Opening OData in Excel

Posted on by 541

So in D365 for Finance and Operations we have entities exposed as OData.  I would like to be able to open the OData in Excel.  I go to the Data tab on the ribbon, choose OData and give it the path to my OData Service (<axurl>\data\<entity>).

I have 2 options for security - use current or define.  Whichever I choose the result is always a 401 unauthorized (I would have hoped I'd get some way to login at least).  I tried on Excel 2013 and 2016.

Any tips how I can do this?

Thanks

    I have the same issue, and the solution is to use in Excel:

    Data- New query - From other sources - From OData,

    put in url your application link: usnconeboxax1aos.cloud.onebox.dynamics.com/.../

    then use credentials (with Organisation account) from Dynamics 365 F&O,

    Best

    Dynamics 365 (online) isn't Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Are you sure it can be use with D365FO?

    The right approach in D365FO (AFAIK) is using the Excel add-in developed by Microsoft. It handles authentication, among other things.

    Hi Norbert,

    Maybe your question is no longer valid.

    I had the same issue and the functional way is use option:

      - Ribbon Data > Get & Transform> New Query> From Other Sources> From OData Feed

      - Ribbon Data > Get & Transform> New Query> From Other Sources> From Dynamics 365 (online)

    The result is the same - list of entities for use
