Trust for Delegation and the List Web Part for Dynamics


A little while ago I posted about how cool the new changes to the Dynamics CRM List Web Part were: https://sharepointkb.wordpress.com/2008/12/18/list-web-part-for-dynamics-crm-4/

When I tested and played with this I had everything on one box, and it wasn’t a very secure or realistic environment. However there have been people who have experienced issues related to ‘trust’ where CRM and SharePoint are on different machines (which is recommended in my opinion *wink wink*). And since most of you (who have this running in production environments) probably have it set up on separate machines… this new CRM blog article (by Suraj Supekar) is definitely something you should read.

Basically (and I quote): “If the SharePoint Server is not setup for Trust for Delegation then the user’s Active Directory credentials are not passed to the MS CRM server. The LWP deployed on SharePoint does not receive the CRM authentication ticket from SharePoint and displays the sign on form used with an IFD installation.”

So if you are experiencing this issue, the resolution is in that blog post. 🙂

Hope this helps someone,
Richard
