Updating Dynamics CRM records in Bulk. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I stuck in one task that for one of for our client we need to update the crm records of different entities like accounts, contacts, opportunities etc. and that instance is online.

    The issue is total records count is 5,00000 (5 Lakh) or more approx.

    In my knowledge i only know that RetrieveMultiple method is available which used in plugins etc. but that has a limitation of 5000 records and also the plugin execution time limit is 2 mins other wise timeout issue comes.

    So i make one windows service which updates the records by using that i by pass the timeout issue but still in one time i am able to fetch only 5000 records.

    So is there any way to fetch all or more than 5000 records from online instance of dynamics crm.

    I will really appreciate your comments.

    Thanks in advance!!
