The easy way to compare environments


Have you ever had to compare two CDS/D365 environments and see what the differences were? Maybe you want to do a data migration into an existing environment to combine environments, and you need to know what the field and metadata differences are between the two environments.

Traditionally I would export the xml and compare in Notepad+ or some other tedious method, but I discovered (thanks to Tanguy Touzard’s recommendation) that there is a tool in the XrmToolBox plugin store that makes the job much easier.

Introducing the System Customization Comparer.

This awesome tool was created by Lars Muller, and it lets you select a source and target environment

Then it will compare the metadata, showing you the differences in entities, fields, and views.

Thank you Lars for making a frustrating task less frustrating.
