Tables from Business Central are exposed as virtual tables to Microsoft Dataverse. In Microsoft Dataverse, virtual tables will appear as if they were physical tables, enabling consumption for Microsoft Dataverse solutions.
With the capability of consuming virtual tables from Business Central in Microsoft Dataverse, Power Apps can leverage Business Central virtual tables directly, as if they were native Microsoft Dataverse tables.
The underlying infrastructure to expose virtual tables from Business Central is based on API pages. Enabling the virtual tables on Microsoft Dataverse will require that a Microsoft Dataverse solution is installed. The solution will be able to generate virtual tables based on the metadata of the APIs exposed on the connected Business Central tenant. This will enable developers to create APIs for Business Central and then generate virtual tables on Microsoft Dataverse.
