What AD Groups does Dynamics CRM create?


It is always interesting how questions come in clusters.  This one has been posed to me about 5 times in the last few weeks.  So, here is the answer for everyone’s benefit.

Dynamics CRM will create the following 5 groups in Active Directly when it is installed.  These are placed in the OU that you selected during the installation.

PrivReportingGroup Users that should have privileged access to reporting.
PrivUserGroup A Privileged user
ReportingGroup Gives user’s access to the SRS reports
SQLAccessGroup Gives users access to the Filtered Views


Defines the users as a Dynamics CRM user.


Note that CRM’s security privilege groups that you define in CRM in the Settings area are NOT Active Directory groups!  Those remain within the organization’s <org>_MSCRM database.
