  • Hi,

    Find teh answer below:

    1. Yes they are supported

    2. No or rules are supported and if you will create two rules and activate them then both will run validate there conditions

    3. You can create duplicate detection rule entity record duplicaterule  and Rule Conditions by creating duplicaterulecondition entity record via CRMService.Create request and invoke duplication detection rule programatically (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg309427.aspx_)
