Dynamics AX 7 Development I – Create a model

With the recent release of AX7 CTP8 public preview there are a lot of things to learn. I thought I would do some basic series of tutorials to explain a few concepts and how to get around for developers.

In this first one I will explain how to create a model.

Click on Dynamics AX > Model Management > Create model

Follow the wizard by entering a name and a publisher

This is very important if you want to create extensions or if you want to customise existing functionality by over-layering (which we try to avoid as much as we can).

After you finished you can create a new project in that model.

In the Application Explorer there are two views

  • Model View – Shows the AOT divided into its models. Each model has its own subset of the AOT (elements that belong in the model)
  • Classic View – Shows a single AOT classic view we are used to

You will notice in the Packages folder that the model folder was created under the application suite.
