  • TharangaC - Dynamics NAV Blog: Object types is case sensitive in TenantWebServiceCollection

    Last week while I was working on an integration project, I wanted to call a Business Central function from Azure Logic Apps. I had few options with APIs but I went ahead with creating a CodeUnit with a function and expose it as a web service. Rather than exposing the CodeUnit by manually inserting an...

  • Van Vugt's dynamiXs: Test Fixture Initializer

    Overtime I have been advocating the use of the standard Business Central tests in various posts, webinars, conference presentations, and my book . IMHO this has been, and still, is an undervalued collection of over 22,000 automated tests that cover all functional areas. It's a no brainer to let them run on your solution as we did on ours . In case your solution intertwines with standard code chances are big that these…

  • Waldo's Blog : DevOps Build Agents for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

    Not too long ago, I did a webinar for ALOps .  The idea of these webinars is simple: how can you get started with DevOps for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central .  And I’m not going to lie: I will focus on doing that with ALOps .  But that’s not the only focus of these videos – I will touch lots of stuff that has nothing to do with ALOps, but more like strategies, simple “how to’s” and so on – which should be interesting…

  • Hougaard.com – Applied Hacking: What’s faster than temporary tables?

    I’m currently working on a new app (for AppSource) and I need fast accessible information throughout a user session that I can look up without having a performance impact on the user experience. Great, we have the single instance codeunit, and temporary tables. That’s an old and proven solution. But Read the full text.

  • Roberto Stefanetti's NAV Blog: “How-to” use the restored Business Central SaaS database on On-premise environment – Part II

    “How-to” use the restored Business Central SaaS database on On-premise environment – Part II Some have written to me about the possibility of using the Business Central SaaS database restored on SQL Server in a Business Central On-premise environment. In my old post I actually illustrated how to back up the SaaS db so you can save it on Azure Services and download it for restoration on the local SQL Server. In fact,…

  • Vjeko.com: Searching the unsearchable, episode 2

    True, there was no episode 1, not on this blog. But if Star Wars can start with episode 4, I don’t see why can’t I start with episode 2. Especially when Waldo has already written episode 1 . So yes – apparently, up until a few minutes ago – with the new theme my blog has been sporting for a while, it was impossible to search my blog. Somehow, for some reason, the theme I applied didn’t expose the search button in…

  • Kauffmann @ Dynamics NAV: Codeunit API’s in Business Central

    This blog post was on my list way too long… But now I found some time to sit down and write it. Disclaimer What I’m going to show here is officially not supported (yet). It is an undocumented feature that already exists for a couple of years. I believe it can even be used in Dynamics NAV 2018 and maybe earlier versions as well. In fact, Microsoft uses this feature themselves in the Power Automate Flow connector…

  • Waldo's Blog : Searching the unsearchable

    You probably know about the twitter hashtag “ bcalhelp ” .. A way for you to ask help on twitter about anything AL for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Well – yesterday, it made me smile … there was someone that was trying to find something on Vjeko’s blog .  Pretty clever to use the bcalhelp for it :-), because he immediately got response.  Here is the twitter thread (if you can call a question/answer…

  • Kauffmann @ Dynamics NAV: Using tables instead of table extensions

    Recently James Crowter wrote an excellent article about table extensions and how they affect performance. In short, table extensions are great for flexibility and ease of development, but performance decreases when the number of table extensions is adding up. Especially when table extensions are used for hot tables. With hot tables I mean tables that are used often, like Item, Customer, Sales Line, Item Ledger Entry…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central 2020 Wave 1: FAQ about updating apps for v16

    I’m receiving a lot of questions from partners about what they will have to do for their existing apps in order to be ready for Dynamics 365 Business Central version 16. I’ve summarized here the Q&A: Does Dynamics 365 Business Central introduces breaking changes to my existing apps? It depends. Dynamics 365 Business Central version 16 has no major breaking changes like version 15 but you should test on a sandbox…

    These are all the “2 billion” tables in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2020 Wave (Version 16). I keep needing to look up the tables numbers. So here they are, for my own convenience.
