{Quick Tip} Check organization name in Dynamics CRM Plugin

User Review

In a rather interesting scenario recently there was a need to validate organization name in a plugin. This was for a reusable component used for several of our clients and we wanted to make sure that the organization that can use this component is amongst our clients.

So, we needed a way to validate organization name that are using this plugin and then only allow the use of the component in case we have installed the component.

We needed a code solution!


On some research came to know about the following property in plugin context:


   public void Execute(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)


            #region initialize

            IPluginExecutionContext context;

            ITracingService tracingService;

            IOrganizationServiceFactory serviceFactory;

            IOrganizationService service;


            // Get a reference to the tracing service.

            tracingService = (ITracingService)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(ITracingService));


           // Obtain the execution context from the service provider.

            context = (IPluginExecutionContext)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IPluginExecutionContext));

if (context.OrganizationName != “organisationname”)


//Run code here







Other 2 interesting properties I wanted to tell about below:

context.IsExecutingOffline (Check if plugin is executing offline)

context.OperationCreatedOn (Check operation creation date)

Hope it helps and Happy CRMing!
