After fixing a few bugs, and introducing a couple more features, we’ve released the first “official” (i.e. non-beta) release of our XrmToolBox Plugin for the Online Management API.
The plugin now allows you to provision an instance, as long as you have available licenses.
When provisioning, you are able to select:
A couple of notes:
We now give you a few more options with regards to configuring Admin Mode on Sandbox instances. Whereas before you could only enable or disable Admin Mode itself, now you can also enable or disable background operations, as well as enter the text for the custom end user message.
Unfortunately, because the API doesn’t tell us whether background processes are currently enabled or disabled, we’ve decided just to leave all fields blank when form first pops up.
If you browse through the Online Management API documentation, you’ll see that most of the functionality available today is included in our plugin. The only major piece missing is related to Tenant Application Identities. For completeness sake, we’ll probably add support for that eventually, but we don’t have a time table for that. Of course, if we hear from the community that those capabilities would be useful, it could become more of a priority.
If bugs are reported we’ll try to get those fixed as quickly as possible, and if anyone has any feedback on how out plugin can be improved, please let us know.
