Register An App In Azure Active Directory With Dynamics CRM Trial Environment

Introduction

In Dynamics 365 CRM or Power Platform, an Application Id is required (i.e., oAuth) to authenticate. Here we are going to register a new App in Azure Active Directory so that from Dynamics CRM we can use this app id in the applications. The most common scenario is to have this app id to connect from server-side code or connect through xrm toolbox with this App ID or through Post Man tool to connect to Dynamics CRM to test Dynamics 365 Web API Requests.
