Microsoft Dynamics® CRM users, solution sellers and developers can now customize Microsoft Dynamics CRM without code. InRule Technology, creator of InRule®, the premier .NET Business Rule Management System for the Microsoft platform, today announced InRule® for Microsoft Dynamics® CRM, which enables custom decision logic through the use of business rules within Dynamics CRM.

Powered by irX™ for CRM

InRule for Microsoft Dynamics CRM fully leverages InRule's rule authoring component, irAuthor®, and its high performance execution engine irServer®. It also includes irX for CRM, a patent-pending extension to irAuthor that provides the ability to author, update, and test rules for use within Dynamics CRM – without code. The offering also includes InRule Technology's implementation guide for prescriptive guidance using rules with CRM.

Rule Customization with No Coding

InRule for Microsoft Dynamics CRM enables business analysts and other subject matter experts to author and maintain complex decision logic that otherwise requires Java script or hard code. Users can easily import entities, fields and relationships from Dynamics CRM using a wizard, and rule authoring is simplified with an intuitive, configurable interface. Rule authoring and management are tightly integrated with Dynamics CRM, making the user experience familiar and easy to learn.

Test Changes Without Modifying Data

Users can easily validate the performance and results of rules without manually entering test data. InRule for Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides simple selection of records for single-record testing and for multi-record regression testing to ensure that rule changes don't adversely affect existing functionality.

Example Use Cases

Customized decision logic within Dynamics CRM is useful for applications in a wide variety of industries. Typical uses include:

  • Geography-specific rules (such as tax calculations) and time-specific rules
  • Complex scoring or rating
  • Routing or assigning records
  • Data validation
  • Forms customization, for example show or hide fields
