This week the MVP Summit 2016 has taken place in Redmond/Bellevue. Although I have been awarded the fourth time as MVP, this was my second MVP summit. MVP’s from all over the world on all award categories are collaborating and attending technical settings. This year we had a record number of 18 (eighteen!) “AX MVP’s”. It was nice meeting all of them.
Within a few weeks we can expect the fall-release of Microsoft Dynamics AX. However, this version will get the product name Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. This version will include some localizations for countries which weren’t released within the latest version before. You can read about which countries/languages are supported on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations Roadmap page. The detailed countries are listed on the Globalization & Translation section. A few countries are still on the roadmap to be fully supported in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. Support for Russia and India are not included within the upcoming fall release. You have to depend on partners for Countries/languages which are not and will not be supported by Microsoft. (meer…)
If you want to know the size of a single company in Microsoft Dynamics AX or which tables consumes the largest space in the database, we were used to run the Size of company accounts report. Initially you cannot find this report in the menu structure of the new cloud version of Microsoft Dynamics AX. This post will tell you how you can run this report and how to find or run reports using AX URL parameters.
When you want to work with the new Microsoft Dynamics AX, you have some options to deploy the environment. You can choose between deploying an environment on Azure or download a local machine. The purpose of the local machine is mainly a development box, but can also be used for demonstrations (with some limitations). The local environment always contains a predefined demonstration database. What if you want to start with an empty AX database or test with configurations that will be used by the customer? Continue reading and you will know how to start with another database.
In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX people were used to use the right-click menu in case it was needed to rename the primary key of a record. This post will inform you about renaming records in the current version of Microsoft Dynamics AX (aka AX7). (meer…)
Recently I started working with a new local VM containing Microsoft Dynamics AX with Update 1. When setting up some users and roles I found out that the demonstration data contains some rubbish in the security roles. This post will inform you about the issue and how to cleanup orphaned security roles. (meer…)
When Microsoft designed the Data Import Export Framework in AX2012 it provided some entities out of the box. In many scenarios you will be missing an entity. You can create your own entities in the development environment from scratch or you can use the wizard which will create the basic objects required for your new entity. Sometimes you might run into errors and you should start troubleshooting. This post will provide a walkthrough how to create an entity. When finished this entity has an error due to conversion of an enumeration field. A solution for this problem is also provided at the end of this blog.
As promised in my previous blog post, I would write two blog posts with a summary from my presentation on the AXUG European Congress. In this post I will provide some tips related to troubleshooting Data Import Export Framework issues.
If you google pictures with employees you see lots of smiling, handshaking, high-fiving, applauding and motivated people. It looks like they are enjoying what they are doing. Is this representing the reality of everyday life? Probably not. (meer…)
