SDK extensions for Microsoft Dynamics 365


Updated: February 21, 2017

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

This section is devoted to extensions to the core Microsoft Dynamics 365 SDK that offer additional capabilities and a different developer experience using the assemblies with the Organization service.


The SDK extensions are deprecated, but supported for December 2016 update for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online and on-premises). The SDK extensions won’t be supported in future release of Dynamics 365, version 9.0 and beyond. You should instead use XRM tooling assemblies to build your Windows application for Dynamics CRM. More information: .NET Development: Use XRM Tooling assemblies

The links below refer to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 SDK documentation on MSDN. There have been no significant change to the SDK extensions since that version. The SDK extensions assemblies and tools are not included in the V8.0.0 SDK download package. You can obtain these assemblies and tools by downloading the SDK extensions NuGet package. These can be used with the December 2016 update for Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online and on-premises)
