Privacy notice

By installing and enabling the Microsoft Dynamics 365 - Gamification solution, the enabling user’s account identifiers (such as first name, last name, and email address) will be stored in Azure to allow for authorization with the Gamification service, which is hosted in Azure. This applies to all users that are enabled in the Gamification service by their administrator. The Gamification solution sends Key Performance Indicators (KPI) data, configured by an administrator, to the Azure service, and that data is stored in Azure structured storage as well as blob storage. Each user’s Avatar, Custom Awards, and Company Logo are stored in Azure, but the information is not returned to Dynamics 365.

Note that administrators and authorized users can leverage Dynamics 365 data, such as phone calls, opportunities, and booked revenue to configure KPIs for use in games. The Gamification service does not initiate any calls to Dynamics 365 and only responds to data, such as games where the KPIs are being used, that flows back to Dynamics 365.

An administrator can also enable the Gamification TV stream to be made public. Game managers who set up Gamification TV streams and enable public streaming will allow for the TV stream to be viewed by anyone on the Internet who has the stream link.

An administrator can subsequently remove the Gamification functionality by uninstalling this solution from the Microsoft Dynamics 365 organization.

Azure components and services that are involved with Gamification are detailed in the following sections.

Note: For more information about additional Azure service offerings, see the Microsoft Azure Trust Center.

Cloud Services

Designer Service (Web Role)

This provides multiple Web Services for communication between a Dynamics 365 organization and the multi-tenanted Gamification Azure components. For example, gamification details stored to Azure SQL Storage. Game calculations use Azure Service Bus queue and returned to be scored and shown in the service. Customer and user uploaded images are stored in Azure Blob Storage. All requests are authenticated against Azure Active Directory.

Azure Key Vault

All services store configuration data in Azure Key Vault.

Azure SQL Database

Gamification uses SQL Azure to store:

  • KPI data

  • Game calculations

  • Organization (tenant) data

Azure Blob Storage

Avatars, company logos, and other customer uploaded images are stored in Azure Blob Storage.

Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Gamification uses Azure Content Delivery Network to serve static content to the runtime such as images (including uploaded images such as customer logos), JavaScript, and CSS.

Azure Active Directory

Gamification uses Azure Active Directory to authenticate users and determine eligibility to use the platform.
