Get Entity Logical Name from its Object Type Code in Dynamics 365

Being a CRM developer, while writing the code, you might need to get the Entity Logical Name from its Object Type Code,

So here is the code to do the same:

public static string geEntityLogicalName(int ObjectTypeCode)
{
            string entityLogicalName = String.Empty;

MetadataFilterExpression EntityFilter =
new MetadataFilterExpression(LogicalOperator.And);

EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(
new MetadataConditionExpression
(\"ObjectTypeCode\", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, ObjectTypeCode));

MetadataPropertiesExpression mpe =
new MetadataPropertiesExpression();

mpe.AllProperties =
false;

mpe.PropertyNames.Add(
\"ObjectTypeCode\");

EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression = new EntityQueryExpression()
{

Criteria = EntityFilter,

Properties = mpe

};


RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse initialRequest =
GetMetadataChanges(entityQueryExpression, null, DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet);

if (initialRequest.EntityMetadata.Count == 1)
{

entityLogicalName = initialRequest.EntityMetadata[0].LogicalName;

}

return entityLogicalName;

}


protected static RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse GetMetadataChanges
(EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression, String clientVersionStamp, DeletedMetadataFilters deletedMetadataFilter)
{

RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest retrieveMetadataChangesRequest =
new RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest();
{

Query = entityQueryExpression,

ClientVersionStamp = clientVersionStamp,

DeletedMetadataFilters = deletedMetadataFilter

};


return (RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse)service.Execute(retrieveMetadataChangesRequest);

}

            Console.ReadLine();

} public static string geEntityLogicalName(int ObjectTypeCode) { string entityLogicalName = String.Empty; MetadataFilterExpression EntityFilter =

if (initialRequest.EntityMetadata.Count == 1)
{

entityLogicalName = initialRequest.EntityMetadata[0].LogicalName;

}

return entityLogicalName;

}


protected static RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse GetMetadataChanges
(EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression, String clientVersionStamp, DeletedMetadataFilters deletedMetadataFilter)
{

RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest retrieveMetadataChangesRequest =
new RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest()
{

Query = entityQueryExpression,

ClientVersionStamp = clientVersionStamp,

DeletedMetadataFilters = deletedMetadataFilter

};


return (RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse)service.Execute(retrieveMetadataChangesRequest);

}

public static IOrganizationService ConnectToCRM()
{

IOrganizationService organizationService = null;

            try
{

ClientCredentials clientCredentials = new ClientCredentials();

clientCredentials.UserName.UserName =
\"\";

clientCredentials.UserName.Password =
\"\";

ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls12;

organizationService =
new OrganizationServiceProxy(new Uri(\"
\"),

null, clientCredentials, null);

return organizationService;

}

catch (Exception ex)
{

Console.WriteLine(
\"Exception caught - \" + ex.Message);

return organizationService;

}

}

}

}
