Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Portals Source Code

After taking over ADX Portal Microsoft stopped selling it for on-premise version of Dynamics CRM and only licensed Online version of Microsoft Portals. With this move many of the new Dynamics 365/CRM projects which required a portal on top of Dynamics 365/CRM backend had no possible alternative available in market.

Few months back Microsoft announced that there will be a one time drop of source code for Microsoft Portals which would be available for clients/SI looking for a on premise version to use in their projects.

After a long wait yesterday Microsoft released opensource version of Dynamics 365 Portal.
