The ability to easily surface and interact with Common Data Service data on an externally facing web site is the core benefit for implementing a Dynamics 365 portal. This learning path describes how to transform a content portal into a full web app that interacts with Common Data Service. We will explain how to secure data access based on the authenticated user role and relationship to the data. We will also cover the options available to customizers and developers to extend the portal functionality and integrate with Office 365 and Power platform components.

Prerequisites

  • A basic understanding of how to navigate and customize Dynamics 365 apps.

However, there always will be some critical needs and functionality that will require custom development. While the hosted portal components cannot be changed or extended, the Dynamics 365 Portals provide many other various extension and integration methods for developers.
