CRM 2011 Plugin Registration Tool - Large Assemblies - Updating to a 365 environment. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've used ILMerge to join assemblies together so my plugins can have extended functionality in a sand boxed environment. This works fine in sand boxed mode on-premise (database deployment) but when I try to update my assemblies on the 365 platform I get a SQL time out. 

    The error I'm getting is :

    System.TimeoutException: The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:01:59.9229692. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.

    I'm guessing it's actually the assembly size that's the issue, (3.5mb) rather than it actually taking too long. 

    I've looked around and find some solutions using the older version of the plugin registration tool, but that was when the source was available and it seems to be slightly different now anyway.

    Can someone point me in the direction of how I can increase the assembly size/time limits when updating the plugin to 365?

    Any help/ideas would be extremely appreciated.

  • Hi, 

    Thanks for trying to help me.

    I don't see the configuration file (CRMWebweb.config) that post talks about in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\

    I think that refers to an earlier version of the plugin registration tool perhaps?. I'd like to stay with the current version if possible as I've no idea what the implications are of using an older version with the latest roll up are.

    Surely this is a fairly common scenario? Has anyone else encountered this?

  • Hi James,
    your is a CRM Online environment, this means you can't change the settings explained in the previous link (they refer to the OnPremise version)

  • I wasn't sure if that related to the install or the plugin registration tool config itself.

    Any idea how we can get >1mb plugins on to CRM online?
