Create a new partition [AX 7]

This is a deprecated feature but still works for simple testing. I used it mainly to test importing of configurations in a new clean environment.

To create a new partition, you must put the form name at the end of the URL.

Create a new one and save it.

To login to the partition, you must do a similar URL parameter by adding the partition name.

Note, that the partition have their own data through out. Companies and security must be set up individually.

Munib,

I have information from Microsoft, claming the Partitions to be deprecated. So you should probably check up on that, before using it for any solutions.

Agree with Palle, it is not accessible from main menu because it should not be used and left for MS internal use.

I forgot but I had my fun last week. Been testing the set up of a new company from a clean environment. I hope Microsoft leave it there as a non PROD feature.

Yes, deprecated (as mentioned on twitter).

But it will remain as a framework feature I'd guess because the unit test framework uses data partitions as isolation level.

AX - How to use Map and MapEnumerator

Similar to Set class, Map class allows you to associate one value (the key) with another value. Both the key and value can be any valid X++ type, including objects. The types of the key and the value are specified in the declaration of the map. The way in which maps are implemented means that access to the values is very fast.
Below is a sample code that sets and retrieves values from a map.
static void checkItemNameAliasDuplicate(Args _args) { inventTable inventTable; Map map; MapEnumerator mapEnumerator; NameAlias nameAlias; int counter = 0; ; map = new Map(Types::String, Types::Integer); //store into map while select inventTable { nameAlias = inventTable.NameAlias; if (!map.exists(nameAlias)) { map.insert(nameAlias, 1); } else { map.insert(nameAlias, map.lookup(nameAlias) + 1); } } //retrieve from…

Azure DevOps Release Pipeline–Walkthrough

It is a great start to 2019. Joris from Microsoft has welcomed the year with the release of the Azure DevOps Release Pipeline task on the marketplace. Official blog:https://community.dynamics.com/365/financeandoperations/b/newdynamicsax/archive/2019/01/18/first-azure-devops-task-released Addition blog:https://daxmusings.codecrib.com/2019/01/azure-devops-release-pipeline.html I thought I would do a walkthrough for those that haven’t had a chance to play with it yet.
New release pipeline In Azure DevOps, click on the New release pipeline.
You will get an option to select from a template. Just select “Empty Job”. In the first stage, make sure the Agent job is using “Hosted VS 2017”.

In the Agent job click on the + icon to add a task. Select the LCS Asset Upload task. If you don’t see, then you have not installed it. Just select the “Dynamics 365 Unified Operations Tools” link at the bottom. Otherwise, install from here https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Dyn365FinOps.dynamics36…

Detailed guide on creating Business Events with Azure Service Bus

I have been working with the new Business Events feature released in FinOps and you should read the docs site first.
This blog post focuses primarily on setting up Azure Service Bus endpoint. Setting up the Azure services can be tricky if you are not familiar with Azure Key Vault and application registrations.
I have sequenced the post so that you don't have to jump around. There are four key elements to this: Create the app registrationCreate the service busCreate the key vault secretConfigure FinOps Create an App Registration In the Azure Portal, navigate to the Azure Active Directory menu. Click on App registrations (there is the old one and the preview menu - they are the same but the UI is a bit different). I will show the original App registrations way.


Create a new Web app/API registration and give it a name. It doesn’t really matter in our case what the sign-on url is.




Take note of the Application ID as you will need it later for setting up the Business Event.
