Dynamics 365 Finance

Connect to your users' Dynamics 365 Finance account

Setup Guide

You can find your Dynamics 365 Finance app credentials in your Dynamics 365 Finance Developer Account.
You'll need the following information to set up your Dynamics 365 Finance App with Paragon Connect:
  • Client Key
  • Client Secret
  • Scopes Requested

Add the Redirect URL to your Dynamics 365 Finance app

Paragon provides a redirect URL to send information to your app. To add the redirect URL to your Dynamics 365 Finance app:
1. Copy the link under "Redirect URL" in your integration settings in Paragon. The Redirect URL is:
https://passport.useparagon.com/oauth
2. Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal using your Microsoft account.
3. Navigate to All Services > App Registrations and select your application.
4. Select Authentication from the sidebar.
5. Under Platform configurations, press the "Add a platform" button.
6. Select the Web platform.
7. Paste the Redirect URL from Step 1 under Redirect URIs.
8. Press the Save button at the top of the page.

Generate a Client Secret

Since Dynamics 365 Finance does not automatically provide you with a Client Secret for your application, we'll need to make one. To get your Client Secret:
1. Navigate to Manage > Certificates & secrets in the sidebar.
2. Under Client Secrets, press the + New client secret button.
3. Name your client credentials and select an expiry that works best for your application. Press Add to create your credentials.
4. Copy the displayed Client Secret under the Value column.

Add your Dynamics 365 Finance app to Paragon

1. Select Dynamics 365 Finance from the Integrations Catalog.
2. Under Integrations > Connected Integrations > {YOUR_APP} > Settings, fill out your credentials from the end of Step 1 in their respective sections:
  • Client ID: Found under Essentials > Application (client) ID on your Microsoft Azure Portal app page.
  • Client Secret:
    1. 1.
      Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal.
    2. 2.
      Navigate to Manage > Certificates & secrets in the sidebar.
    3. 3.
      Under Client Secrets, press the + New client secret button.
    4. 4.
      Name your client credentials and select an expiry that works best for your application.
    5. 5.
      Press Add to create your credentials.
    6. 6.
      Copy the displayed Client Secret under the Value column.
  • Permissions: Select the scopes you've requested for your application.
Press the blue "Connect" button to save your credentials.
Leaving the Client ID and Client Secret blank will use Paragon development keys.

Connecting to Dynamics 365 Finance

Once your users have connected their Dynamics 365 Finance account, you can use the Paragon SDK to access the Dynamics 365 Finance API on behalf of connected users.
See the Dynamics 365 Finance REST API documentation for their full API reference.
Any Dynamics 365 Finance API endpoints can be accessed with the Paragon SDK as shown in this example.
// You can find your project ID in the Overview tab of any Integration
// Authenticate the user
paragon.authenticate(<ProjectId>, <UserToken>);
// Get a list of customers
paragon.request("dynamicsfinance", "/Customers", {

});

paragon.request("dynamicsfinance", "/Vendors", {
