Automate plugin registration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We are in the process of shifting from manual deployment to automated deployment of many of our applications including CRM Plugins.

    Is there a way to register plugins without manual intervention? Any links on this subject is greatly welcome. Thanks.

  • This helps, but I thought it would be a little easier..like.. there would be some command line function that tkes the required parameters :-(

    You could have a look at the plugindeveloper tool included with SDK. It's a very simple command line app that registers assemblies, steps etc based on a XML configuration file. The source code is available so you can easily modify it if you need more functionality.
