You have 3 principle Authentication Type options for the connection string: AD, SPLA and Passport.
Here's some sample connectionstrings that have been validated:
AD: (This works for the standard VPC image)
Authentication Type=AD;Server=http://crm/contoso; Password=pass@word1; User ID=contoso\administrator;
Authentication Type=SPLA; Server=http://server-name/organization; User ID=domain\user-name; Password=user-password
Authentication Type=Passport; Server=https://your-org-name.crm.dynamics.com/your-org-id; User ID=your-wlid; Password=your-password; Device ID=your-device-id; Device Password=your-device-password
For CRM Online you need to find the org-id, you can do this by going into
Settings --> Customization --> Download Web Service Description Files. You will see your org-id listed as
Organization Unique Name.
We'll update the documentation with better clarity around these settings.
We're also working on step-by-step videos. Thanks for your feedback and getting stuck into using the new portals!
