Dataverse Integration


This plugin directly connects WordPress with Dataverse (formerly Common Data Service), Dynamics 365 / CRM, creating powerful portal solutions for your business.

Dataverse (formerly Common Data Service) lets you securely store and manage data that’s used by business applications. Data from your Dynamics 365 applications is also stored within the Dataverse allowing you to quickly build apps which leverage your Dynamics 365 data and extend your apps using PowerApps.

The plugin extends the Power platform to WordPress and provides full access to the Dataverse data. Written from ground-up, the plugin uses Web API to communicate with Dataverse.


  • 100% Web API-based – future-proof investment.
  • Secure server-to-server authentication. No more usernames or passwords.
  • Create custom forms in WordPress and map them to Dataverse tables and columns for create or update operations. Write data from the forms directly to Dataverse / CDS / Dynamics 365.
  • Collect leads, contact requests, support queries and much more without any coding.
  • Query Dataverse / Dynamics 365 records using FetchXML language. Give your customers direct access to product catalogs, event lists, knowledge base articles.
  • Create custom layouts for Dataverse / Dynamics 365 data using powerful and flexible Twig template engine. Display data directly from Dataverse / Dynamics 365 without any coding.
  • Bind WordPress posts and pages to Dataverse / Dynamics 365 records. Build a customized record view in WordPress like product information sheets.
  • Extensible through WordPress actions and filters.


This plugin requires at PHP 7.4 or greater. cURL extension is recommended.


Plugin documentation is available at


For this plugin to work, access to a working instance of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement or Dataverse for Apps is required. Without that the plugin is absolutely useless. Please, do not raise issues related to that fact. If you are curious to try, you can always sign up for a free trial of Dynamics 365.

I’ve been using the AlexaCRM product to integrate WordPress and CRM (and now Dataverse) it seems like forever. George and team are great with support when I’ve run into any issues and make a top-notch product. There is so much power in the WordPress platform…and getting to connect your website to read/write data to/from Dataverse is the icing on the cake. We’ve been able to create so many applications and use cases with this plugin for clients.

Needed to integrate with Dynamics to meet a client request. The hosting environment was a challenge and support was excellent is assisting us in troubleshooting issues we were seeing.

If you need to extend your Power Apps (including Dynamics 365 CE) to an external facing website and you don’t have time to learn Power Apps portals or the licensing doesn’t quite fit your budget, then the Dataverse Integration is an amazing alternative to enhance your existing WordPress sites. You can easily create views and forms pointing to Dataverse tables and easily allow external stakeholders to create and update data. I would recommend being comfortable using FetchXML (use the XrmToolBox add-on) and get ramped up on Twig (almost identical to Liquid). I had some challenges with some of the popular page-editor plugins (like WPBakery) but if you add your code using an raw HTML element with the [icds_twig][/icds_twig] tags you should be good to go.
