Overview of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises) PowerShell
The Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises) administration PowerShell module provides a set of cmdlets that you can use to manage Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises) deployments.
The Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement PowerShell cmdlets are backward and forward compatible. For example, you can run the latest Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises) Management PowerShell cmdlets against a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 deployment.
