Microsoft Dynamics 365

Learn how to integrate your Microsoft Dynamics instance with Strivacity, allowing Strivacity to add, update and maintain customer information and use it as a source of entitlement.

Integrating Strivacity with Microsoft Dynamics provides the following benefits:

  • Use Microsoft Dynamics customer information as a source of entitlement during customer registration, login, or any step within the customer account lifecycle
  • Create new customer records, and synchronize/update those customer records with the latest customer account information (from Strivacity)
  • If required, migrate customer information from Microsoft Dynamics to Strivacity upon account registration

They're two steps to setting up Strivacity with Microsoft Dynamics 365:

1) Setup Microsoft Power Platform to register Strivacity as an Application and define API permissions for the application, and enable public client access

2) Setup a pre-registration hook within Strivacity

1) Setup Microsoft Power Platform to register Strivacity as an Application

1) From within the Azure Active Directory Dashboard, click on App registrations, and click + New registration

2) Define a name for your new application

3) Choose Accounts in any organizational directory (Any Azure AD directory - Multitenant)

4) Click the Register button. Your newly created application should be registered as shown in the screenshot below.


Make a record of the ClientID so that you can use it at a later stage of the integration.

5) Next, click on Certificates and Secrets

6) Click on New client secret and copy it to a safe location for use later in this integration. Note you will not be able to copy the secret again later

7) Next, click on API permissions, and then Add a permission

8) Select Dynamics CRM as shown below:

9) Next, search for “user_impersonation”, and then click add permissions as shown below:

10) Now click on Manifest, and set allowPublicClient to true, as shown highlighted below:

This completes the initial configuration within Microsoft Dynamics 365 for use with Strivacity.

2) Setup a pre-registration hook within Strivacity

1) Log into the Strivacity Admin Console using an Admin role, or a role that has delegated access to create a Lifecycle Event Hook.

Using the pre-registration hook code below, do the following:


This will search Microsoft Dynamics 365 for a contact matching the primary email address

Now add any additional logic as you see fit!

var dynamics = require('dynamics-web-api');
var AuthenticationContext = require('adal-node').AuthenticationContext;

// dynamics config

// get an adal context for use in auth
var adalContext = new AuthenticationContext(DYNAMICS_AUTHORITY_URL);
