With the deprecation announcement of the Dynamics 365 connector, a common question is guidelines for interacting with Dynamics 365 Apps using Common Data Service Connectors. Why I say connectors is because there are two Common Data Service connectors. This post on our PFE team blog describes how to find these different connectors and differences in triggers and actions.
At high level, the Common Data Service (Current Environment) connector should be the first choice, and if that doesn’t serve the requirement then use the Common Data Service connector as next option.
So why should the Current Environment connection be the first choice compared to other one? Here I talk about a series of advantages of the "Current Environment" connector:
Writing Filter or Expand Query formulas can be eased out using the FetchXML Builder plugin of the XrmToolBox community tool. The View drop down has the option to generate Power Automate parameters based on current FetchXML you create:
The "When a record is selected trigger" trigger is not available with Current Environment connector, it's available with Common Data Service connector. This is the only trigger requirement one can think of using Common Data Service connector.
The Ideas page on Power Automate Community website is a good tool to find and vote on existing ideas or submit your own suggestions/ideas.
Hope this helps!
