license requirement for Database access RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello, everyone.

     

    I have a question about CRM license.

    Does it require license to access data from database directly? 

    There is no API involved, but we open the database directly to some users.

    I am planning to use FilteredView, therefore, I think registering a user at CRM is necessary.

     

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards !

  • Select statements against the filtered views are supported but they do use CRM security and so they will require CRM licenses for any users wishing to access the filtered views for reporting purposes. 

    The filtered views are read only and and are meant for reporting with SSRS.  The CRM security on them ensures that users cannot access data through reports that they don't have read access to from within the CRM system.

  • Thank you Jamie. 

    I guess this means I will need a read-only license for database access.
