This is fully documented since a while here Important changes (deprecations) coming in Power Apps and Power Automate - Power Platform | Microsoft Docs

Impacted customers are those who still use username/password (the old legacy Dynamics 365 integration) and has not enabled OAuth authentication still.

What is provided below is how to resolve the issue depending on different scenarios.  

NOTE: It is required that you take action NOW and have your integration ready before 1st April 2022 deadline.  

 

 

Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS 

 

Move to OAuth2.0 authentication.

User must change the authentication type to connect to Dataverse. 

  1. Open Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connection Setup page

  2. In the action pane choose Connection > Use Certificate Authentication

  3. When prompted to sign in via https://login.microsoftonline.com, sign in as the Administrator of your Dataverse organization

  4. Wait for the task to be accomplished (it should take about 30/40 seconds).

In the end, you should get an information message that you have successfully upgraded your connection to Dataverse to a service-to-service (S2S) connection with a certificate, and that you got a new integration user.

NOTE: SaaS customers will benefit of further communications from product group about how to proceed considering their environment and integration types.
