Microsoft Dynamics CRM – Custom Code Validation Tool for CRM 2013

As you start to think about the upgrade path to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 take time to check out and use the Custom Code Validation Tool to scan your current environment of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.  This tool will check for compatibility issues of the code when upgrading your CRM 2011 environment to CRM 2013.

This tool will get installed inside your CRM system via a managed solution file. So in order to install it you must use a Microsoft CRM user account with the Import Customisations privilege to install this managed solution.

Details about the Custom Code Validation Tool from Microsoft:

To help you prepare for your upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, we have created the Custom Code Validation Tool for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013. When using JavaScript code in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, it is possible that some code will stop working or cause an error when you upgrade. The Microsoft Dynamics CRM Custom Code Validation Tool helps identify potential problems so that a developer can fix them. Please run this tool on your CRM instance to help identify potential issues with custom JavaScript in JavaScript libraries and HTML web resources. It will detect issues in the custom web resources that will no longer work after the upgrade is completed. The most common issues that this tool targets are:

CRM v4 client SDK calls
CRM 2007 end points
Common DOM manipulations

Running this tool before upgrade will enable you to identify issues and fix them prior to your scheduled upgrade so that your upgrade process can run smoothly.

I previously posted about the Custom Code Validation Tool for CRM 2011 late last year, which ensured your existing customisations will work with the next service release of CRM 2011, code named Polaris at the time. That post can be found at the link below.
