Summary:

If a system is upgraded from 7.1 to 7.2, does the sql_identity table still get used?

Is there a difference in the method of generating IDs between a system upgraded to CRM 7.2 and a fresh install of CRM 7.2?

Solution:

Systems upgraded from 7.1 to 7.2 will still use the eware_get_identity_id stored procedure. Please see chapter 4 of the CRM 7.2 Installation and upgrade guide.

Fresh installs of CRM 7.2 will use the inbuilt MS SQL Server SQL identities for the generation of unique IDs.

It’s not recommended to convert a system using our generated IDs to a system using SQL Identifiers.
