Abstract

How to upgrade the Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales connector on a Sitecore content delivery server

If you have installed Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales (MDS) on your content delivery (CD) servers, you must upgrade these servers to version 7.0.

Note

Before upgrading, make sure your system fulfills the prerequisites for the upgrade, and that you have cleaned the databases according to the instructions in Prepare for upgrading DCRM.

The CD server does not have an interface to install Sitecore update packages, so you must update the files manually.

Note

For all of the following file operations you must preserve the folder structure from the zip file folders. For example, if the changedfiles folder in the zip contains a bin subfolder, the files from this folder must go in the <website>\bin folder on your CD server.

  1. Download the Sitecore Connect for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales 7.0 update package.

  2. In the update package file, open the package.zip file. The files in the package.zip file are in the following structure:
