Scribe Insight - Getting Started with Dynamics 365 CE
Scribe Insight is one of the most widely used tools for data migration and integration projects involving Dynamics 365 CE.
In this article, we will see how we can use the tool to create our first data integration project involving Dynamics 366 CE using Scribe Insight.
Register, Download,and Setup the trial to begin with. Make sure to install the Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM Adapter.
Scribe Workbench is the component\tool that we would be working with for writing our first data map.
Open the Scribe Workbench tool, first, we will configure the source
Select Microsoft Dynamics 365 and CRM as the adapter for the source.

Select the account entity, and for operation select Delete operation and click on Add Delete Step.
In operation tab, we can specify whether we want to run the operation in bulk and also the conditions basis on which we want to perform the delete operation.
Flow controls allow us to specify the flow for the step.

Lastly, we select the account id from the source and account id field our destination and click on Lookup Link to map this field on basis of which we are going to perform the delete operation.
Finally, click on the Run icon to run the job, we’d get the job summary window with all the details as shown below.
