Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension XML configuration file

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013

The following is an explanation of each XML element and a sample XML file for installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension:

<CRMSetup> </CRMSetup>
The configuration file must be a valid XML file that uses <CRMSetup> as the root element.

<bidsextensions> </bidsextensions>
The configuration file must be a valid XML file that uses <bidsextensions> as the primary element. All the Report Authoring Extension entries that follow must be within the <bidsextensions> tags

<patch update=”true” / ”false” />
Determines the behavior of the update Setup technology. When you specify True this feature lets Setup perform a one-time search for, and if applicable, download to apply the latest installation files for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. If you specify False, updates will not be applied to Setup.

<muoptin optin="true” / “false" />
Specifies whether to use Microsoft Update to download and install updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension. After the installation is completed, this feature helps keep your computer up-to-date on an ongoing basis.

  • True. When you specify this option, Setup will opt in to Microsoft Update as the update service and use the Windows automatic updating settings on the computer. Windows automatic update settings can be viewed in Windows Update in Control Panel. Microsoft Update helps make sure that your computer has the latest technology, which can help reduce the risk of vulnerabilities and security issues.

  • False. When you specify this option, Setup will not change the existing Windows automatic update settings. If the computer is not already configured to use Microsoft Update as the update service, we recommend that you have another method to install updates on the computer, such as by using Microsoft Windows Update Services (WSUS). If left blank, a value of false will be selected.

<InstallDir>c:\program files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM</InstallDir>
Specifies the folder in which application files will be installed. By default, Setup uses the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

<InstallType>uninstall</InstallType>
Uninstalls Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension. This is a maintenance mode option that is only available when the application is already installed.

<InstanceName>InstanceName</InstanceName>
Specifies a named instance of Microsoft SQL Server where to install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension. If left blank or not used, Setup uses the default instance of SQL Server.

<MonitoringServiceAccount type="DomainUser"/"NetworkService">
<ServiceAccountLogin>="DomainUser"/"NetworkService"</ServiceAccountLogin>
<ServiceAccountPassword>password</ServiceAccountPassword>
</MonitoringServiceAccount>
Specifies the service account to use for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Monitoring service.

Accepted values are DomainUser, which will use the specified domain user provided in the <prefixServiceAccount> element or NetworkService, which uses the Network Service system account. By default, Setup will use the DomainUser option. If DomainUser or no type is specified, <ServiceAccountLogin> and <ServiceAccountPassword> are required.

WarningWarning
Maintaining the configuration file that has <ServiceAccountLogin> and <ServiceAccountPassword> values specified is a security risk because you’re storing a password in plain text. Delete these elements as soon as the configuration file is used to install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2013.

We recommend that you specify a different low-privilege user account for each of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM service accounts.
