Updated: November 29, 2016
Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online
There are two types of settings managed by the deployment web service: deployment entities (derived from DeploymentEntity) and deployment configuration settings (derived from DeploymentConfigSettings). You can use the RetrieveAllRequest, RetrieveRequest, UpdateRequest and DeleteRequest messages to interact with these entity types.
Alternatively, you can use Windows PowerShell commands to interact with these entity types. Each one has its own command such as Get-CrmOrganization. For more information, see Administer the deployment using Windows PowerShell.
When you retrieve, delete or update a deployment record, you specify the type of deployment entity you are working with using the DeploymentEntityType enumeration. These types correspond to the classes shown below.
The following table lists the deployment entity classes.
