In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations there are two APIs strategies that support file-based integration scenarios:
- Data management framework’s package API
- Recurring integrations API
Both APIs support data import and data export scenarios, and both use batches. Batch data APIs are considered asynchronous integration patterns because when these APIs are called, data is imported or exported in batch mode. However, calls to these APIs are synchronous. For example, a call to the ExportToPackage API schedules a job to import only a specific data package. The scheduling job is quickly returned (synchronously), and the work is done later in a batch (asynchronously). Therefore, batch data APIs are categorized as asynchronous.
In this article, we will review how to leverage Power Automate and the Data Management package REST API to extract data from Dynamics 365 Finance. We will use the example of extracting “Customer groups” in Dynamics 365 Finance. However, any
