CRM 2013 WebService Batch Program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

         We have one batch program written using CRM WebService for CRM 4.0 which sync accounts/contact everyday from other system to CRM system.

    Now we need to change CRM Batch program top work with CRM 2013 using same web service. Any idea , whether is that significant change in CRM Web service for version 4.0 to 2013 or its same??

    I mean does CrmService.Update/CrmService.Create has any big difference as  far as accepting parameter and execution and any thing else??

  • Hello,

    It's not same there are significant changes between MS CRM 4.0 services and services available in later versions, there is new programming mode introduced with ms crm 2011 release, I will suggest you to go through the services changes, parameters are same but there are additional methods available as well.

    Hope it will help !!!

  • CRM 2013 does not support the CRM 4.0 web service endpoint, so your code will need to be changed to use the CRM 2013 web service endpoint.

    In general, the methods and parameters are very similar. However, the data types used for attribute values have changed - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg328507.aspx (this is in the CRM 2011 SDK, as the changes happened in CRM 2011, and they haven't changed for CRM 2013)
