Microsoft Dataflow to update CRM records

Posted on by 60

Using Microsoft Dataflow I have created a flow to integrate data from a SQL table that creates records in CRM.  I am needing to have the records in CRM be updated and not new records created.  Can I have records updated using Microsoft Dataflow instead of creating a new record?

    Hi, 

    First you need to create an alternate key in the CRM.

    Then, map your source key field to the newly created alternate key.

    Please check this excellent blog, you will all the details:
