What is personal data? | European Commission

Answer

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual. Different pieces of information, which collected together can lead to the identification of a particular person, also constitute personal data.

Personal data that has been de-identified, encrypted or pseudonymised but can be used to re-identify a person remains personal data and falls within the scope of the GDPR.

Personal data that has been rendered anonymous in such a way that the individual is not or no longer identifiable is no longer considered personal data. For data to be truly anonymised, the anonymisation must be irreversible.

The GDPR protects personal data regardless of the technology used for processing that data – it’s technology neutral and applies to both automated and manual processing, provided the data is organised in accordance with pre-defined criteria (for example alphabetical order). It also doesn’t matter how the data is stored

How to use Power Automate to extract data from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations via Data management package REST API

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations there are two APIs strategies that support file-based integration scenarios:

  1. Data management framework’s package API
  2. Recurring integrations API

Both APIs support data import and data export scenarios, and both use batches. Batch data APIs are considered asynchronous integration patterns because when these APIs are called, data is imported or exported in batch mode. However, calls to these APIs are synchronous. For example, a call to the ExportToPackage API schedules a job to import only a specific data package. The scheduling job is quickly returned (synchronously), and the work is done later in a batch (asynchronously). Therefore, batch data APIs are categorized as asynchronous.

In this article, we will review how to leverage Power Automate and the Data Management package REST API to extract data from Dynamics 365 Finance. We will use the example of extracting “Customer groups” in Dynamics 365 Finance. However, any
