Configuring credentials in Cobalt

Setting up application client credentials

Cobalt lets you use pre-configured applications to play around. You can do so by selecting Use our credentials. However, if you wish to use your own application, select Use your own credentials. Provide the aquired Client Id and Client secret and save it.

Once the above setup is completed, you can create orchestrations of your use-cases using Microsoft Dynamics CRM actions and triggers. Following are the set of Microsoft Dynamics CRM actions and triggers supported by Cobalt.
