Privacy notice

By enabling the website capabilities for Dynamics 365, Dynamics 365 data, such as customer name, product name, case number, or any custom entity data, can be exposed through an external-facing Dynamics 365 website. Any data exposed through the website is stored in memory in Microsoft Azure Web Apps for caching and also as files on the local hard drive to enable website search functionality.

A tenant administrator enables Dynamics 365 websites by configuring it through the Power Platform admin center, which also installs a package (with solutions and data) in the selected Dynamics 365 instance. A tenant administrator or a Dynamics 365 user set up as a Portal Administrator can then specify the data that will be exposed through the website. To later disable the website capabilities, a tenant administrator can cancel the Portal Add-on subscription with Office 365.

Important Azure components and services that are involved with the website capabilities are:

  • Azure Web Apps: Azure Web Apps are used to host the website in Azure.
  • Azure Traffic Manager: Azure Traffic Manager is used to ensure the high availability of the service by routing the user to the Web Apps that's up and running.
  • Azure Service Bus: Azure Service Bus (Topics/Subscriptions) is used for cache invalidation of the websites. Azure Service Bus temporarily stores the messages, which are triggered when any website-related record is changed in Dynamics 365, and are passed along to Web Apps to do the cache invalidation.
  • Azure Key Vault: All services store configuration data in Azure Key Vault.
  • Azure Storage: Data related to the organization, tenant, and website is stored in Azure Storage.
  • Microsoft Entra ID: All the web services use Microsoft Entra ID to authenticate.
