Get Plugin Registration tool and assemblies from NuGet Packages for Dynamics 365 , v9.0

With the release of Dynamics 365 (online), version 9.0, there are a lot of changes in our developer documentation:
No more monolithic SDK download : Getting the assemblies and tools you need
SDK assemblies and tools will be distributed only via NuGet. We will provide a script that will allow you to download the assemblies and tools from NuGet.

You can follow below steps to download Nuget Packages using Visual studio

Step 1 Right Click on to your visual studio project and click on to manage NuGet Packages

Step 2 Search for "Microsoft.CrmSdk.XrmTooling.PluginRegistrationTool" and click on install

Click on I accept

Step 3 Navigate to the package directory of that project

Step 4 Search the folder Microsoft.CrmSdk.XrmTooling.PluginRegistrationTool.X.0.0.X

Done!! now you will be having your latest Plugin registration Tool

Sample PRT Reference for quick start  : Microsoft.CrmSdk.XrmTooling.PluginRegistrationTool.

In the same way you can download any of the NuGet assemblies and tools

Hope it helps !!

Happy CRMing

There are two parts to successfully run a plugin in MSCRM

1) Create Your Plugin
2) Resister your plugin

Plugin Creation

Step 1 - Open Visual studio

Step 2 - Go to File - New - and Click on Project

Step 3 - A dialogue will appear, from left navigation panel select Class Library template in Visual C#  and Enter Project and Solution name and hit on OK Button

Step 4 - Visual studio will create and open a blank class library template.Right Click on Project and click on Add References option

Step 5 - Reference Manager dialogue will open.From left navigation panel go to Assemblies - Framework then select two references and click on OK button
2) System.ServiceModel

Step 6 -  Right Click on Project and again click on Add References option, then in Reference Manager dialogue from left navigation panel go to Browse - Click on Browse button then select two references
2) System.ServiceModel

Step 7 -  After Click on Browse button go to your sdk (downloaded from prerequisites) - bin, then select the following dlls files and click on add and then OK button
1) miscrosoft.xrm.client.dll
2) Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll

Step 8 -  Open the class named Class.cs from solution explorer and modify the below code in it.
If your namespace name and class name is different then remember to verify and update it.

Code Snippet : 

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk;

namespace My_First_Plugin
    public class Class1 : IPlugin     //{inherit the class Iplugin in your class}
        public void Execute(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)        //{add the execute method}
            // create context , service factory and service objects
            IPluginExecutionContext context = (IPluginExecutionContext)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.IPluginExecutionContext));
            IOrganizationServiceFactory serviceFactory = (IOrganizationServiceFactory)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IOrganizationServiceFactory));
            IOrganizationService service = serviceFactory.CreateOrganizationService(context.UserId);

            //to enter  value in Email field in contact entity

            //create an object of predefined class Entity and pass entity name as its parameter
            Entity Object = new Entity("contact");   // in place of contact you can write schema name of entity on which you want to preform operations

            Object.Attributes.Add("emailaddress1", "");  //emailaddress1 is the schema name of the Email field in contact entity
             // is the value

            //to update the record service.Update(object of the entity)


After updating your code your code will look like this 

Step 9 -  Right click on Project and click on Properties

Step 10 -  Now, we have to create a key. Go to Signing - select the checkbox "Sign the assembly" and click on <New..> option 

Step 11 -  Enter any name you want for your Key and click on OK button
