Trigger when field is updated in D365 F&O

Hi there!

 

I'm a newbie in the field of connecting Dynamics 365 and Power Automate 😊. I would like to create a Power Automate flow that is connected to my Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations demo environment. This flow should be triggered by an update or a change in a field of a certain record, for instance a change in data of a certain customer or a fixed asset in my D365 F&O environment. Which trigger should be used in this flow? 

 

Thanks in advance,

Angela

Hi @AngelaBrinkman,


You could create an alert rule in Dynamics 365 F&O for this event. From Power Automate flow you could use the Category alerts and the Business event 'When an alert rule is triggered' in the When a Business event occurs.

 

In the settings of the action you filter for your specific alert rule id.

 

Below is an example of that approach.

 

@equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/RuleId'], '000073')

Thank you very much @Expiscornovus for your detailed answer! I managed to solve this problem by using a Dual Write solution and the Dataverse connector, but this seems much easier so I will try this too, thank you :).

Hi @AngelaBrinkman,

 

Yes, enabling Dual-Write for F&O can be a bit more work 😁
