An entity attribute is a container for a piece of data in an entity. In the Microsoft Dynamics 365 SDK documentation the term “attribute” and “property” (class property) are often used interchangeably with the term “entity attribute.” The Microsoft Dynamics 365 application uses the term “field” when it refers to entity attributes.

The following table lists the messages that you can use to perform actions on entity attributes.
