Business value

Getting new data, or updates to existing data, to Business Central quickly is vital in some business scenarios. This is particularly true in scenarios that include integrations to e-commerce systems. Scheduled data synchronization just doesn't meet the bar in today's fast-paced world. This capability enables Business Central to immediately pick up data that's added or changed in Dataverse or Dynamics 365 Sales.

Feature details

You can now notify Business Central of changes that occur in specific entities in Microsoft Dataverse. To trigger such changes, you'll need to do the following:

  • Create a Power Automate automated cloud flow that is triggered when changes are detected in standard or custom entities that are being synchronized.

When Business Central receives the notification, it will pick up the new or changed records in the entities you're tracking.
