ADFS and CRM web service mscrmservices/2007/crmservice.asmx RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have just upgraded from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4 to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 with IFD deployment with ADFS. We have a custom development that uses the old CRM web services (CRM 4 web service): “mscrmservices/2007/crmservice.asmx” and “mscrmservices/2007/MetadataService.asmx”

    Is those two web service are accessible when we use ADFS with MSCRM 2011 and can I use it?

  • As far I remember yes, the CRM 4.0 endpoints are still accessible in CRM 2011 with IFD.

    However I suggest (if it possible of course) to rewrite your code to use the 2011 endpoints, they are more flexible and compatible with 2013/2015 (so less pain if your organization will be upgraded again)

  • Hi,

    Please check your deployment manager to see the IFD urls are configured properly.

  • You can still use the CRM 4 endpoints; one thing I'm sure of is whether the CrmImpersonator class will still work.

    The decision about upgrading code can be argued either way. As MS provide backward compatibility for 1 major version, then it is viable to only rewrite your code for every other version upgrade
