Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central CSV Integration
What can you integrate between
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and CSV?
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central + CSV Integration
Products are synced from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to CSV. Within this sync different types of products are supported. APIcenter gathers the data from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, then it is run through the APIcenter to have the correct settings, values and formats before it is send to CSV. Products are created or updated based on the SKU.
You can differentiate within APIcenter the behaviour between creating and updating products. For example when APIcenter creates a product and sends in the long description from the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, but if you enrich the data after this in CSV, you don't want to have it overwritten with an update. For this you can set a checkbox to update the product info.
Supported product types: Simple, virtual, variant/configurable products.
Besides the generic and custom added fields from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central also Item Attributes from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central are supported. These needs to be manually mapped in APIcenter.
Attributes are used for creating configurable products, like size/color/options. Features are used as extra information fields, think about country of origin, type, delivery time etc.
Categories can be created or updated from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to CSV.
Images are supported from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to CSV. Please be aware that Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central only supports 1 image.
You can map extra fields that are available in the API. For a default working integrations we already mapped the basic fields that are needed; for example

You can set the value towards target system if you want to have the stock managed or not.
Orders can be synced from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to CSV or from CSV to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
You can set the status on which orders are send from CSV, like only the paid orders.
Once APIcenter retrieves the order data it is processed, add missing data(for example mandatory data for business central like Business Posting Group) and start the send process towards Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. First APIcenter checks if the order already exists, if it exists we skip the order. If it does not exists APIcenter checks if the customer exists and depending on the outcome create or update the customer. APIcenter checks if all products exist and then the order is committed.
APIcenter differentiates in creating the customer based upon the source data received. If APIcenter receives from the source a company name then a company debtor is created with the underlying contact. If there is no company then a person debtor is created.
The check on customer exists is done per default by email address.
You can determine what type of order you want to send towards Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Our Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central integrations support Orders or Invoices.
