Updated: November 29, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

Contains the data that is needed to convert a query, which is represented as a QueryExpression class, to its equivalent query, which is represented as FetchXML.

For the Web API use the QueryExpressionToFetchXml Action .

Web API support for this message was added with December 2016 update for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) and December 2016 Service Pack for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (on-premises) .

Message Availability

This message works regardless whether the caller is connected to the server or offline.

Usage

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

Privileges and Access Rights

For a complete list of the required privileges, see QueryExpressionToFetchXml message privileges.

Notes for Callers

Use of the keyword distinct in query expressions is different from the FetchXML query language. When you map a query from Fetch to QueryExpression, you receive inconsistent results if you use the Distinct keyword in the FetchXML string.

The following example shows how to use this message. For this sample to work correctly, you must be connected to the server to get an IOrganizationService interface. For the complete sample, see the link later in this topic.



// Build a query expression that we will turn into FetchXML.
var queryExpression = new QueryExpression()
{
    Distinct = false,
    EntityName = Contact.EntityLogicalName,
    ColumnSet = new ColumnSet("fullname", "address1_telephone1"),
    LinkEntities = 
        {
            new LinkEntity 
            {
                JoinOperator = JoinOperator.LeftOuter,
                LinkFromAttributeName = "parentcustomerid",
                LinkFromEntityName = Contact.EntityLogicalName,
                LinkToAttributeName = "accountid",
                LinkToEntityName = Account.EntityLogicalName,
                LinkCriteria = 
                {
                    Conditions = 
                    {
                        new ConditionExpression("name", ConditionOperator.Equal, "Litware, Inc.")
                    }
                }
            }
        },
    Criteria =

        Filters = 
            {
                new FilterExpression
                {
                    FilterOperator = LogicalOperator.And,
                    Conditions = 
                    {
                        new ConditionExpression("address1_stateorprovince", ConditionOperator.Equal, "WA"),
                        new ConditionExpression("address1_city", ConditionOperator.In, new String[] {"Redmond", "Bellevue" , "Kirkland", "Seattle"}),
                        new ConditionExpression("createdon", ConditionOperator.LastXDays, 30),
                        new ConditionExpression("emailaddress1", ConditionOperator.NotNull)
                    },
                },
                new FilterExpression
                {
                    FilterOperator = LogicalOperator.Or,
                    Conditions =
                    {
                        new ConditionExpression("address1_telephone1", ConditionOperator.Like, "(206)%"),
                        new ConditionExpression("address1_telephone1", ConditionOperator.Like, "(425)%")
                    }
                }
            }
    }
};

// Run the query as a query expression.
EntityCollection queryExpressionResult =
    _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(queryExpression);
Console.WriteLine("Output for query as QueryExpression:");
DisplayContactQueryResults(queryExpressionResult);

// Convert the query expression to FetchXML.
var conversionRequest = new QueryExpressionToFetchXmlRequest
{
    Query = queryExpression
};
var conversionResponse =
    (QueryExpressionToFetchXmlResponse)_serviceProxy.Execute(conversionRequest);

// Use the converted query to make a retrieve multiple request to Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
String fetchXml = conversionResponse.FetchXml;
var fetchQuery = new FetchExpression(fetchXml);
EntityCollection result = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(fetchQuery);

// Display the results.
Console.WriteLine("\nOutput for query after conversion to FetchXML:");
DisplayContactQueryResults(result);
