One of the best ways to integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central with other systems is through APIs. They offer the possibility to trigger Business Central logic through Bound Actions. In this article, you will learn what are they, how to use standard bound actions, and how to create custom ones.
In Standard API for Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS (Get, Post, Patch, Delete and Basic query parameters – filter, orderby, select…), we discussed four basic operations (Read, Create, , Update, Delete) in the APIs. If we need to call custom code or specific actions like posting a sales order, we need to use Bound Actions.
I’ve promised this post to some attendees of my last Dynamics 365 Business Central development workshop in Microsoft Italy (c/o Microsoft House) last week.
Question was: How can I call Dynamics 365 Business Central logic from an external application? Simple answer given by all: you can publish a codeunit as web service and use the SOAP endpoint.
