Portal developer guide for Microsoft Dynamics CRM


Updated: January 15, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2015

Building a web portal that is tightly integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 helps organizations maximize the value of their Microsoft Dynamics CRM investment. Developer Extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and the portal toolkit make it easy for developers to build an agile, integrated CRM web solution.


You can find the information for the current version of portals here: Administrator's Guide to portal capabilities for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016

There is clean and full separation between the source code that works with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web services and the web portal code itself. You can hand off the web portal code to a website designer with no impact to the CRM code underneath. This can reduce the time to project completion because the website designer works in parallel with the developer.

The Customer Portal and Partner Relationship Management (PRM) Portal solutions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 will be available from the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace soon.


All portal solutions now require, at a minimum, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 Update. Any custom code that links to the portal or client assemblies must target Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2.
