MS Dynamics 365 Setup

  • Updated

The MS Dynamics 365 Synapse enables data synchronization between MS Dynamics 365 objects and Syncari entities using the MS Dynamics 365 API. After the Synapse is Authenticated, a user can Activate the MS Dynamics 365 Synapse, which enables Syncari to replicate the schema of MS Dynamics 365 and make it available within the Unified Data Model. Using the Sync Studio, a user can map MS Dynamics 365 objects to Syncari entities, and MS Dynamics 365 fields to Syncari fields. To accelerate the setup and configuration of these pipelines, Syncari provides a default mapping for the standard objects and fields in MS Dynamics 365. 

If your Dynamics security requires you to whitelist an IP you can find that here.
