Microsoft Dynamics

When you need your Microsoft Dynamics implementation tested and validated, we have you covered! Rapise includes include out of the box support for testing Dynamics AX, Dynamics CRM, and Dynamics 365.


Microsoft Dynamics is a line of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) software applications from Microsoft. The Microsoft Dynamics focus industries are retail, service, manufacturing, financial services, and the public sector. Microsoft Dynamics offers support for small, medium, and large businesses.

Rapise has special extensions included out of the box that allow it easily test and validate Microsoft Dynamics implementations, reducing the time to regression test customizations and configurations.

Dynamics AX

Microsoft Dynamics AX (formerly Axapta) - multi-language, multi-currency enterprise resource planning (ERP) business software with global business management features for financial, human resources, and operations management as well as additional industry capabilities for retailers, professional service industries, financial service businesses, manufacturers, and public-sector organizations

Rapise includes specialized libraries for testing Dynamics AX applications that are built-upon the standard Microsoft Windows UIAutomation library with special extensions for handling unique AX controls such as treeviews, the navigation explorer and the various grids used to edit data. In addition Rapise can test the following extensions to Dynamics AX:

Dynamics CRM

Microsoft Dynamics CRM is a customer relationship management application from Microsoft, that provides sales, service, and marketing capabilities. Microsoft sells Microsoft Dynamics CRM separately from the ERP products. CRM is available either as on-premises software or as a software-as-a-service offering called "Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online".

Rapise can be used to test installations of Dynamics CRM both on-premise and online.

Both versions of Dynamics CRM (server and online) are completely web-based and use a web browser to access the user interface. Therefore when recording a test using Rapise, you use the same web browser libraries that you use to record other web tests:

In addition, there are special controls inside CRM that Rapise has specialized support for. For that reason you'll also see the DomDynamicsCrm library added to your test as well as the browser one. This DomDynamicsCrm library adds additional rules that identify certain CRM objects to make testing easier.

Dynamics 365

Microsoft has created a new cloud-based SaaS-only combined ERP/CRM solution called Microsoft Dynamics 365. This provides a new web-based version of Dynamics AX (renamed Dynamics 365 for Operations), combined with a new web based version of Dynamics NAV (called Dynamics 365 for Financials) and an updated Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online (called Dynamics 365 for Sales).

This new integrated, ERP/CRM is provided solely through Microsoft Azure and is completely web-based.

Rapise can test instances of Microsoft Dynamics 365 using a combination of its standard web libraries and special extensions developed for Dynamics 365. Rapise has support for both Dynamics 365 for Operations and Dynamics 365 for Sales:
