What is an entity in MS CRM

Entity in MS CRM used to manage business data. In simple terms we can refer entity as Table in database, and, each record in an entity can refer as a row in a table. And, each field in an entity can refer as a column in table.

There are three types of entities in MS CRM.

1. System
2. Business
3. Custom

As a developer, you will be dealing with Business and custom entities. System entites are purely internal usage of CRM. We cannot customize or delete system entites. Examples for system entities are workflows and asynchronous jobs etc.

Business entities are default entities CRM provide while installing. Examples for business entities are Contact, Account, Case etc.

Custom entities are entities which we will be create as per business requirement..
