If you are working in Dynamics 365 then most probably you have used or at least have heard about logic apps.
We had an urgent requirement where needed to read some data from a CSV file, then send it third party to update records on their system and then updated Dynamics 365
So in developer’s world, below is what we would need to do….
Develop an app, read data from csv, loop through each record, call third party api, send data, call dynamics, update data ……
So in above case, we are talking about at least 3-4 hours of work if you are comfortable with all coding bits……however we can achieve above with in 15 minutes using Logic App
Below is what we can do
Go to https://www.csvjson.com/csv2json and convert your csv into JSON data (as long as you have a record identifier in each row you want to use to update a record in third party or an other system
Create a new Logic App with HTTP trigger
Copy & paste JSON into following screen to generate schema
Create a new control of type for each
Add HTTP action and update details as needed including url, login etc.
Add JSON you need to send to third party API (sample below)
“Name”: “Hello there”
You can add more steps such as if you need to update Dynamics or any other systems and so on….
Save Logic App
Go to Postman or Fiddler
Call your Logic App url and pass JSON data you created from above website
