Service to service authentication in Business Central 18.3 – How to set up

In the previous blog post, I’ve described the usage scenarios around OAuth client credentials flow for Business Central. In this post, I want to show how to set up this new feature. The next blog post will contain code examples of how to use it.

Please note that the steps explained below already work in the current version, but you need to wait for version 18.3 to be able to actually call the APIs.

The official documentation can be found here, which includes similar information. I’ll just try to clarify some of the steps and provide some screenshots.

Service to service authentication in Business Central 18.3 – Usage and license terms

Business Central 18.3 is just around the corner, and it comes with a long-awaited feature: support for OAuth client credentials flow, aka service-to-service authentication.

Many API integrations with Business Central SaaS are using the web service access key for basic authentication. But the 2022 release wave 1 (version 20) will remove this feature in favor of OAuth2. Since 2020 release wave 2 (version 17) a warning is displayed on the User card that the web service access key will be deprecated. This is only for SaaS and NOT for on-premise! For on-prem environments, the web service access key will still be an option.
