Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector 2.4 XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule app in XML either from the Anypoint Studio XML editor or from a text editor, you can get access to the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector in your app by adding reference statements to your XML Mule flow and in the Apache Maven pom.xml file.

You can avoid the manual process described in this topic by using Studio. When you install Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector in Anypoint Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Connector namespace and schema location, and adds a dependency to the 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-dynamics-365
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/microsoft-dynamics-365/current/mule-microsoft-dynamics-365.xsd

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

<mule xmlns:$2="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/$2"
	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/$2
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/$2/current/mule-$2.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The Maven pom.xml 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.xml file to enable access to the connector. The Mule runtime engine translates the RELEASE dependency keyword to the current version.

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.mulesoft.connectors</groupId>
  <artifactId>mule-microsoft-dynamics365-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, access the connector in Anypoint Exchange and click Dependency Snippets.
