Database Movement API

Important

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations has evolved into purpose-built applications to help you manage specific business functions. For more information about these changes, see Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide.

The Database Movement application programming interface (API) is a RESTful endpoint that is used to manage the data lifecycle of Microsoft Dynamics 365 environments. It provides a versioned set of capabilities that you can currently use to copy databases between environments, and to list and download database backups. More supported actions will be added in later releases.
