Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Connector 3.0 - XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

Although you can manually code a Mule app in XML, it is more efficient to use Anypoint Studio. When you install the connector in Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the connector’s namespace and schema location. It also adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

If you manually code a Mule runtime engine (Mule) app in XML either from the Anypoint Studio XML editor or from a text editor, you can get access to the connector in your app by adding reference statements to both your XML Mule flow and the Apache Maven pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

Paste the following code inside the mule tag of the header of your configuration XML:

http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/microsoft-365-for-operations
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/microsoft-365-for-operations/current/mule-microsoft-365-for-operations.xsd

This example shows how the namespace statements are placed in the XML:

<mule xmlns:dynamics365ForOperations="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamics365ForOperations"
	xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
	xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
	xmlns:file="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file"
	xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
	xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file/current/mule-file.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http/current/mule-http.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core/current/mule-ee.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamics365ForOperations
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/dynamics365ForOperations/current/mule-dynamics365ForOperations.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The pom.xml Apache Maven file generated by Anypoint Studio contains dependencies for a Mule app. When you code a Mule app manually, include this XML snippet in your POM file to enable access to this connector:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.mulesoft.connectors</groupId>
  <artifactId>mule-microsoft-dynamics365-for-operations-connector</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

Replace x.x.x with the version that corresponds to the connector you are using.

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information:

  1. Go to Anypoint Exchange.

  2. In Exchange, click Login and supply your Anypoint Platform username and password.

  3. In Exchange, search for dynamics finance.

  4. Select the connector.

  5. Click Dependency Snippets near the upper right of the screen.
