  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise Wave 2: changing license

    I was sure this was an obvious topic until today, but after receiving so many desperate questions from partners that are unable to change the license for an on-premise Dynamics 365 Business Central Wave 2 database for development purposes, I’ve decided to spent few minutes for sharing this. When you install Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise Wave 2 (or version 15) release, you’ll see that the setup permits you…

  • Kauffmann @ Dynamics NAV: New AL file type icon

    The latest release of Business Central not only comes with a new icon for the application, the AL language extension for VS Code also got a new icon: And not only that, but the AL language also includes a file icon theme, as you can see here: When you apply this file icon theme, you will get a small logo with AL in front of all .al files. I’m not going to discuss the design of the icon…

  • Mark Brummel: Tip #62 | “Where-Used” in Visual Studio Code

    The “Where-Used” in Visual Studio Code is nice, but not always productive. Today I wanted to see where a field was used and came up with an alternative I wanted to share. ObsoleteState If you mark a field ObsoleteState::Pending the compile will throw warnings everywhere the field is used. This allows you to quickly use the error window to jump through the code and check whatever you want to check. When…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central: checking Users Plans in Wave 2 release

    Checking which plan is assigned to a specific user (Essential, Premium, Team Member) is become a quite different thing with the Wave 2 release (version 15). Users plans are now managed in the System Application via the Azure AD Plan module . The Plan and User Plan tables are now marked as internal, so you must use the methods provided in this module to query them. How can you check if a user is an Essential, Premium…

  • Waldo's Blog : New logo for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

    Small message that I just needed to share :-). As said – I’m prepping my sessions for Directions, which basically means: I’m spending all my free time in “Business Central” these days. No printing, hardly any social contacts … . And while publishing to SaaS, I noticed this when I refreshed my page: That’s right! A new logo, people! (I should say “Icon” actually, but you know what I mean). Let’s have a…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central APIs, Powershell, CSV and a bit of fancy notifications

    In one of my last development workshops for Microsoft Italy, when talking about Dynamics 365 Business Central APIs, I’ve done a small demo on how to retrieve data from APIs directly from a Powershell script and save those data in a CSV file. Due to a lack of time, I’ve not talked too much about that script but (attendees will remember that) it ended in the following way: This is a classical Windows 10 Toast notification…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central Wave 2: customizing the Base Application

    In a previous post I described how you can start building extensions for the upcoming Dynamics 365 Business Central Wave 2 release on top of the Microsoft’s System Application . Today I want to show you how you can directly customize the Microsoft’s Base Application (alias, the standard Microsoft codebase). This is a top request I receive every day on all the partners I met, but before starting this post, I want to…

  • Axians Infoma NAV Blog: Asynchronous programming in D365 Business Central 2019 wave 2: Page Background Tasks

    In a lot of other programming languages, the concepts of asynchronous calls and background tasks are well established and supported 1 . The idea is to have the ability to kick of something in the background without having to wait for the result and thereby blocking the user. Instead the user can just...

  • Mark Brummel: What if…

    Sometimes I can be a bit emotional when it comes to changes in the software product I work with on a daily bases. An example of that was my previous blog that I took offline in order to do some editing making it less about emotion and more about facts. The emotion is probably justified for a few reasons of which most the fact that Navision, NAV, Business Central (I stopped caring about the name) provides a living…
