Four years ago, I wrote a blog post about a way to do bulk delete of Microsoft Dynamics CRM records using Scribe Insight:http://www.mohamedibrahim.net/blog/2009/09/23/microsoft-dynamics-crm-bulk-delete-methods-using-scribe-insight-for-bulk-delete-dynamics-crm-records/
The post has been popular for a work around to do bulk delete before CRM 2011 came with the bulk delete system job (that wasn’t available before). Just recently, Scribe has released new version update which is Scribe Insight 7.6 and which includes bulk delete and bulk import functionality for its steps.
These new features have proven to be very popular amongst Scribe technical users and have recently been voted as the most required functionality in Scribe.
The advantage of bulk delete is clear where you can just delete all records of a specific entity in Dynamics CRM case.
The bulk insert into Dynamics CRM is even more useful as it means that Scribe will insert all records in one open connection rather than row by row if you select the just “insert” option. This means that Scribe will open one connection to Dynamics CRM API and insert all records then close the connection in contrast to inserting row by row if the bulk option is not selected.
Here is a screenshot of how the new bulk insert and bulk delete features look in Scribe Workbench DTS Step configuration:
