Use Script (JavaScript) web resources to create a library of JavaScript functions that can be accessed from anywhere.

With Script web resources, you can more efficiently manage code used in form scripts, webpage (HTML) web resources, or ribbon commands by linking them to shared library of JavaScript functions.

Like all web resources, script web resources use the Microsoft Dynamics 365 web application security context. Only licensed Microsoft Dynamics 365 users who have the necessary privileges can access them.


References included in code between web resources aren’t tracked as solution dependencies.

For information about developing and testing JavaScript libraries as well as how to associate them with ribbon commands and form events, see JavaScript libraries for Microsoft Dynamics 365.

All web resources can use relative URLs to reference each other. In the following example, for the webpage web resource new_/content/contentpage.htm to reference the script web resource new_/scripts/myScript.js, add the following HTML code to the head element of new_/content/contentpage.htm.

<script type="text/jscript" src="../scripts/myScript.js"></script>

To reference a script from a different publisher, the path must include the customization prefix for that publisher. For example, for the new_/content/contentpage.htm page to reference the MyIsv_/scripts/customscripts.js page, the src attribute value should be ../../MyIsv_/scripts/customscripts.js.
