Having implementations with tens of companies in a single database puts some challenges on the part of master data management. Often most of the companies share the same setup data (post codes, unit of measures, ...) or master data (same customer base for a group of companies). Using RapidStart packages is good for initializing a company, but when data is changing, updates needs to be transferred to all other companies.

Having some native features available (instead of external/internal tooling + avoiding additional licenses / costs) would certainly ease the maintenance of data from WITHIN BC.

If not possible on short-term, some guidelines / best-practices are appreciated as well. (using external Excel sheets together with Soap UI and webservices, using RapidStarts sheets in combination with PowerShell, using Workflows in combination with data definition framework, using MS Flow ...)

Try and have a look at Integro.pl solution for handling Master Data, its quite a nice way of using the possible webservices.

Hi Frederic,

I completely agree with your question.
I face the same challenge and that's why i tried to find a solution using Power Automate (MS Flow).

Have a read on my blog entry about it
