I am new to dynamics and I try to find a good starting point for my problem. Hopefully someone can give me a hint.


When sales user add a product to a quote I want to pull available quantity from our external company api and put the data into the available quantity field on that entity.

Do I need to build an plugin an react on created event to pull & put the data? Or should I connect the external api via a dataflow / data connector into dynamics to run a business rule on that?

Some the user also want to bulk upload 1k products.

I already read a lot about dynamics but I still found no solution for my use case. I guess a lot of dynamics sales customer already found a solution for that. 

BTW: We are using a model driven app.

Many thanks! It’s also ok to just give me a hint 👍
