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.

Console.WriteLine("Enabling auditing on the organization and account entities.");

// Enable auditing on the organization.
// First, get the organization's ID from the system user record.
Guid orgId = ((WhoAmIResponse)_service.Execute(new WhoAmIRequest())).OrganizationId;

// Next, retrieve the organization's record.
Organization org = _service.Retrieve(Organization.EntityLogicalName, orgId,
    new ColumnSet(new string[] { "organizationid", "isauditenabled" })) as Organization;

// Finally, enable auditing on the organization.
bool organizationAuditingFlag = org.IsAuditEnabled.Value;
org.IsAuditEnabled = true;

// Enable auditing on account entities.
bool accountAuditingFlag = EnableEntityAuditing(Account.EntityLogicalName, true);
