CRM 2011 upgrade to CRM 2015 - ASP Web Portal SDK Requirements

We are currently under going an upgrade from CRM 2011 to CRM 2015 (Our migration process CRM 2011 --> CRM 2013 --> CRM 2015).

The server and the application are currently being upgraded; the concern we have is with our web portal ASP code, the code connects web forms from our Company Website to our CRM 2011 instance. The web portal was build using the CRM 2011 SDK, from what I have read, most of our code will be supported in CRM 2015.

The core question I have is:

  • When we upgrade from CRM 2011 to CRM 2015, what ASP code will not work?

I am not sure how we can check the code if it would work with CRM 2015.

Does anyone have any suggestions, links or best practice measures we can follow to ensure CRM 2015 will work with our web forms?

if you used the CRM SDK to build your ASP.NET portal, it should work. One of the problems you can eventually face is the authentication. Let's say for example that something related to the ADFS configuration will change during the upgrade, the code related to the authentication part will or will not work.

If you want to check if your code works with CRM 2015, you should create a test environment cloning your CRM 2011 instance, upgrade it and connect a test instance of your ASP.NET site to this CRM test instance.

Thanks so much for your response!

Luckily, our CRM uses ADFS at this time for user authentication and not our web portal.

Thanks again.
