Developer extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem, CRM Online
Developer Extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 is a set of tools included in this SDK that simplifies and accelerates the development of applications that interact with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 Update. This set of tools extends the functionality of the core Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK specifically around the use of the OrganizationServiceContext class. Developer extensions provide the following capabilities:
Simplified connection to CRM servers provided by the CrmConnection class (Microsoft.Xrm.Client)
Code generation of strong types provided by customizations to the code generation tool (CrmSvcUtil.exe)
- App.config and Web.config configurability for enabling custom extensions provided by the CrmConfigurationManager class (Microsoft.Xrm.Client)
Performance enhancements through caching of service results provided by the CachedOrganizationService class (Microsoft.Xrm.Client)
The Portal developer guide for Microsoft Dynamics CRM enables you to build a web portal for CRM. This guide provides the following capabilities:
Security Management (Microsoft.Xrm.Portal)
Cache Management (Microsoft.Xrm.Portal)
Content Management (Microsoft.Xrm.Portal, Microsoft.Xrm.Portal.Files, WebSiteCopy.exe)
Developer Extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM supports deployment for CRM on-premises and CRM Online. However, plug-ins that run in the sandbox on CRM Online shouldn’t make use of any classes or methods in Microsoft.Xrm.Client because certain functionality in that assembly isn’t supported in the sandbox.
