Sample: Share a record using an access team

This sample shows how to allow access to a record using an access team. All the members of the team will receive the same access to the record that is granted to the team.

This sample requires additional users that are not in your system. Create the required users manually in Microsoft 365 in order to run the sample without any errors. For this sample create a user profile as is shown below. Replace yourorg with the organization name.

First Name: Nancy
Last Name: Anderson
Security Role: SalesPerson

First Name: David
Last Name: Bristol
Security Role: SalesPerson

How to run this sample

  1. Download or clone the Samples repo so that you have a local copy.
  2. (Optional) Edit the dataverse/App.config file to define a connection string specifying the Microsoft Dataverse instance you want to connect to.
  3. Open the sample solution in Visual Studio and press F5 to run the sample. After you specify a connection string in dataverse/App.config, any sample you run will use that connection information.

If you do not specify a connection string in dataverse/App.config file, a dialog will open each time you run the sample and you will need to enter information about which Dataverse instance you want to connect to and which credentials you want to use. This dialog will cache previous connections so that you can choose a previously used connection.

Those samples in this repo that require a connection to a Dataverse instance to run will include a linked reference to the dataverse/App.config file.
