In this blog i will detail on using Configuration Migration/ Data Migration utility. This can be used to move the configuration data from one CRM environment to other. generally Configuration data is used to defines custom functionality in CRM, which is typically stored in custom entities.
Often we need to migrate configuration data from one CRM environment to other, especially test data, master data setup etc. Microsoft provided an excellent tool for doing this.
Following are the benefits of using this tool,
- allows you to select entity and fields from where you want to export the configuration data.
- large amount of data from multiple entities can be moved from one crm environment to other.
- Data can be imported using the same GUID’s as that of the source system, hence lookup references to imported records will be valid.
- Schema file can be reused to export data from different source environments.
