Is possible to do CRUD using Web API in D365FO's local VM? I'd like to do CRUD through D365 data entities, is it possible?
Personal point of view: You can't.
Programming with Web API requires authenticating the identity protocol, then programming with the HTTP request sent and ODATA, and passing a unique URL.
I do most of my OData endpoint testing on a local VM of mine. So it is definitely possible. As Blue Wang mentioned - you don't have a public URL. So you need to call from the VM itself. Thus if it is for testing purposes, it is not a problem at all. Further than that I don't know.
OData endpoint is intended only for local VM? If yes, how am I able to work this thing in cloud?
By default all your entities which are public are deployed on odata endpoint .You can access those in cloud version using following URL
[Your organization's root URL]/data/
More details you can get in standard documentation
I am not sure what you mean. If you are asking if OData endpoints are only for local VM's: Definitely no... I merely mentioned that it is possible to test OData endpoints on a local VM.
For a VM with a public URL you can call from anywhere. For instance from your PC. A local VM (without public URL) you have to call from the VM itself.
I think your questions will be answered if you just get going. I find Postman the easiest way: Install postman on your VM and try to make a simple call. There are quite a few setup steps. I can assist you with that.
So, how can this OData endpoints be accessible in cloud? Through Web API?
Odata protocol is based on REST. Did you looked at the below link ?
Thanks Sukrut, I read on the documents and I am thinking of how can a third-party application can do CRUD?
Thanks to all of you, now I having a clear view of OData endpoints and Web API.
You cannot use WM's IP address directly because D365FO OneBox environments (I guess this is what you mean with local WM) uses HTTPS and request address has to be the same as the one in the certificate.
But you can add a line to windows's hosts.txt file and redirect D365's "usnconeboxax1aos.cloud.onebox.dynamics.com" address to the IP of your WM.
Then from that computer, you can call any D365FO web service of that One Box WM.
Sample "hosts.txt" file with a WM address of 22.214.171.124
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 126.96.36.199 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 188.8.131.52 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
