1:N and N:1 relationships in Dynamics CRM

There are the types of relationships that we will be creating most frequently in Dynamics CRM.
 
1:N – The relationship between Contact and Asset is a typical 1:N relationship. Each contact may have many different assets associated to them.
 
N:1 – If we see the same relationship from the Asset entity, then the relationship back to Contacts can be said to be N:1. In simple words, many assets are related back to a single contact.
 
For implementing above example in Dynamics CRM, we should create a Contact Look up attribute on Asset entity.
 
Hope this helps.

Happy CRM’ing
