3 steps to integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales using Web API

This blog will act as a reference for creating an OAuth web application for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales to interact with the Web API. We have done the grunt work and have listed out just the resources you need to integrate.

This post is not an in-depth tutorial on how to build OAuth apps in general, some prior knowledge of how OAuth apps work is required.


You'd need an onmicrosoft.com account. If you don't have one, signup here.

At the end of the signup flow, you will end up at the Power Platform admin center. Just click "Cancel" when prompted to create an Environment.

Sign up for Dynamics 365 Sales

  1. Visit Dynamics 365 Sales Free Trial page and click on Try for free.

  2. Enter your onmicrosoft.com email and click "Start your free trial".

Create an application on Azure AD

  1. Visit the App registration page on Azure AD

  2. Click "New Registration"

  3. Enter details of the app, with the redirect URI.

  4. Select the account type based on whether you want to make this OAuth app available to others (Multitenant) or if you want to use it only in your organization (Single tenant).

  5. Submit the form by clicking "Register"

  6. You can get your OAuth Client ID in the Overview tab, copy and store it somewhere.

  7. On the app details page, click "Manifest" on the sidebar and change the value of allowPublicClient in the JSON editor to true

  8. Click "API permissions" and click "Add a permission"

  9. Select "Dynamics CRM"

  10. Check "user_impersonation" permission and click "Add permissions" at the bottom.

  11. You can also grant admin consent for your organization by clicking, "Grant admin consent for ..."

  12. Click "Certificates & secrets" and click "New client secret"

  13. Enter a friendly name for the secret and click "Add"

  14. You will be shown the Client Secret for the OAuth app, copy it and store it somewhere safe.

Post creating an OAuth application, you can either use Microsoft's Authentication libraries to add OAuth flow into your web application or any other OAuth client library, you can find the OAuth URLs and flows here.

You can also test out the Dynamics 365 Sales API using Postman by following the instructions here.

Get your Web API Endpoint

  1. Visit Power Apps dashboard.

  2. Click the Environment selector on the top right and select the "Sales Trial" environment. This environment is created when you sign up for the trial of Dynamics 365 Sales on the first step.

  3. Click the Cog icon beside the Environment selector and click "Developer resources"

  4. The Web API endpoint will be listed.

For information on how to make requests, refer the guide by Microsoft here.

For information about the entities of Dynamics 365 Sales, refer the Web API reference.
