Note: Because the System Application is part of Business Central 2019 release wave 2 it isnt yet publicly available. To get access youll need to join the ReadyToGo program so that you can use Microsoft Collaborate and our insider builds.
Start by pulling the latest Docker image (current walkthrough based on build 15.0.34197). To do that, run the following command.
docker pull bcprivate.azurecr.io/bcsandbox-master:base-ltsc2019
$credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentList "admin", (ConvertTo-SecureString -String "P@ssword1" -AsPlainText -Force)$imageName = "bcprivate.azurecr.io/bcsandbox-master:base-ltsc2019"$licensePath = "C:\..\l.flf" #put actual path to your license$containerName = "BC"New-BCContainer -accept_eula ` -updateHosts ` -containerName $containerName ` -auth NavUserPassword -Credential $credential ` -imageName $imageName ` -licenseFile $licensePath ` -doNotExportObjectsToText ` -includeAL ` -useCleanDatabase ` -memoryLimit 16g `
UnPublish-NavContainerApp -containerName $containerName ` -appName "System Application" ` -unInstall ` -doNotSaveData
Note: We need the latest version of the AL extension for VS Code. The PowerShell output contains the link to the .vsix file, so we can download it from the container.
Note:The project folder should be in a location that is shared with the container. For example, a folder in C:\ProgramData\NavContainerHelper will work.
Publish-NavContainerApp -containerName $containerName ` -appFile "C:\ProgramData\NavContainerHelper\AL\DemoSolution\Microsoft_System Application_126.96.36.199.app" ` -skipVerification ` -sync ` -syncMode ForceSync ` -install
The System Application is a work in progress, and new modules will be added in the future. If you want to peek at the latest, you can always go to the GitHub repository https://github.com/Microsoft/alappextensions. While youre there, if you see something you think weve missed, you can submit a pull request and we might add it. Additionally, if you think weve left out a module, you can submit an idea on https://aka.ms/bcideas.
