How to – Use Azure Data Factory V2 to load data into Dynamics 365


Let us take a simple example where we will set up an Azure Data Factory instance and use Copy data activity to move data from the Azure SQL database to Dynamics 365.

Login to Azure Portal.

https://portal.azure.com

Search for Data factories

Create a new data factory instance

Once the deployment is successful, click on Go to resource

Inside the data factory click on Author & Monitor

Click on Author in the left navigation

Create a new Pipeline

And drag the Copy data activity to it

Go to the Source tab, and create a new dataset.

Below is our Azure SQL database with contacts table which will be our source here.


Select Azure SQL Database as the source dataset.


Create a new linked service to specify the connection properties.


Specify the details to connect to the Azure SQL Database.


We have selected the contacts table here.


Similarly, let us define a new dataset for Sink which will connect to our Dynamics 365 Instance.



Select the Dynamics data set and specify the linked service.

Specify the details of the Dynamics 365 instance to connect to.

We have selected contact entity as the destination.

Within the Mapping tab, we can specify the fields to be mapped.

Below is how we have specified the mapping.

Click on Validate and after successful validation, click on Debug to run the pipeline.

Within the Output window, we can see the status.

After the successful run, we can see the contact records created inside Dynamics 365.

We can specify a trigger for the pipeline as shown below.

Publish All will publish the changes to the data factory.

Hope it helps..
