Deployment Web Service in Microsoft Dynamics CRM
In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, you can use the deployment Web service (Deployment Service) as a programmatic alternative to using the Deployment Manager. Note that the caller must be a Deployment Administrator to use this Web service. This allows you to manage organizations, servers, and licenses for deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. You can create solutions to do the following:
Manipulate the organization entity to create, import, upgrade, enable or disable organizations.
Retrieve and view Microsoft Dynamics CRM license information for a deployment.
Update deployment configuration settings.
Add or remove deployment administrators.
Enable, disable, or delete servers.
Update settings that are stored in the configuration database.
Enumerate and change the state of servers in the deployment.
The deployment service works with Windows integrated authentication (Active Directory) only.
|The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 deployment service is not backward compatible. If you have written code that uses the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Deployment Web Service, you will have to upgrade that code to use the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 deployment service.|
