Does the CDS integration user need a BC license?

Posted on by 133

Hi all,

I have integrated Business Central with CDS (and Dynamics Sales) and used an integration user account for this during our 'trial' period of BC. We are now using paid licenses, but my question is whether this integration user will now also need a paid license in order to keep the integration/synchronization with CDS running.

Does anyone know the answer to this question? Please let me know!

Thanks in advance!

    Hi ,

    please find below the link related to your Question and all details related to the CDS connection.

    if you are using Business Central on-premises and are not using Azure Active Directory account to connect to Common Data Service, you must also specify a user name and password of a user account for the integration. This account is referred to as the "integration user" account. If you are using an Azure Active Directory account the integration user account is not required or displayed. The integration user will be set up automatically and does not require a license.
