Enterprise organizations use a multitude of line of business (LOB) applications that require information flow between their LOB applications. With Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (D365FO) hosted on Azure, there is a need to integrate data in and out of D365FO and on-premises LOB applications.
With D365FO in the cloud, integration focus is placed on new technologies e.g. web service integration, while file integration is limited to manual file import.
Axapta Masters’ newly launched product called ‘’D365 File-based integration’’ solution enables such integrations, in a very convenient way.
It will empower the users with the possibility to automate file-based integration scenarios to and from Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, simplifying this process for all parties who are involved, from integration solution builders to customer users.
Benefits and features
Automate file-based integration scenarios
can be used during the implementation phase of the project for data migration, ad hoc file integration needs and to be used as a proof of concept validator among others.
Supports different data source types for import
Support of the types of file such as .xml; csv; .excel
Schedule jobs and set their recurrence
It calls methods exposed by D365FO to import or export files and data packages. It allows the user to easily schedule jobs and set their recurrence.
Monitor integration status
Monitor status of D365FO internal processing of imported/exported data. Based on this status it can move input files to “status” folders (Processing, Success, Error).
History logs help you track and control the integration status activities. Every integration is recorded in form of log messages. These messages are stored in files which user can read from the application itself.
Set up e-mail notification
email notifications are used to email users in real time about the status of the internal processing of imported/exported files and data packages.
