Win/Lose Opportunity Through Odata API

Posted on by 5


I use business central cloud and I've exposed a few opportunity pages through the web service page so I can access the data through api and it works for the most part. My issue is when I want to close the opportunity, there's not really a way to do it. I've tried manually changing the status code but it says it's read only. I tried changing the values that I could, like "OptionWon" and "Close_Opportunity_Code" (these are from the Close Opportunity page) and those updated the percent correctly and it sets the entry to won but it still doesn't set the status of the opportunity to won.

I've seen some posts on here talking about LoseOpportunity and WinOpportunity entities but those look like they're On Prem only.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Yeah, that makes sense. I'll have to give it a shot.

    I think a purpose built unbound action is needed with a codeunit. Pass it the opportunity number and result. It goes on to  update the opportunity. Probably by repurposing the code which does this in the first place. I think a lot of it lives on a page.
