Connecting the OData Endpoints (Dynamics 365)

Before you can begin using the integration you must map to the user defined OData endpoints. From the integration interface, navigate to Options > View Modules to open the Enabled Modules screen. Select the Endpoint Mapping Interface and click Configure Module.

When the Endpoint Mapping Interface opens, it will attempt to validate your mappings. There are 3 possible validation responses.

  1. Not all Endpoints have been mapped.

  2. At least 1 endpoint failed to validate. Would you like to save a log?

  3. Validation PASSED

This validation can also be run manually after the 365 Endpoint Mapper has opened by clicking the Validate button. To begin mapping to exposed 365 endpoints, click to select the 365 Endpoint for each required 365 Interface.

As you populate the 365 Endpoint mappings, validation logic will run and check off the Valid? checkbox for each row. If a row does not check the Valid? checkbox, you can use the Validate button to generate a log containing details. In this case response #2 will display providing the option to save a log. Review of this log will indicate why the validation for a particular endpoint may have failed. Generally, this occurs when a field is missing from the endpoint’s Page object. See Additional OData Configuration for details on adding missing fields to an endpoint Page.

After completing the Endpoint mappings, it is recommended to use the Export Mappings button to store your defined mappings. This allows for quickly importing your mappings back into the integration using the Import Mappings button. This is useful in the event that the integration needs to be installed on a new workstation or reinstalled for any reason. We recommend storing your mappings.json export in the same location as the integration’s activation license.
