In this post we mention the Virtual Entities (in preview mode) that will soon change the approach for integrations between Business Central and Common data services, in addition to the use of Web Services and OData.
Business Central 2020 release wave 2 give us a new possibility. If we only want to pass data from BC to CDS – now we don’t need to create Entity in CDS. We could use existing APIs as virtual entities in it.
Probably you could want to read my previous articles about CDS Setup and Replicating BC data to CDS.
Today we set up Common Data Service connection for our Business Central environment.
I really appreciate Renato Fajdiga for his blog about this topic but I think I could add more details to that. Also I’m planning additional articles about CDS integration and you’ll need initial setup to start with.
