Dynamics 365/CRM - Exporting all attachments from Notes RRS feed

  • Frage

  • I need to export/download all documents that have been attached to the Notes entity in Dynamics 365/CRM. I need all the files to be downloaded in bulk to their original format. We can not not afford add-ons,  tools or Off-the-self products.

    So i tried this tool on codeplex - 


    I never got it working, it says this is for 2011/2013. So i do not have hopes.

    Tried another tool - but looks like it works only with online crm.


    Also, I found this link - https://dreamingincrm.com/2018/01/18/export-all-attachments-using-linqpad/comment-page-1/#comment-843

    But i am not sure how to use this, no complete steps or solution to download.

    Can someone please guide me to right direction, sample code/project, steps that can work for On-premises Dynamics 365/CRM to export/download all documents that have been attached to the Notes entity.

    Thank You.

    I would suggest SSIS for this purpose - http://www.kingswaysoft.com/blog/2017/03/21/Extracting-CRM-Attachments-with-Ease

  • Well, i ended up building a console application that connects to Dynamics CRM using developer extensions
    and users will be prompted for network credential and can download all attachments from CRM depend on simple filters like title, file type, file size, created on. So far so good.
