  • 1.  Where to get Table and field definitions for Dynamics CE 9.1 On-premises?

    Where can I get the Table and Field definitions (Metadata Schema) for Dynamics 9.1 On-premises?
    My organization is upgrading from Dynamics CE 8.2 On-premises to Dynamics 9.1 On-premises and we need to find the column/field changes for updating our data models.

    I don't have 9.1 On-premises installed yet so I can't use the Xrm Toolbox tool Metadata Document Generator.

    I also have been unable to find this in the Online Documentation for Customer Engagement (On-premises) 9.1.
    Your help appreciated!

    Hi @Allison Briden,

    I found a reference here: About Entity Reference (Developer Guide for Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement) | Microsoft Docs.  Each entity is listed on the left frame - not the most navigable reference, but I think it has what you're looking for. ​

    Thanks, @Jeff Woodard! You're right! It's hard to find that information with just the sidebar navigation. When I downloaded the PDF of it, I found the information much more easily.
