Finding past changes to the Default Solution

    For our new environment, we will definitely be applying a change-control-process. (Lesson Learned!)

    However, for our current CRM 2016 on premise environment, I would like to find all customizations that consultants have made over the past years within the default solution.

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    Thanks

    Hi @Rod Carlson,

    Only thing I could recommend would be the hope that even though the changes have been made directly to your default solution in Production that they may have still packaged it up in a Solution. Settings > Solutions.
    Other than that I would not even know where to start!

    Sorry & good luck.

    Hopefully they at least used a different publisher so you may at least filter out additions to the solution by that.​

    Hi Rod,

    For Microsoft created fields, entities, web resources, etc. the schema name won't have a prefix or it'll be msdyn_ (e.g. industrycode, name). Anything that was built out in the default solution would have the prefix of new_. You could try and search out anything that has that prefix. Plugins should be able to be identified as non-Microsoft. The Microsoft ones would start with Microsoft or ActivityFeed.

    This might not be all encompassing but should get you moving towards your goal.
