Introduction

The purpose of the integration is to create collaboration sites on SharePoint 2007 as new accounts or opportunities are created in Microsoft CRM.

Whenever a new account or opportunity in Microsoft CRM is created, a workflow will be triggered. The workflow will execute a .NET assembly called "{SomeName}.dll". This assembly is responsible to create the corresponding collaboration site on SharePoint server.

Using the code

Code to Apply Logo to Sharepoint Site

private static void ApplyLogoToSharepointSite( string siteName , string entityName)
 { 
 SPGlobalAdmin globalAdmin = new SPGlobalAdmin();
  string siteURL = ConfigurationReader.GetSharepointSiteUrl(); 
 SPVirtualServer dashboaordServer =       globalAdmin.OpenVirtualServer(new Uri(siteURL));
Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb _web =   dashboaordServer.Sites["sites/"+siteName].RootWeb;
  Logger.Instance.LogComment( _web.Url );
if (_web != null)
 {
_web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
_web.SiteLogoUrl =  ConfigurationReader.GetSharepointSiteLogoUrl(entityName);
 _web.Update();

 }
