Microsoft released an interesting new white paper recently which goes into detail about deploying and testing CRM 2011 in product and test environments.
You can download the white paper here
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the white paper but it was intrigueing because it used good examples and went in detail about how to create test objects (queues, users etc) using code.
I hadn’t really considered importing testing data to such an extent as test business units and user and then assign them to different security roles.
The white paper went into a lot more detailed development techniques than I have seen in previous/similar white papers.
I have always wondered how CRM online companies test their code because unlike on premise CRM solutions they can’t have a test organisation or environment.
This white paper is well worth a read. Good work
