In that post the Json request was just a simple contact object with a few data fields that we inserted into Dynamics 365. Did know … [Read more...] about Flow – Http Request – Split On Collection
One of the never ending challenges of using Dynamics 365 was how to generate and email PDF's using data from Dynamics. While Word templates went some way towards solving the problem they have not been improved for a number of years. So generating PDF's usually requires third party tools. With the release of the new Word Online (Business) connector for Flow and Logic … [Read more...] about Flow to Email PDF from Dynamics 365 using the Word Online Connector
While doing some testing recently with Logic Apps I had some workflows fail with a status code of 429 when calling Dynamics 365 actions. A 429 status code indicates that the number of API calls to Dynamics 365 in one minute has been exceeded. This post explains how you can configure the concurrency setting of a Logic Apps workflow to avoid this problem. … [Read more...] about Logic Apps 429 Failure calling Dynamics 365
Up until recently synchronizing data in in the cloud with an on premise database was a major challenge which typically involved writing code. With the Digital Transformation revolution and the availability of a range of integration offerings in Azure this is no longer the case. Here is a sample Microsoft Flow which demonstrate how the creation of a contact record in Dynamics … [Read more...] about Flow to Synch Dynamics 365 with an On Premise Database

You can design your Json scheme specifically for your partners so that is is easy to use and understand. This provides your integation partners with an API … [Read more...] about Json Schema Validation in Logic Apps and Flow
