Importing CRM 2011 Plugins – Permission

with 4 comments

In CRM 2011, you may include Plugin assemblies and steps in a solution.  Then you can export the solution from one environment and import into other environments.  If you run into a problem telling you that the import of the plugins failed, you might want to look into your permissions. 

I ran into the problem last week, I thought I don’t need the Deployment Manager permission in this version, so I was wrong.  In order to import the plugins, you need to have “CRM System Administrator and “Deployment Manager permission. 

I hope this helps you if you run into the same problem.

  1. The Deployment Manager permission pops up all over the place stopping you do things.

    It’s seems to powerful to give the privilege to lots of people but you find you keep needing it.

    It’s very annoying when you aren’t one and all the people with the privilege are out of the office.

  2. Plugins need to run in isolated mode for CRM Online – and when ran in on-premise scenarios you need to be a deployment administrator. This is documented very clearly in the Security and Restrictions section of the SDK, and here:

    Security Restrictions
    There is a security restriction that enables only privileged users to register plug-ins. For plug-ins that are not registered in isolation, the system user account under which the plug-in is being registered must exist in the Deployment Administrators group of Deployment Manager. Only the System Administrator user account or any user account included in the Deployment Administrators group can run Deployment Manager.
