Install Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales on containers

Abstract

Introduction to installing the Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales connector in a container environment

Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales (DCRM) enables you to synchronize data between Microsoft Dynamics systems and Sitecore. This section shows you how to add the DCRM connector to Sitecore container installations for Docker and Azure Kubernetes Service.

To deploy DCRM in a container environment you must first prepare the installation files and the container images. This procedure is the same whether you use Docker or AKS. When the files and images are ready, you can deploy them to the container installation of your choice.

Before you add the DCRM module for Docker or AKS, you must have the following:

  • Docker Desktop installed and running. For instructions on how to set up the Docker environment, see the Containers in Sitecore developmentContainers in Sitecore development documentation.

  • if the installation is done on Docker, you must have the Sitecore Docker container files deployed on a local machine . For instructions on how to prepare the Sitecore containers, see the Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers on the Sitecore download page.

  • If the installation is done on Kubernetes, you must have the Sitecore AKS container files deployed on a local machine . For instructions on how to prepare a Sitecore environment with Kubernetes, see the Installation Guide for Production Environment with Kubernetes on the Sitecore download page.
