Minimum PHP version
This plugin requires at least PHP 7.2.5.
For this plugin to work, access to a working instance of Dynamics 365 Online, or Dynamics 365 / CRM On-Premises with IFD (Internet Facing Deployment) is required. Without an instance of Dynamics 365 / CRM the plugin is absolutely useless. Please, do not raise issues related to that fact. If you are curious to try, you can always sign up for a free trial of Dynamics 365.
Plugin documentation is available at docs.alexacrm.com/wpcrm/.
Development of this plugin takes place at the GitHub repository. Please address all questions and issues there.
As communicated by Microsoft, effective April 04, 2022, Microsoft Dataverse is retiring the WS-Trust authentication protocol. Dynamics 365 Integration plugin uses WS-Trust protocol when authenticating using username and password. Beginning from version 1.2.32, the plugin includes app id / secret authentication method. This method uses OAuth protocol and will continue to operate as normal.
How does this affect me?
On April 04, 2022, any instance of Dynamics 365 Integration plugin that uses username / password authentication will no longer connect to Microsoft Dataverse / Dynamics 365.
What action do I need to take?
Existing users: To avoid impact to your operations when this is enforced, please switch plugin authentication method from username / password to app id / secret by following Quick Start instructions in the product documentation.
New users: follow Quick Start steps and use app id / secret to connect to your Dataverse / Dynamics 365 instance.
Installing Dynamics 365 Integration is just like any other WordPress plugin:
- Inside your WordPress dashboard navigate to your WordPress Plugins page
- In the search field enter Dynamics CRM or Dynamics 365, then click Search Plugins, or press Enter.
- Select Dynamics 365 Integration and click Install Now.
- Once installed, click Activate.
- Navigate to Admin > Dynamics CRM page to enter your Dynamics 365 / CRM connection details.
