Giving Jet Reports permission to access Azure Cloud data

Technical Overview

Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 can utilize Microsoft's Azure -  a secure cloud service that integrates operating systems with applications.  By adding Jet Reports to your organization's NAV environment, you get the all the abilities of NAV/365 and all the reporting power of Jet products.

When a new application is added to an organization's NAV environment, it is typically necessary for the Administrator of the Microsoft Entra ID Tenant to approve the application before it can be used.  This process of approving an application for the entire organization is referred to as "Administrator Consent".

By clicking the link to allow access, the admin of the Microsoft Entra ID Tenant can provide the necessary administrator consent  and allow the Azure system to use Jet products to work with your data - while maintaining all the security you have already set up within your system.

Technical Resources

There are a great many online technical resources for learning more about Azure, Active Directory, and Administrator Consent.  Here are a few such resources if you are interested in learning more.
