Example

This sample shows how to enable field security for an entity.


// Connect to the Organization service. 
// The using statement assures that the service proxy will be properly disposed.
using (_serviceProxy = ServerConnection.GetOrganizationProxy(serverConfig))
{
    // This statement is required to enable early-bound type support.
    _serviceProxy.EnableProxyTypes();
    
    CreateRequiredRecords();

    // Create Field Security Profile.
    FieldSecurityProfile managersProfile = new FieldSecurityProfile();
    managersProfile.Name = "Managers";
    _profileId = _serviceProxy.Create(managersProfile);
    Console.Write("Created Profile, ");

    // Create the request object and set the monikers with the
    // teamprofiles_association relationship.
