In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Power Automate), how do I… Know What Actions Are Available with Power Automate

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralThis post is part of the In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Power Automate), how do I… series and of the wider In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, how do I… series which I am posting as I familiarise myself with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

There are several types of action which you can take using Power Automate with Business Central.

An action in Power Automate is any ongoing operation or process to be fulfilled after a specific trigger. There are multiple actions available in the Business Central connector (I have removed the older V2 actions as they have been replaced with V3 ones which generally have improved functionality):

Actions Description

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralThis post is part of the In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Power Automate), how do I… series and of the wider In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, how do I… series which I am posting as I familiarise myself with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

There are three types of flow available for Power Apps with Business Central:

Flow Type Description
Automated This flow type is run automatically by an event. In Business Central, an event could be when a record or document is created, modified of deleted. So, for example, a new sales invoice can trigger a flow for an approval request, which can have different events set depending on the approver’s reply. A negative response sends a notification and email to the approval requester. A positive reply simultaneously updates an Excel spreadsheet located in a SharePoint folder and sends an update to a Teams chat. Automated flows can be started by both internal and external events in Business Central.
Approval Approval flows are also automated flows in Power Automate, but they’re designed specifically for requesting approval when changes are made to records and data. You can use approval flows in Power Automate as an alternative to the approval workflows feature that’s part of Business Central.
Scheduled This type of flow is also automatically run but it runs periodically at a scheduled date and time.
Instant This flow type is run on-demand, requiring the user to run it manually from a button or action in another app or device, in this case, the Business Central client. Instant flows work similarly to batch shortcuts, performing multiple lengthy steps with a few button presses and are launched from specific pages or tables. For example, a flow can add a button to the action menu on the Vendors page to block payments to a vendor and, at the same time, send customisable emails to the vendor’s contact and your company’s purchasers as well as update the contact in Outlook.

More details on flows are available from Microsoft here

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralThis post is part of the In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Power Automate), how do I… series and of the wider In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, how do I… series which I am posting as I familiarise myself with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

I’ve recently been involved with some discussions about approval workflows in Business Central, which were somewhat more complex than the standard workflow allowed.

Fortunately, there is a tool from Microsoft which can be used to extend the approval capabilities of Business Central: Power Automate.

However, Power Automate is much more than just a tool which allows an extension of workflows in Business Central. It is a service which helps you create automated workflows (or flows) between apps and services. Power Automate flows require little or no coding knowledge, making them easier and quicker to create than a normal code extension.

They can be associated with a wide range of events and responses, such as:

  1. Record changes
  2. External files updates
  3. Posted documents
  4. Different Microsoft and third-party services, like Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Dataverse, Teams, SharePoint, Power Apps, and more.

I will, eventually, be covering the creation of workflow processes or other flows in this series, but it’ll probably take me a while to get there as I go through some of the basics of Power Automate, so make sure to keep an eye on this series.

New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2: Edit Variable Values During Debugging

Power AutomateThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2.

The 9th of the new functionality in the Desktop Flows section is edit variable values during debugging.

Debugging will become more powerful and flexible as users will be able to change at-will the value of a variable during debugging to test specific scenarios.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
Public Preview: –
General Availability: Mar 2024

Feature Details

During debugging and while the flow is paused, or when the user runs a flow step-by-step, the variable viewer window will no longer be read-only as is the case today. Instead, the respective fields will be editable, so that the user can change the current values, in order to continue debugging the flow with the new values.

My Opinion

I’ve not done much with desktop flows, but this sounds like a good enhancement which could make scenarios better.

New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2: Connect Your Own Virtual Network with Hosted Machine Group

Power AutomateThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2.

The 8th of the new functionality in the Desktop Flows section is connect your own virtual network with hosted machine group.

Users can run desktop flows using a hosted machine group connected to their own virtual network (VNet) in order to execute RPA jobs that require access to on-premises networks.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
Public Preview: Dec 2023
General Availability: Mar 2024

Feature Details

Users can now seamlessly integrate a hosted machine group (HMG) with their own VNet. This integration enables users to run desktop flows and execute RPA jobs that require access to on-premises networks. By leveraging their own VNet, users can ensure secure and reliable connectivity between the hosted machines and the on-premises networks.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
Public Preview: –
General Availability: Dec 2023

Feature Details

The protocol handler URL of Power Automate for desktop will support text/number/boolean input data types. Hence, users will no longer need to manually provide those values through the Power Automate console while triggering local attended desktop flows.

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Inventory and Warehouse Management), how do I… Prevent Negative Stock Levels

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralThis post is part of the In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Inventory and Warehouse Management), how do I… series and of the wider In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, how do I… series which I am posting as I familiarise myself with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

The default for processing inventory in Business Central is that stock levels can go negative. For some organisations, this is required for operational reasons where they might want to pick and ship stock before it has been booked into the system, although it is physically in the warehouse; however, I am a little surprised that this is the default.

Changing Business Central so that stock cannot go negative is very easy to do; there is a single toggle, Prevent Negative Inventory, which needs to be set to the on position. This setting is available in the Inventory Setup page:

Inventory Setup page with the Prevent Negative Inventory toggle ringed in red

New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2: Use SAP-dedicated Actions in Desktop Flows

Power AutomateThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Power Automate 2023 Wave 2.

The 6th of the new functionality in the Desktop Flows section is use SAP-dedicated actions in desktop flows.

SAP UI elements tend to have dynamic properties, making UI automation difficult to achieve. So, the introduction of SAP-dedicated actions aims to create a smoother maker experience and result in a more accurate attended/unattended runtime.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
Public Preview: –
General Availability: Nov 2023

Feature Details

There are two ways to integrate with SAP: using the SAP UI or using the RFC APIs. Microsoft have recently made improvements to make working with the RFC APIs easier from cloud flows. Now, Power Automate for desktop is introducing dedicated SAP UI actions, simplifying the authoring process for makers and helping create more robust SAP desktop automations.
