Build queries with FetchXML
Applies To: CRM 2016 on-prem, CRM Online
FetchXML is a proprietary query language that is used in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2016 Update and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 (on-premises). It’s based on a schema that describes the capabilities of the language. The FetchXML language supports similar query capabilities as query expressions. In addition, it’s used as a serialized form of query, used to save a query as a user-owned saved view in the userquery entity and as an organization-owned saved view in the savedquery entity.
