Add Deployment Administrators

To run the CRM Deployment Manager and provision tenant CRM sites, you must be assigned the Deployment Administrator role. Deployment Administrators have complete and unrestricted access to perform Deployment Manager tasks on all organizations and servers in a Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment.

  • Deployment administrators must be defined in each CRM deployment group.
  • While you could use the same account, it is recommended that you use separate accounts per CRM deployment group to minimize risk to a security breach.
  • Although you should limit the number of Deployment Administrators, the best practice is to enable at least two or three trusted user accounts with this role. This will help prevent potential lockouts that could occur when only using a single account.
