Creating an HTTP method

Authors list

This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to create a new HTTP method as a part of the Lasernet Connector configuration within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (D365 CE).

The HTTP method is a link between D365 CE and either Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (D365 FO) or a logic app. This link is needed to activate a report generation within D365 FO or a logic app.


1. Sign into your Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement system.

2. On the Sales menu, click the drop-down menu to show the navigation menu flyout, and then under the Settings flyout, click HTTP Methods in the Lasernet list.


The Active Lasernet HTTP Methods page is displayed. Follow the steps listed below to create a new HTTP method.

3. On the Active Lasernet HTTP Methods page, click the NEW button.

4. Fill in all the fields, as required and then click the Save icon.

The table below outlines details about fields and possible values to be entered on the General section of the page for creating a new Lasernet HTTP Method record:

A descriptive name of the HTTP Method record you create.

HTTP method (required)

It is POST meaning that data is sent.

Available values: Yes and No. Yes enables presenting data in the response message body or as a query string (Request URL).No disables presenting data in the response message body or as a query string (Request URL).
