  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Visual Studio Online preview: coding in the browser seems promising.

    Today at Ignite 2019 Microsoft has launched the public preview for Visual Studio Online , a managed cloud-based development environment based on Visual Studio Code that works in the browser. The tool is actually not finished (it’s a preview version) but I think it’s extremely promising and it opens the doors to many interesting scenarios for developers (imagine to be able to edit and review code directly from a tablet…

  • Freddy's Blog: Using SQL Server on the host

    I have had quite a few partners asking me how to connect a NAV / Business Central container to a SQL Server placed on the host. This is the way I started a blog post back in april here: https://freddysblog.com/2019/04/12/placing-the-database-on-the-host/  and elegantly, I avoided to answer the question and instead described how to place the database on the host and use the SQL engine in the container. Of course this…

  • Aphorisms about Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Taking the modern client for a spin

    Operating the Modern client from the keyboard When the Modern Client was released with Dynamics 365 Business Central Release Wave 2, Microsoft promised to have fixed a lot of the problems that previously held end-user customers from using the Web-Client: Missing shortcuts Missing Quick-Entry Missing Departments menu No Personalization Too many levels in the menus Copy/paste failed periodically So…

  • Mark Brummel: Mapping Codeunit 10201 “Transfer Custom Fields” to Events (NA Only)

    By Steve Krisjanovs Below is a list of all COD10201 external functions and where I believe their event equivalents live in. There were three functions in the list below that had me stumped so a second set of eyes would be helpful.

  • Mark Brummel: AppSource; Prefix, Suffix & Intellisense

    This article was triggered by a discussion on Yammer yesterday that I felt went a bit sideways. Business Central is a first class cloud citizen and it beats born in the cloud solutions easily but fact remains that it’s based on Navision, an ERP solution with a 30-some year legacy. Part of that legacy is a requirement for unique names in the objects, also in the cloud. Microsoft is working hard to remove…

  • Mark Brummel: Tip #64 | Show License Information in Business Central

    With the retirement of C/Side we have a challenge we did not have before regarding the license. We used to be able to see the license information from C/Side, upload the license and quickly create a new page that displays permissions. With Business Central this is no longer possible and we now need PowerShell to upload a license. On my GitHub you can find a repo you can clone to display the license…
