Administer the deployment using the deployment web service


Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2013

For an on-premises deployment, you can use the deployment web service (deployment service) as a programmatic alternative to using the Deployment Manager. Note that the caller must be a Deployment Administrator to use this web service. This allows you to manage organizations, servers, and licenses for deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013.

In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, use of the advanced settings (UpdateAdvancedSettingsRequest has been changed to internal use only. The relevant settings have all been incorporated into settings classes that you can update by using standard deployment entities or by using the Deployment Configuration Tool. You can find information about these classes in Deployment entities and deployment configuration settings. These can also be retrieved and updated using Windows PowerShell. More information:  Administer the deployment using Windows PowerShell.

You can create solutions to do the following:

  • Manipulate the organization entity to create, import, upgrade, enable, or disable organizations.

  • Retrieve and view Microsoft Dynamics CRM license information for a deployment.

  • Update deployment configuration settings.

  • Add or remove deployment administrators.

  • Enable, disable, or delete servers.

  • Enumerate and change the state of servers in the deployment.

The deployment service works with Windows integrated authentication (Active Directory) only.
