Importing Duplicate Detection Rules

Since early versions of Dynamics 365, we have been using Duplicate Detection rules and it is a handy feature. Ironically, still we can't import those rules with Solution. In most cases, users configure them in different environment and its not a big deal. Still, it can be error-prone and inconsistent.

So alternative is to consider Duplicate Detection Rule entities as reference data and import them using Configuration Migration Tool coming with SDK. Usually you will find this tool in below location of the SDK;


Anyway, below are the two points to keep in mind when importing Duplicate Detection rules;

1) Rules should be Unpublished before importing.
2) Need to include both Duplicate Detection Rule and Duplicate Rule Condition in correct Order.

Hope this helps.
