guids between environments? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, when I export a solution from 1 crm environment and import it into another, are there certain scenarios where the exact same guid is copied from 1 environment to another? Are there certain scenarios where this always the case, are there certain scenarios where this is never the case, or is this scenario sometimes the case but never guaranteed?

  • I've not seen a definitive list - but as far as I know, if the item is included in a solution then it will retain it's GUID apart from the security roles created for each business unit (although the top level security role does retain it's guid)

    The one to watch out for is the entity type code for entities- since this can be different between environments.

    Hope this helps,
