Deployment Administrators

Applies to Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement apps version 9.x (on-premises)

To run Deployment Manager, you must have the Deployment Administrator role. Deployment Administrators have unrestricted access to perform Deployment Manager tasks on all organizations and servers in a Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement deployment.

Important

Make sure that at least two or three trusted people have the Deployment Administrator role. This prevents system lockout if the primary deployment administrator is unavailable.

During Dynamics 365 Server Setup, the user running Setup is automatically given the Deployment Administrator role. A Deployment Administrator can give the Deployment Administrator role to other users in Active Directory directory service.

Note

Users who have the Deployment Administrator role do not automatically become Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement users and do not consume a client access license (CAL).

The Deployment Administrator role cannot be managed in the Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement client applications.
