System Views - CRM 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have two seperate environments, source and target.

    1. I create a new system view for a custom entity (new_customentity),in the target environment

    2. I create a solution in the source environment with just one custom entity component (new_customentity)

    3. I export the solution created in step 2 and import it into the target environment

    What will happen to the system view created in step 1? Will the view be overwritten/deleted? Will the solution import at all?

    Cheers,

    Stanley

  • The view will be unaffected. The import process is additive for system views:

    • If the solution contains a view that is not in the target, it will be created
    • If the solution contains a view that is in the target, it will be updated
    • Any views in the target that are not in the solution will be unaffected
