Business Central is now available in Microsoft Graph – could this be the end of RapidStart?
Business Central API in Microsoft Graph
Dynamics 365 Business Central is now available in Microsoft Graph as an endpoint. This means that the Dynamics 365 Business Central API allows you to read and modify data through apps that are connected through a single endpoint. You can use Microsoft Graph to access and manage your financials, work with business contacts, create and send sales and purchasing documents, and gain insights from financial reports.
Synchronize your business applications
Many companies use different, disconnected business applications to manage various functions of the business. Microsoft Graph enables you to connect the data to bring these applications together. So you are able to:
- Connect your payroll application to employee records;
- Connect your expense application to vendor records;
- Have your CRM application keep your customer records up to date.
Microsoft Graph provides access to your financial reports. Connect BI tools and apps to your balance sheet, cash flow statement, payables and receivables aging reports, and trial balance reports to create BI dashboards and ensure that users have access to the information they need.
The end of RapidStart?
Microsoft provides a list of the currently available APIs for Business Central (link). This list will grow overtime and imagine what could be the opportunities when you have APIs for;
- Reading and creating Sales Documents
- Reading and creating Purchase Documents
- Retrieving Item Ledger Entries
- Retrieving Warehouse Entries
- Reading and creating Warehouse documents
- Reading and creating Jobs
- Reading and creating Sales and Purchase Prices
These are top requested from customers and a must have for handling integrations and/or massive data loading (D365BC Ideas: please vote!).
So when we have a lot of APIs for Business Central available we also could configure the Business Central tenant and migrate the customer data to Business Central through the APIs instead of using RapidStart.
The Dynamics 365 Business Central API can open up new ways for you to engage with users. To learn more, see the following sources:
