OAuth for Partner Communication Type Web Service
The Basic Auth will be removed from Business Central SaaS by Microsoft in release 2021 wave 1 (April 2021). The web service authentication OAuth2 is recommended and will be added as partner communication type
Web Service, in partner setup.
AL Interfaces for Communication
The message communication of COSMO Data Integration Framework allows only extensibility by events, currently. The AL interfaces introduced with Business Central v16.x enable to create much better extensibility to send and receive partner message, and manage repository handling for messages.
Repository Type SharePoint
The former C/AL version of COSMO Data Integration Framework was able to communicate with a Microsoft SharePoint, easily. It was possible to write and read data from SharePoint lists like any other table. This features will be redeveloped using the technology OData API of SharePoint, instead of SOAP API.
Compression of Communication Type Web Service
In SaaS environments, the messages are mostly send by partner communication type
Web Service to another database. The XML message used as communication contains full textual content and can become large in data size. Compressing the messages will make the data payload much smaller and therefore send the messages faster.
AL Interfaces for Repositories
The repositories can only be extended by events, currently. The AL interfaces introduced with Business Central v16.x enable to create much better extensibility for custom repository types. Depending on the concept, the line actions might be also moved to interface technology.
REST Communication Messages
As COSMO Data Integration Framework can create and read JSON repositories, the app should be able to directly communicate with REST APIs. The request and response for OData must be managed in a total new message handling, to allow concatenating of mapping execution.
