Add an App for Dynamics 365 Using Express Configuration Option


Use the express configuration option to create a Dynamics 365 app. The express configuration prompts you to create the Azure app that is needed for the Dynamics 365 app. Then the Metallic software automatically syncs the Azure app with Azure, authorizes the Azure app, and creates the Dynamics 365 app in the Metallic Hub.

  2. In the upper-left area of the page, click the menu button, and then click Dynamics 365.

    The Dynamics 365 tab appears.
