• Create Data-Oriented Apps Faster

    DataConnectors provides fast and direct access to Dynamics 365 Sales services. It hides the complexity of connecting to Dynamics and offers a unified interface for performing common operations, such as queries and updates, against Dynamics and other data sources.

  • Manage Data More Efficiently

    Integrate data from Dynamics 365 into your custom applications without relying on additional software. This empowers end-users to manage data more efficiently and, ultimately, gain better insights.

  • Connect to Dynamics 365 from Any Platform

    The DataConnectors library is built against .NET Standard from the ground up so it's supported across Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile device platforms.

ADO.NET, Entity Framework Core & LINQ Support

Connect to Dynamics 365 Sales data using standard ADO.NET objects and Entity Framework Core. The data connector uses ADO.NET objects like C1D365SConnection, C1D365SCommand, and C1D365SDataAdapter to make it easy to set up a connection. It also has in-built support for LINQ queries for native .NET data queries.

OpenAuth Authentication Support

The Dynamics365 data connector supports OpenAuth-based authentication to help you protect your data through a secure connection. OpenAuth provides an open-standard authorization protocol or framework that describes how unrelated servers and services can safely allow authenticated access to their assets without actually sharing the initial, related, single login credential.

SQL Query Support

Query against Dynamics 365 Sales data using standard SQL syntax. The data connectors support most SQL functionality including joins queries, functions, and summaries.

CRUD Operations

In addition to querying, the data connectors support other CRUD operations such as insertion, updating, and deleting data. The data connector supports these operations using Command and DataAdapter objects. Also, performance could be enhanced in these operations by using the Batch feature to submit changes in chunks over the network.

Fast Cache Configuration

The data connector has in-built caching in order to support local availability of data for faster performance on repeat operations. You can set the cache settings in connection object to configure cache database.

More Data Integration Capabilities

While the Dynamics 365 Sales data connector focuses primarily on the connecting and querying, you can use it alongside other dominant .NET Standard and .NET Framework components to do a lot more.

  • Integrate Dynamics 365 data with C1DataCollection to provide filtering, grouping, data virtualization to your data-aware controls.
  • Import data from Dynamics 365 to C1DataEngine to analyze massive amounts of data in fractions of second.
  • Connect Dynamics 365 data to pivot grids & charts, such as FlexPivot, to analyze data visually
  • Create business reports using FlexReport and Dynamics 365 Sales for essential business tasks.
  • Display data output from Dynamics in a .NET FlexGrid control in desktop, web, or mobile devices.
