At 04:00 PM, October 05, 2017 I’ll be delivering a session “Successful data migration and integration in Dynamics 365/CRM” where I will show best practices and tools how to process data to and from Dynamics 365.

“Data migration and integration can be hard and painful. This session shows you best practices and tools how to process data to and from Dynamics 365. CRM Data migration and integration in Dynamics CRM can be a complex topic because data is often more complex than what people realise. When delivering a new implementation of Dynamics CRM, or when considering making your CRM system communicate with other IT systems, a proper design for data migration and/or integration is key to success. This session describes typical data migration and integration patterns and processes to and from Dynamics 365. First focus is on presenting best practices and design patterns to model your data migration and integration strategies for Dynamics CRM, and then putting the integration patterns in practice by building or using connectors to and from Dynamics CRM that respond to different requirements of data migration, aggregation, correlation, etc.”

Supported .NET Framework Dynamics 365 (4.6.1 not supported!)

Problem: After migrating a Dynamics CRM environment from 2016 OnPrem to Dynamics 365 Online I was getting the following error message every time a plugin or a custom-workflow-activity was triggered:

Unhandled Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault, Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]]:

  <ExceptionSource i:nil="true" />
  <InnerFault i:nil="true" />
  <OriginalException i:nil="true" />
  <TraceText>

Solution: After analyzing the problem and having a look at MSDN, I found out that the plugins CWAs were compiled with .NET-Framework 4.6.1 but only 4.5.2 is supported. After changing it back to 4.5.2, compiling and deploying everything worked well.

Problem

Nach der Migration von einer CRM 2011 Organisation auf 2016 (via 2013 und 2015) kann das Edit-Formular von verschiedenen Entitäten nicht mehr geöffnet werden resp. es bleibt eine weisse Seite und die Daten werden nicht geladen.

Lösung

Auf dem Form war die Anzeige der Navigationselemente ausgeschaltet:

Nachdem diese wieder eingeschalten worden war, konnte das Formular ohne Probleme geladen werden.
