Dynamics 365 online authenticate with user credentials
On the Magnetism blog, John Towgood stated that Integrating with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Online is pretty clear-cut because it exposes Web API endpoints.
The most difficult part, however, is authenticating. The reason: Dynamics 365 Online uses OAuth 2.0 as an authentication method and a valid access bearer token issued by Microsoft Azure Active Directory is needed and used in every HTTP requests to the Web API.
