Business Central Workflows with Power Automate integration
Workflows in Business Central can be managed in two ways:
– Native mode
– Via Power Automate
A few months ago my esteemed colleague Patrick LeBlanc published a great video showing how you could use Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow) to send an email when a Power BI alert is triggered. This post is going to cover almost the same ground, except that I’m going to show you how to send an alert to a user via Teams and instead of dynamically generating text for the message I’m going to use an Adaptive Card to format the alert data.
During NAV TechDays 2019 there were a lot of sessions that I would describe as “develop Business Central doing minimum development using AL“. Sounds weird? For me yes… at least at the beginning.
Speakers, such as Arend-Jan Kauffmann (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cp848e9WBFs), showed how to connect Business Central with Power Apps or use Power Automate (previously named Flow) and our BC. And my first impression was – noooo way it can be so easy.
This is a continuation of our previous post, with further examples of how to utilize Windows PowerShell from Dynamics NAV. The samples provided here just demonstrate how easy it can be to integrate the two, so you can build on this using any of the great (Dynamics NAV) PowerShell tools out there from a familiar development environment.
The Coffee Break Team is back, and this time we will unite the best of the two worlds and show how we can utilize the power of Windows PowerShell, using your favorite application: Dynamics NAV. While we do recognize that scripting complex PowerShell tools and modules is not to everyone’s taste, C/AL is something we all do in Dynamics NAV world. So let’s put them together and see how you can extend your application with PowerShell.
