When publishing unmanaged solution, this error shows up
Record Is Unavailable
The requested record was not found or you do not have sufficient permissions to view it.
Although you have system admin role. Even worse, the download error log button is disabled and you can’t find out which component causing the error.
Clearly that there is something in the solution which you can see, but the system can’t.
If you try to pulish components one by one, there will be no error. But publishing all won’t work.
It will be quicker if you can narrow down what are added recently that may cause the error. Then you can use a different tool to publish the solution, either writing your own tool or use a plugin in XrmToolbox called “Manage Solution”, to catch the exception and see what the root cause is.
In my case it was a web resource, I deleted it and publishing all worked like a charm. Note that removing it from the solution doesn’t help.
“Tab” instead of display names
Have you encountered these limitations when working with Duplicate Detection functionalities in Dynamics 365?
You can include only 450 characters in the matchcode. Either change or delete rule conditions to reduce the number of characters included, and then try again.
Bulk Detect Duplicate Limit Exceeded. The Bulk Duplicate Detection job cannot detect more than 5000 duplicates. Please review your duplicate rules or resolve existing duplicates and rerun the job
Although the OOB duplicate detection functionalities are useful in some cases, I often find myself wasting hours to workaround those limitations when dealing with large amount of data. So I decided to build a solution which allows me to quickly query for duplicates and see how many records duplicated.
Deduplicator is a plugin for XrmToolBox. You can download the plugin in XrmToolBox Plugin Store.
What Deduplicator can do
In the first release, it has below features:
- Allows matching multiple fields with no length limitation.
- Allows searching more than 5000 records.
- Allows selecting fields for results view.
- Shows total of duplicated records
Deduplicator is open source

You can find the source code of the plugin in Github at:
Please rate and share the plugin if you think it helpful, also don’t hesitate to leave any comment here or in the GitHub to make it better or if you find any bugs.
Alternate keys is a useful functionality introduced from CRM 2016. It allows you specify one or more fields to be an alternate key and use it to identify a record instead of using GUID. This is extremely helpful when you work with data migration and/or data integration between systems. More about Altenate Keys here.
Only attributes of the following types can be included in alternate key definitions: Decimal, Whole Number, Single line of text.
However, there are some restrictions in what field can be selected as alternate keys which the document doesn’t mention. Below is the non-exhausted list of them, I’ll update this if I find more:
- Secured fields. A field with “Field Security” enabled doesn’t show up in the list when you creating alternate key.
- “fullname” in “contact” entity
- “domainname” in “systemuser” entity
So be aware when you work with alternate keys. Hope it helps!
If you try to use
HttpUtility.UrlEncode in your plugin or workflow code, you’ll get a security error:
System.Security.SecurityException: That assembly does not allow partially trusted callers.
Because it’s not allowed in CRM Online.
Instead, we should use this one:
