like the possibility to register a plugin as data provider. Data providers are used in virtual entities.

  10. Ability to register service end point and web hook using plug in registeration tool

    Like native SDK plug in registration tool that allows registering for service end point and web hook; it would be nice to have the similar setup within XrmToolkit for Visual studio

  11. Generate POCO or DTO early binding classes

    Generate POCO or DTO early binding classes which do not have any references to the SDK. Any 1:n relationships are created as Property LIST<MyEntity>. Any Optionsets are generated as enums in separate file so there are no duplicates (i.e. status and statusReason ). The ability for these POCO classes to then generate an XSD without error. At run time AutoMapper could map from POCO to ProxyClasses

  12. Support versioning of custom workflow assemblies

    It would be nice if XrmToolkit supported the concept of versioning workflow assemblies in Dynamics. If you increment the major or minor build number of a workflow assembly, you can register a new copy of that workflow assembly with that new version and then switch over the workflows to the new version at your leisure. Here's an article on how it works: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/developer/workflow/update-custom-workflow-activity-using-assembly-versioning

  13. Add Actions and Views to generated proxy classes

    It would be great to be able to select Actions and Views to automatically generate their own proxy classes. For Actions, it would generate a strongly-typed proxy that accepted the typed parameters and returned the output parameters. For Views, it would generate a proxy that lets you quickly get results from System Views on each entity by just querying that View proxy. This way you could quickly model queries in Dynamics in the Advanced Find and then easily reference them in code.

  14. Execute publish and connection in parallel

    Connecting to online instances of D365 can be a little slow so waiting for this step to complete before compiling and then uploading assembly/code is time consuming. I suggesting starting the connection attempt and building the project (plugin) at the same time, once they are both complete, upload. This will save 10-15 seconds per publish which happens a ton of times over the course of a work day.

  15. Publishing loader message pop-up is shifted to the right of the screen instead of center of screen

    Hi Team,
    I have updated to the latest version of xrmtoolkit from version 5.1.0.0
    Publishing loader message pop-up is shifted to the right of the screen instead of center of screen. Although minor but could be corrected in the upcoming versions.
    Thanks,
    Anubhav

  16. Ensure correct DateTime operations

    Ensure correct DateTime operations. Now Dynamics CRM supports two mode of working with dateTime attributes.
    With or without UTC conversion.

    It would be nice if generated proxy will take it into consideration.

  17. Add CalculateRollup function to early binding of a rollup field.

    It would be great if I could Execute a CalculateRollupRequest if the field is a rollup field. Currently I have to extend the proxy class and so I could call the function. It could work similar to how lookup fields can RetrieveProxy<T> i.e. contactRecord.new_rollupfield.Rollup(OrganizationService) would execute the function.

  18. Easily update all proxy classes

    Currently, there is no easy way to update all the existing proxy classes (with their respective option sets). Right now I have to select all the class files in the solution explorer, right click, then click 'CRM -> Regenerate...'

    Maybe there could be an option group called 'Proxy Classes' in the context menu for the project where you can either add proxy classes or regenerate all

  19. Provide NamingServiceExtension for proxy classes

    Currently it is not possible to adapt the name of proxy classes during generation.
    Please provide an extension to provide custom names for proxy classes and properties.

    Some generated names does not fit our naming conventions. For example special chars in german ("ß", "ä","ö" ...) or properties which will start in lower case or underscores in names.

    It would be awesome to have the possibility to extend the INamingService implentation of XrmToolKit.

  20. Have an option to automatically disable work flows when publishing new ones

    Straight forward instead of manually having to deactivate all of these workflows. Maybe there's a way to remotely deactivate them publish and reactivate them.
