MSCRM – External Connector License
Integrating your CRM system with external world is a tricky business. For example if you need to gather customer information from your website and populate in your CRM system as leads you need an external connector license. This License is required to view, manipulate and query data by non-CRM user.
If you want to share Microsoft CRM data with external users such as your customers or partners, you can purchase an External Connector License that allows you to share Microsoft CRM data with an unlimited number of third-party users and systems.
By using the External Connector License, you do not need to purchase a user license (create an Active Directory Account) for each external user. For example, you can create and external Web Site that lets customer log on and retrieve Microsoft CRM data real time. You could also create a special Web site for your partners to enter and update Microsoft CRM data. You need and External Connector license for every server required to support external access.
