A note on the data provider

A virtual entity type is associated with a virtual entity data provider.

Please note the following about the OData v4 Data Provider we ship with Dynamics 365:

  • We’ll be updating the OData Provider semi-weekly out of band from other online updates
  • It’s a solution installed by default
  • Updates must be applied by managing the solutions installed for a particular instance in the admin center
  • Status will be “Upgrade available” when there is something to install
