Business Central Integration with Rest API – Deep Drive – COVID-19 India Tracker (Part 1)
Dear Friend, I am back with some useful stuff for you. Hope this may help you to deep drive with API Integration. While thinking to work on large data for Power BI analysis report, I got the details about “https://www.covid19india.org/” website from my colleague Mr. Anil Pandey . Where we decided to get the JSON data in Power BI to create same dashboard.
While checking website I got the details of various API details by calling those we can get variety of data on COVID-19 India cases. My previous posts viewed by lots of readers and this inspired me to develop this in Business Central for learning purpose and share with you all. I can’t say, have done this as a big solution. But try to give a overall feel of creating an APP. I know there are lots of Dynamics Lancers who can do these very quickly & better way. My purpose only to help those who still thinking that integration is a such complex task.
I haven’t used all available API at https://www.covid19india.org/. Only more thing I need to mentioned here, data are not realtime. It is a day before.
To work with this integration, I have included development like:
Role Centre Page including Navigation menus, Action bar, Headline, Chart & CardPart or ListPart page.
Translations (Something unusual using Hindi)
In this part, I will only talk about the look and feel of development & functional aspect of the story. Technical details I will share in subsequent part to this blog series. Hope my initiative will inspire you before I release the next part for technical details. Please give a try, its quite easy and interesting to work on such integration development.
