Entity reference for Dynamics 365 Guides (for developers)

Note

Effective November 2020:

  • Common Data Service has been renamed to Microsoft Dataverse. Learn more
  • Some terminology in Microsoft Dataverse has been updated. For example, entity is now table and field is now column. Learn more

This article will be updated soon to reflect the latest terminology.

When a guide is created by using the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides PC app, content and information in that guide are stored by using the Dynamics 365 Guides entities from Microsoft Dataverse that are listed in the table later in this topic.

Important

All entities that are installed as part of the Dynamics 365 Guides solution support the standard extensibility/programming model in Dynamics 365. You can access entity information by using either the Web application programming interface (API) or the Microsoft Dataverse Organization Service.

Dynamics 365 Guides entities and fields can be used with the Web API, and in Power Apps or a flow using Power Automate. However, we anticipate that these entities will evolve quickly in the near future. If you have an urgent need to do a business-critical integration, contact the Dynamics 365 Guides team directly for guidance, through your Microsoft Account team.

Additionally, be careful when you programmatically create, update, or delete records for Dynamics 365 Guides entities. Some entities depend on other entities to provide user experiences and functionalities in the PC and HoloLens apps. Programmatic manipulation of these entities might prevent you from using the functionalities in the intended and supported way.
