Deploy a Web Api App for AX 2012 to Azure–part 1

Continuation from previous post. In this post I will show how  publish your solution to Azure.

I assume you have followed the instruction from the GitHub wiki to download and configure.

https://github.com/ffilardi/AxaptaAPI/wiki

Now that you have done that. Lets deploy.

Create a new Api App. You might have to search for it if its not available on the menu.

Give it a name and select a Resource Group. Obviously pick a data centre location that is close to your AOS. If I am not sure, I like to use this site to find the closest with the lowest latency.

Now you have an empty Api App. Grab the Publish file by clicking the “Get publish profiles”. This is not necessary but if you have other developers who don’t have access but you want them to publish. This one of the ways.

In Visual Studio right click on your project and click Publish.

Follow the wizard. You can sign in and select the Azure resource to deploy it to. Otherwise, use the publish file to import and publish (doesn’t require you to sign in).

Once its deployed. Just navigate to the swagger URL. Should look like this

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 fro

AX - How to use Set and SetEnumerator

The Set class is used for the storage and retrieval of data from a collection in which the values of the elements contained are unique and serve as the key values according to which the data is automatically ordered. You can create a set of primitive data types or complex data types such as a Class, Record or Container. Below is sample of a set of records. static void _Set(Args _args) {     CustTable       custTable;     Set             set = new Set(Types::Record);     SetEnumerator   setEnumerator;     ;     while select custTable     {         if (custTable && !set.in(custTable))         {             set.add(custTable);         }     }     if (!set.empty())     {         setEnumerator = set.getEnumerator();         setEnumerator.reset();         while (setEnumerator.moveNext())         {             custTable = setEnumerator.current();             info(strfmt("Customer: %1",custTable.AccountNum));         }     } } Common mistake when creating a set of recIds

Import document handling (attachment) files #MSDyn365FO

Out of the box you have limited data entities for migrating attachments. If you search what is already in the AOT, you will see a few various examples. I suggest you look at the LedgerJournalAttachmentsEntity as it is the simplest and cleans to copy from. I wont go into detail but I will give a quick run down of what it looks like. Use the DocuRefEntity as your main datasource. It does most of the work for you. Set your table you want to import for as the child datasource Add the Key You will need to add the postLoad method. There is minor code to update the virtual field FileContents. Below is an export I did for the general journal attachments. The import zip structure should be the same way. It will create the usual artifacts such as the excel, manifest and package header xml files. You will see a Resources folder under that. If you drill down to the resources you will see the attachments. This is an export and it used the document GUID for uniqueness. The other thing is the extensi
