Deprecation of Dynamics 365 Regional Discovery service

Introduction

Due to the deprecation of the Dynamics 365 Regional Discovery service and the complete shut down of the service on the 21st of April 2021, Nintex are releasing fix packs for all K2 versions to enable customers to continue without interruptions. 

If the Fix Pack is not applied a 404 error will occur when using the Dynamics 365 CRM Service Instance.

How to know if you need to install this Fix Pack

  1. If you have a CRM Service Instance and your CRM Service Instance URL starts with https://disco.crm......, then you need to install this Fix Pack.
  2. If you have a CRM Functions Service Instance, you need to view the Input Property to see if the URL starts with https://disco.crm......, then you need to install this Fix Pack.

NOTE: After installing the Fix Pack, the URL will still display as https://disco.crm. The fix is to automatically replace this in the background with the correct URL.
