Dynamics Portal OnPremise 8 and Organization.svc / OData V2 removal

Hi All,

 

Some of my customers are still using Dynamics Portal on-prem hosted in Azure.

 

In November 2022, the OData V2 will be finally removed (https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/odata-v2-0-service-removal-date-announcement/

 

I have some doubts about the Dynamics Portal / ADXStudio connected to the Online CRM. If the Portal uses SDK > 8.0, we shouldn't have any issues but, I saw in the code (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55789) it use the Old Organization Service, so I am not 100% sure.

I've tried to reach MS, but they say they can't provide any support or answer questions since it isn't supported anymore.

 

Has anyone an answer or more info about that?

 

Thanks a million to everyone 🙂

Hi @Alduzzen1985 ,

we are currently migrating two really large projects to power apps portals. Of course, the crm systems have to be in the cloud then. This customer operated the adx portals in virtual machines in the cloud connected to the cloud services.

For exactly the reason of the removal of the organizationservice we had to act on that one. We had a lot of code in the adx portals which is now to be moved (which is possible due to the availibility of the web api in portals).

The question is a little bit, whether the community edition (even if archived) is an option. Its based on the one time release as far as i know and some things were fixed. Did you take a look on https://github.com/Adoxio/xRM-Portals-Community-Edition (well, and this https://alanmervitz.com/2020/12/31/the-end-of-xrm-portals-community-edition/  archiving message as well 😞 ) ?

May be, it helps and transporting your code to that one helps.

The major change of course was the introduction of multi-language capabilities. So, if you are still on version 7 with one portal per language then this is eventually not an option as you had to migrate your data too (which is not always easy)

So, sorry, no clear statement but our scenario online crm with adx 7 had to be migrated. No other way.

This was also stated by the product group and the fast-track engineer supporting us at this (really really large) customer.

 

May be it helps a little bit in the solutionfinding,

  Christian

 

PS just looked in the git. Things didn't change much...

Thanks a million, @chleverenz; I verified in the GitHub repository too before writing my post, and I saw that the code had not changed it. 

 

I think it is the real end of life for ADX / OnPremise Dynamics Portal.

Hi @Alduzzen1985 ,

yes, the end seems near, i think, too. Even having the possibility to adopt the community edition to new technical challenges doesn't mean one should do it...

On one hand, Microsoft is pressing hard to get customers into the cloud, on the other hand the tooling becomes better and better and the (technical) possibilities in the cloud are really great. Even in germany many customers moved to the cloud, even really big ones. I did not expect that.

The central discussions we have with customers is the pricing of online portals. But to be honest: the tight connection to the dataverse is really a cool feature and it will not be easy to create your own site with that deep integration...

Have fun and thanks for accepting a post from me as a solution,

  Christian
