To complete this integration, please make sure that you have the necessary software installed and configured as indicated in this guide, accounting for any network considerations.

Applicable Versions

  • BeyondTrust Remote Support: 14.x and newer
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM: 2016

Network Considerations

The following network communication channels must be open for the integration to work properly.

Outbound From Inbound To TCP Port # Purpose

The BeyondTrust Middleware Engine server receives outbound events from the appliance. However, if polling is used instead of outbound events, then this port does not have to be open.

Prerequisite Installation and Configuration

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration is a BeyondTrust Middleware Engine plugin. To install the BeyondTrust Middleware Engine, follow the instructions in the BeyondTrust Middleware Engine Configuration document. The BeyondTrust Middleware Engine Configuration document is also useful to understand how to work with the middleware engine.
