D365 Cross Company Writing and Updating Records



Currently MS PowerApps is limited to writing data / updating records in the default company set on a user profile. There should be the ability to write / update records to all legal entities the user has access to.

Re: D365 Cross Company Writing and Updating Records

Hi @Luke_Timmins ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?


Currently, there is no official doc mentioned about the limits on writing data / updating records to D365 Entities.


Actually, the PowerApps app inherits data access permissions from data source itself. Please check if your end users have enough permission to access the data source.

In addition, some complex Entity or Restricted Entity need additional D365 licenses for it, please check if the Entity you want other users to access needs additional D365 licenses.


Best regards,

Re: D365 Cross Company Writing and Updating Records

Hi @v-xida-msft ,


Currently this may indeed be a D365 Finance and Operations issue but when you are writing data back to dynamics using the connector you can only create or modify records against the legal entity that has been set to your default in the user profile page. 


Often a user will work across different legal entities which then makes the citizen developer invent creative work around's . One of which is to update the users default legal entity within the app before trying to update a different legal entity. Another option is to have more than one account which has different default legal entity.


None of these work around's in my opinion are viable solutions. Especially if you have simultaneously running apps. 


I hope this all makes sense. 





p.s. this is not a security or licensing restrction I am setup as system admin and can access the required data entities, the issue is working cross legal entities. i.e. the cross-company odata parameter
