If you’re integrating Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations with 3rd parties, and your organization or the 3rd party one are using a firewall, you might’ve found yourself in the scenario of being asked “which is the production/sandbox IP address?”.
So, what should I do if I have a firewall and need to allow access to/from Dynamics 365 F&O or any other Azure service? The network team usually doesn’t like the answer: if you can’t allow a FQDN, you should open all the address ranges for the datacenter and service you want to access. And that’s a lot of addresses that make the network team sad.
In today’s post, I’ll show you a way to keep an eye on the ranges provided by Microsoft, and hopefully make our life easier.
It’s already that time of the year again, the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform 2023 Release Wave 1 plans have just been released!
The 2023 release wave 1 for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations is focused on improving the development, administration, and user experiences by removing barriers, tightening integrations, and enhancing cross-platform capabilities. This release will bring a range of new features and capabilities that will help improve the performance of the platform and enhance the overall experience for developers, administrators, and end-users.
The features described here are planned to be delivered from April to September 2023.
And now you might be asking yourself, how do I move the Dual-write table mappings to a test or production environment from the development environment? Do I need to repeat everything I’ve done on the dev machine in a Sandbox environment?
Since Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations version 10.0.12 we’ve been able to use FnO (public) data entities as Dataverse Virtual Entities. This will allow us to create model-driven Power Apps for Finance and Operations entities without having to copy data between Finance and Operations and Dataverse. This opens a lot of scenarios and new ways of integrating MSDyn365FO with Customer Engagement.

This past weekend I’ve attended my third 365 Saturday, this time in Barcelona, as a speaker. As you can see in the post title my session has been about creating inventory counting journals using AI with the Power Platform.
