Integration of Google Groups and Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Integration of Google Groups and Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Integration using the Table API

Google Groups provides access to a table of the Group objects that have been created by group owners. This table allows you to retrieve information about individual groups, including owners, members, settings, and statistics. The Google Groups data can be used to customize reports and dashboards, build new applications, or simply provide users with more information about their groups.

The Google Group data can be accessed via a RESTful interface. The fplowing examples use Google Data APIs Explorer which is a web-based top for exploring the Google Data APIs. It's a convenient way to quickly experiment with Google data without writing a lot of code. You can use your browser to send requests to the APIs. The response from the APIs is then displayed in the top.

In the above screenshot, I am accessing the Groups API using the RESTful interface. In order to do this, I need to specify the fplowing:

URL. https://www.googleapis.com/groups/v1/groups

Method. GET

Header. Authorization. GoogleLogin auth=09d8e8c8e8f8b1438f764894a41fe73d8f8ce876

Body. None (blank)

Query Parameters. q="ACME Employees" (query string. pageToken="10000060" (page token)

The URL specifies the base URL for accessing all of the Google Data APIs. Next, I specify the method I want to use to access the API. In this case, I use GET because I am not adding or updating any data. After that, I specify the header that identifies that the user is logging in with his Google Account. Finally, I specify the query parameters that are defined in the URL at the end of the line.

Note that the query strings contain special characters such as spaces and ampersands so they must be encoded in order to be sent to the API. For example, "ACME Employees" would need to be encoded in order to be sent over the network in its original form. If you want to, you can encode it in any way you like when you are constructing the request but you should always decode it when you receive it back from the API. Otherwise, you will just see garbled text when you display it for users. There are different standards for encoding these values depending on which programming language you are using so if you are working with other developers, you might need to agree on how to encode these values before you can work together. When using PHP, I prefer to use urlencode(. function which you can see here. http://php.net/manual/en/function.urldecode.php .

When I load the above screen into my web browser, I get a result that looks like this:

It appears that there are 6 groups in my account so let's take a look at one of them. https://www.googleapis.com/groups/v1/groups/129830362486223928601 . That request gives me the fplowing list of Group objects:

If I fplow any one of these links, I get an object that describes that specific group. Let's look at one of them. https://www.googleapis.com/groups/v1/groups/129830362486223928601 . That request gives me the fplowing information about that group:

I can also use the same method to retrieve data about a specific group member by sending my request using a different query string. https://www.googleapis.com/groups/v1/usersq=google%40gmail.com&qh=0 . The qh parameter tells me how many results per page I want and I could also specify a pageToken value if I wanted to get results from another page in my dataset. You can see what this looks like below:

I could keep doing this over and over again by modifying my query string and getting different datasets returned for each one but instead, let's move on and look at how we can integrate these two services using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and the Table API. The image below shows what we will be creating in this area of our application:

  • Integration of Google Groups and Microsoft Dynamics CRM - Integrating the User Interface and Data Layer. We will create an entity called GoogleGroup which will represent each group object in our system and we will create another entity called GroupMember which will represent users who belong to our groups. We will add an attribute to our Group object called Owner which is an enum type and we will add an attribute called MembershipType which will allow us to distinguish between two types of memberships. active and passive. Our GroupMember object will have a number of attributes where some of them will be inherited from our base entity called Contact . Here is a list of attributes that we will add to our GroupMember object. GroupUserName . This attribute will either be set to null or it will contain the name of the user who belongs to this group if he has been added as a member under his email address from Google Groups. In order to get his name from Google Groups, we need to make a call to their service using a SOAP request which you can find here . In our case, we need his email address so we'll just hard code his name which is Paul. This attribute will be marked as ReadOnly because we only need it once when we want to verify that a group member has been added correctly and then we no longer need it for anything else since it does not change after that point in time. ActiveStatus . This attribute is actually inherited from our base entity Contact . It will either be set to true or false depending on whether this user is activated or not. MembershipType . This attribute is also inherited from our base entity Contact . It will either be set to Active or Passive depending on whether this user is an active member or a passive member of a particular group. CompanyName . This attribute will contain the name of the company that this user works for if he was added as a member under his company name from Google Groups which you can see here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his company name which is ACME Corporation. EmailAddress . This attribute contains his primary email address from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his email address from Google Groups which you can see here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his email address which is [email protected] . State . This attribute contains his state from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his state from Google Groups which you can see here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his state which is Arizona . Type . This attribute contains his type from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his type from Google Groups which you can see here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his type which is Manager . Name . This attribute contains his name from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his name from Google Groups which you can see here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his name which is Paul Jones . EmailSubject . This attribute contains his subject from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his email subject from Google Groups which you can find here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his subject which is New Message for {user} . EmailBody . This attribute contains his body from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his body from Google Groups which you can find here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his body which is Hi {user} how are you . EmailReadReplyTo . This attribute contains his read reply-to email address from Google Groups if he was added as a member under his read reply-to email address from Google Groups which you can find here . In our case, we don't need anything other than his email address so we'll just hard code his read reply-to email address
