Dynamics 365 Interview Questions

Prospective Dynamics 365 Interview question and answers for CRM

Q1.   Does Web API called using javascript would work from outlook in offline mode?
A1. Yes it will work but in Dynamics 365 only and not in 2016 sp1 and before. The context.getClientUrl function automatically redirects requests to the local version of the service when Dynamics 365 for Outlook is offline.

Q2. Can we create a lookup field using Web API?
A2. Dynamics 365 allows creating it.

Q3. What is Data Export Service and what is its scope.
A3. The ability to replicate Dynamics 365 data to an external SQL database provides a lot of flexibility for generating reports. Data Export is an add-on service made available as a Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) solution that adds the ability to replicate Dynamics 365 (online) data to a Microsoft Azure SQL Database store in a customer-owned Microsoft Azure subscription. The supported target destinations are Microsoft Azure SQL Database and Microsoft Azure SQL Server on Microsoft Azure virtual machines. Data Export intelligently synchronizes the entire Dynamics 365 schema and data initially and thereafter synchronizes on a continuous basis as changes occur (delta changes) in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online) system. It can only transfer data from CRM online to Azure SQL or Azure VM.

Q4. What is the use of Xrm.Mobile.offline?
A4. Xrm.Mobile.offline namespace is used to create, retrieve, update and delete records in Dynamics 365 for phones and Dynamics 365 for tablets while working in the offline mode. These new client APIs will work only if you are in the offline mode and for entities that are enabled for mobile offline synchronization.

Q5. What are editable grids and can it be used as subgrids?
Q6. What are editable grid events?
A6. Editable Grid events are:         
  • ·         OnRecordSelect
  • ·         OnChange
  • ·         OnSave

Q7. What is Server-to-server authentication?
A7. Use server-to-server (S2S) authentication to securely and seamlessly communicate with Microsoft Dynamics 365 (online & on-premises) with your web applications and services. S2S authentication means you don’t need to use a paid Dynamics 365 user license when you connect to Dynamics 365 tenants. There is no license fee for the special application user account you will use with S2S authentication. With S2S authentication a special Dynamics 365 unlicensed application user account is created and includes information about your application registered with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Rather than user credentials, the application is authenticated based on an application user identified by an Azure AD Object ID value which is stored in the Dynamics 365 user record. The Dynamics 365 application user is associated with a security role which controls the kinds of data and operations the application is allowed to perform.

Q8. What is a task flow and how it can be used?

A8. You can also design a type of business process flow called a task flow in Dynamics 365 for phones or Dynamics 365 for tablets based on common tasks your users perform. For example, if they need to regularly perform a series of follow-up steps after client meetings, create a task flow. When users tap the new task in their mobile app, it will lead them through from start to finish so they don't forget an important step.
