Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector for Logic App gets an update

Last week Microsoft released an update for Dynamics 365 Connector for Logic App, there are few long-awaited features in this update which I am excited about.

With this update Microsoft have added support for option sets being exposed as strings in the response, this used to be a challenge earlier as Optionset value and mapping had to be hardcoded in the Logic app or Azure Functions.

the difference in the options set value in the output:

 

This update also adds a new trigger “When a record is created or updated”, allowing your logic app to be triggered on Create or update of a record, this removes the need to have redundant Logic app for the update and create scenarios especially if your data integration is synchronizing data irrespective of Create or Update.

Microsoft has ensured the changes don’t break any of your current integrations and as such, all the updates are provided as new action/triggers, the new items are:
New Actions:

  • Create a new record (V2)
  • Get record (V2)
  • List records (V2)
  • Update a record (V2)

New Triggers:

  • When a record is created (V2)
  • When a record is created or updated
