CRM 4.0 & 2011 – SQL Code to show where your Plug-ins are registered

When you register your plug-ins for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 or 2011 you either choose to register to Disk, Database or the GAC. I always prefer the database option so my CRM system is altogether and easier to move with deployments if required.

When you use the Plug-in Registration Tool, the action you choose will be written to the Microsoft CRM SQL Database. Therefore we can write T-SQL to give us that information.

Below is the T-SQL you can use to tell you where your Plug-ins are registered. This works for CRM 4.0 and CRM 2011.

CASE SourceType 
WHEN 0 THEN ‘Database’ 
WHEN 1 THEN ‘Disk’ 
END AS ‘Registered Location’ 
FROM PluginAssembly 


Output shown below from CRM 2011 SQL Database


Nothing stopping you either from building a SSRS Report displaying this information for your System or Deployment Administrators.

    There is obviously a lot to know about this. I assume you made some nice points in features also.
