Connect Bridge between CRM and SharePoint integration (Security Issue) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    There is a limitation on the security privileges on SharePoint in the integration of CRM with SharePoint (i.e. irrespective of the CRM privileges, the user can see the documents in the SharePoint always).

    I have gone through a tool (Connection Bridge Replicator) and looking to develop a similar kind of solution.

    Can anyone help me with the below points.

    1) How to manage the Connection Bridge, let me know if any pointers.

    2) what would be the challenges for the implementation for which I need to be prepared with?

    3) Any other feasible solution which can maintain the two way auto synchronization of security privileges between CRM and SharePoint? 

    4) Any information on Microsoft fixing this issue in near future?

    Any thoughts/help would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Sri

  • Hi SRI,

    I just found your post by accident. :-)

    I think you will not get an answer soon because of using wrong terms:

    It is Connect Bridge - The platform

    From Connecting Software- the company http://www.connecting-software.com 

    CB Dynamics CRM privileges to SharePoint permission replicator - the product     http://www.connecting-software.com/index.php/en/solutions/products/cb-dynamics-crm-privileges-to-sharepoint-permissions-replicator

    Answers:

    1) very easy to complicated: the Replicator is a out of the box solution, no need to manage or learn a lot. The Connect Bridge is a powerful platform where a developer can connect from any technology to  Dynamics CRM 2010, 2013 and Online (of course 2015 as soon as released). Find more about our concept on our webpage, or deeper in our "developers corner" as we want to involve developers- who really can see our benefits.

    2) Just try it out we offer a free trial for one month, just have a dev system prepared (or live if you are brave LOL)

    3) we, did not find any, but I am curious if there are some alternatives. There are some basic other solutions but not covering the whole rights management in this deep granularity.

    4) I hope Microsoft will not fix it in a very near future :-) . But if, I think it will be only on the newest versions. This problem is well known since a long time and I was asked by Microsoft CRM Specialists if we could find a solution for this.

    Just try our software, I think we have a reasonable pricing and I am looking forward to have a lot of technical discussions with smart CRM developers and experts. 

    Cheers

    Thomas
