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

To perform this action, the caller must have privileges on the SharepointDocumentLocation and SharepointSite entities and access rights on the specified record in the Target parameter. For a list of the required privileges, see RetrieveAbsoluteAndSiteCollectionUrl Privileges.

Notes for Callers

This message works completely if your target server is SharePoint Server 2010 or SharePoint Server 2010 online. However, if your target server is SharePoint Server 2007, this message partially works where a blank value is returned for the SiteCollectionUrl property.

For SharePoint Server 2010 or SharePoint Server 2010 Online, this message works completely only if:

  • The List Component is installed on the SharePoint site collection on the target SharePoint Server.

  • The location record for the parent SharePoint site collection exists in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. In addition, the SharePointSite.IsGridPresent attribute must be set to true when you create the parent location record.

Otherwise, a blank value is returned for the SiteCollectionUrl property.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
