We are in beginning phase of an upgrade from a 2011 on premise to 2016.
Is this kind of setup still viable with 2016. Knowing that 2016 has a web-api functionality now , trying to grasp the differences and whether our current setup could be ported over .
are you using crm 2011 endpoint to run your web service? if yes, this is deprecated.
More about the new WebApi:
Your API code will may not work with latest SDK of Dynamics CRM 2016. So you can say those will not work properly unless you are fixing the compatibility syntax of latest SDK dll.
Secondly if you are using JQuery ,Ajax post to call WEB API , its should work.
You just need to check the organization service you are using below when you creating proxy in C# code.
Hope this helps.
Hi R T,
As of the release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2016 Update 1 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 Service Pack 1 (8.1.0), the CRM 2011 endpoint has been deprecated. The 2011 endpoint will be removed some time after the release of Dynamics 365 version 9. We plan to provide updates to the Dynamics 365 SDK assemblies and tools over the next several minor releases, retargeting them to use the Web API instead of the 2011 endpoint.
This means that at this point whatever you have should still work, because although deprecated, it has not yet been removed, but you should consider that a future upgrade to CRM v9.x On Premise, this might not work.
