public sealed class AutoMapEntityRequest : OrganizationRequest

Message Availability

For this message to work, the caller must be connected to the server.

Usage

Pass an instance of this class to the Execute method, which returns an instance of the AutoMapEntityResponse class.

Privileges and Access Rights

To perform this action, the caller must have the privileges that are listed in AutoMapEntity Privileges.

Notes for Callers

Use this helper function after you create a new relationship. This message is provided as a productivity enhancement so that you do not have to manually add all attribute mappings. Instead, you can generate a set of likely mappings and minimize the amount of manual work to add or remove individual mappings to meet your requirements. This message will map all the attributes between the two related entities where the attribute names are identical and the types are identical. The mapping may result in some mappings that you do not want; therefore, you should always check the resulting mapping before you publish the customization.

noteNote
If you use this function where entity mappings already exist, the existing mappings are removed.
