CRM Solution Entity Segments

Hello Friend!!!

This is a tutorial explains an exciting feature on solution management (Solution Segmentation) in CRM 2016.

With solution segmentation we can now export solutions with selected entity assets (fields, forms, views, etc.) rather than entire entities with all the assets.

This helps a lot as previously if we were required to deploy a single new view created for an entity, we were required to deploy and publish the complete entity. This used to end up deploying some under development depended components too. The feature is most importantly useful in applying patches.

This feature allows granular control of the solution package without changing any XML. This will make ALM and Deployments much smoother.
