CRM 2011: Include deletions in solutions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I just stumbled across an answer on this board that states that deleting some fields in a development server will not be reflected in the integration server after deploying the solution. 

    "It is not possible to include deletions in the solution so any deletes on the Dev instance needs to be deleted from integration server as well. It is best tackled by documenting these steps when you are performing these steps in Dev instance so that when you want to perform sync with integration server, you can perform these steps as part of deployment. Unfortunately, deletion is something that cannot be automated. Hence this will need to be performed as a manual step."

    This is not what I've experienced when working with CRM 2011. If I delete some values in an optionset and then export and import a managed solution (that includes the entity which holds the optionset), the values are also deleted on the importing organization/server. 

    Could anyone clarify this?
