Microsoft Dynamics 365

Setup Guide

You can find your Microsoft Dynamics 365 application credentials by visiting your Microsoft Azure Portal.
You'll need the following information to set up your Microsoft Dynamics 365 app with Paragon Connect:
    Client ID
    Client Secret
    Scopes Requested

Prerequisites

Add the Redirect URL to your Microsoft Dynamics 365 app

Paragon provides a redirect URL to send information to your app. To add the redirect URL to your Microsoft Dynamics 365 app:
1. Copy the link under "Redirect URL" in your integration settings in Paragon. The Redirect URL is:
1
https://passport.useparagon.com/oauth
Copied!
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 Microsoft Dynamics 365 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.

Add your Microsoft Teams app to Paragon

1. Select Microsoft Teams from the Integrations Catalog.
2. Under Integrations > Connected Integrations > {YOUR_APP} > Settings, fill out your credentials from the end of Step 1in their respective sections:
    Client ID: Found under Essentials > Application (client) ID on your Microsoft Azure Portal app page.
    Client Secret:
      1.
      Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal.
      2.
      Navigate to Manage > Certificates & secrets in the sidebar.
      3.
      Under Client Secrets, press the + New client secret button.
      4.
      Name your client credentials and select an expiry that works best for your application.
      5.
      Press Add to create your credentials.
      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.
Note: You should only add the scopes you've requested in your application page to Paragon.

Connecting to Microsoft Dynamics 365

Once your users have connected their Microsoft Dynamics 365 account, you can use the Paragon SDK to access the Microsoft Dynamics 365 API on behalf of connected users.
See the Microsoft Dynamics 365 REST API documentation for their full API reference.
Any Microsoft Dynamics 365 API endpoints can be accessed with the Paragon SDK as shown in this example:
1
// You can find your project ID in the Overview tab of any Integration
2
3
// Authenticate the user
4
paragon.authenticate(<ProjectId>, <UserToken>);
5
6
// Create an Account
7
await paragon.request("microsoftDynamics", "/accounts", {
8
method: "POST",
9
body: { "name": "Sample Account" }
10
});
11
12
13
// Query Accounts by number of employees
14
await paragon.request("microsoftDynamics", "/accounts?$filter=Microsoft.Dynamics.CRM.Between(PropertyName='numberofemployees',PropertyValues=["5","2000"])
15
method: "GET"
16
});
Copied!

Building Microsoft Dynamics 365 workflows

Once your Microsoft Dynamics 365 account is connected, you can add steps to perform the following actions:
    Create Record
    Update Record
    Get Record by ID
    Search Records
    Delete Record by ID
When creating or updating records in Microsoft Dynamics 365, you can reference data from previous steps by typing {{ to invoke the variable menu.
