  • Red and Bundle: Two years of extension building. Part 2

    Let’s just say I like construction. I’m never happier than when I am building something, be it something physical or software. With creation comes learning, from creation actually I think. Come to think of it, learning mostly comes from messing stuff up and then fixing it better...

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Using Deployment slots for your Dynamics 365 Business Central Azure Functions

    In my session at Ignite Tour Milan in January I’ve talked (with a real demo too) about how to use Deployment slots when you need to deploy a web application in the cloud and you have the need to separate the production environment from a “testing” environment or a “preview” environment (for scenarios where you want that only some users can use the preview version of your application). I’ve received the following…

  • Vjeko.com: Images fixed on vjeko.com

    You might have noticed that I had some problems with pictures on this blog. Some posts simply didn’t show any of them, and I’ve got quite some reports that they aren’t working. Unfortunately, I’ve been so busy recently that I really didn’t have time to look into it. A few days ago, a regular visitor of this blog that goes by the name of Bjarki took time to figure out what’s going on. He posted a comment about his…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central and the new Microsoft Application "proxy" app

    If someone of you has installed or upgraded a Dynamics 365 Business Central database instances with the new 15.3 version, I think that you could have noted that a new Microsoft extension is appeared on the Extensions Management page: What is this Microsoft Application app? This is a nice trick that Microsoft has done to solve a noisy problem that you could have if you modify the Base Application for the…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central: please always check AL warnings!

    This is a quick post that want to describe a curious thing discovered 3 days ago. A partner contacted me on a social network (yes, I answer also on my socials but please don’t abuse on questions here, I have an email address…) and said me that he had problems on deploying an update of a per-tenant extension (big extension) to a SaaS tenant (the extension was previously working). The error that occours when publishing…

  • Roberto Stefanetti's NAV Blog: Microsoft’s solution for COVID-19 is a free Teams subscription for six months

    Hi Guys, yes, I live in a “Red Zone”… it is certainly not a good situation, it takes a lot of patience, with rigorous respect for the rules, we will slowly come out of this unpleasant calamity. Since remote work (smart working) is now routine, I point out some Microsoft links to be able to use Microsoft teams for free; the package is offered free of charge for the emergency COVID-19 . There are different distributions…

  • Van Vugt's dynamiXs: Test Tool Extension

    When working on getting the standard tests running on our solution the standard Test Tool was not making our live as easy as it could. Wanting to rerun only successful or failing tests, this was near to impossible. Manually deselecting individual tests turning of the Run field, was, euphemistically said, not the most meaningful thing to do. So, already a couple of years ago we decided to add some actions to the test…
