In the last   article   we looked at how to setup Postman to call D365 services. We called a simple existing service. In this article I will show you how to create a custom service in D365. Unlike calling a Data Entity which can create or retrieve data from tables, services allow us to run code within Microsoft Dynamics 365. This is very useful if for example you need to retrieve a value that is not stored in a table. Or you would like to run a process, and return whether it was successful or not. See this article for details: https://dynamics365musings.com/create-a-custom-service-in-d365/

In past articles we looked at how to use Postman to call D365 Data entities, and this is great when you just need to push in data.

In the last two posts, we setup a D365 Business Events endpoint, we associated it with the actual event and then we enabled the business events to be processed. But what if you need a custom D365 business event to be triggered during a different process than the predefined Microsoft locations? A custom business event is needed. During this post, I will show you the steps for creating a custom business event. In our case I will create a custom business event that sends the sales order status information, when a sales order packing slip is posted. https://dynamics365musings.com/how-to-setup-a-custom-d365-business-event/

n the last post we explained how to setup the endpoint for a D365 Business Event.   https://dynamics365musings.com/how-to-setup-d365-business-events-part-1/ Continuing that process, we will activate the D365 business event and connect it to the endpoint that we setup. This will cause the D365 business event message to be sent to the endpoint. https://dynamics365musings.com/how-to-setup-d365-business-event-part-2/

First off: What are D365 business events? D365 Business events allow external systems to receive messages from D365 Finance and Operations when certain operations happen within the system. So for instance, perhaps you need an external system to know when a sales order has been invoiced.  Using the built in functionality that business events provides this becomes a lot simpler than if you needed to code a customization. Lets set one up and see how they work. https://dynamics365musings.com/how-to-setup-d365-business-events-part-1/
