Sometime last year, I posted about using Business Events with Data Export. The code was shared on Github too.

Now, I have updated to introduce a Data Import Business event. This is helpful for a number of scenarios (specially for integration).
  • Long running jobs - you don’t want to constantly call Odata services to get the status of your execution job
  • Trigger data execution alerts for integration - you could trigger alerts based on failures.
The argument here could be that you could use alert rules to fire a business event. Alerts rules are flexible but I find that I have to use Odata calls to get more information.

To use the Import Business Event, just make sure the Project category is Integration



The business event will fire when an execution history is created.


The business event looks like this. 


Any feedback is welcomed.
