Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales targets in synchronization tasks

You can use a single object as a target in a synchronization task. You can configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM target properties on the Target page of the Synchronization Task Wizard. When the source is partitioned and you write data to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the Secure Agent uses the pass-through partitioning.
The following table describes the Microsoft Dynamics CRM target properties:
Property
Description
Connection
Name of the target connection.
Target Object
Name of the target object.
Display technical names instead of labels
Displays technical names instead of business names.
Display target fields in alphabetical order
Displays target fields in alphabetical order instead of the order returned by the source system.
When you configure a synchronization task to use a Microsoft Dynamics CRM target, you can configure advanced target properties. Advanced target properties appear on the Schedule page of the Synchronization Task Wizard.
The following table describes the Microsoft Dynamics CRM advanced target properties:
Advanced Property
Description
Ignore Null Values
If you select the check box, the update operation ignores the null value for the column.
By default, the Ignore Null Values check box is not selected, and the update operation updates the column with the null value.
Alternate Key Name
Specifies the name of the key created in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales. You can use alternate key in update, delete, and upsert operations.
Alternate key contains one or more fields. Map all the fields or attributes that are part of the alternate key.
If you map both primary key and alternate key attributes in a mapping, the primary key takes precedence over the alternate key.
