The Dual Write implementation – Part 3 – Entity map explained

In continuation of our journey to have D365 FinOps data in CDS, Following has been covered.


The Dual-write has been setup and the dual-write solution has already applied 


I have chosen Asset management asset types (msdyn_customerassetcategories) entity map from the list to put lights on all infrastructural features (aspects) of Dual-write.

Entity map naming convention 


Entity mappings: 
  1. Click on entity map to view all entity fields mappings
  2. More field mappings can be added by clicking on Add mapping
  3. These can be OTB fields of entities or custom added ones
  4. Two actions can be taken on each entity map field; Reset and Delete
Activity log provides details when was the last run and what was the outcome of that last run, if there was an error it shows activity id which can be shared to MS dual-write team to investigate further if you cannot find any resolution.
