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.
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

Now that you have the first task added. Fill in the details. You will have to add a
new connection to LCS. I need to investigate the tags to give it a better name and description.

When you click on the new LCS connection, you will get this dialog. Most of it is defaulted for you. Enter the username and password.
Client ID (Application ID) can be created in Azure Portal.
You need permissions to “Dynamics Lifecycle services”. Make sure it is a
Native application type. Hopefully it looks like the screenshot below.
Don’t forget to click on “Grant permissions”.
Next, we go back to the main Pipeline screen and select our artifact.
Click on the Add an artifact tile. Select build and fill in the details.
What we want to do in this scenario is release the latest build.

To set up a trigger to occur on a build. Click on the lightning icon. You can enter
filters to ensure only your release branch gets uploaded to LCS.
You can run it manually to test it out. Click on the Create a release.
A successful run should look like this.
It is pretty satisfying to see the result on LCS.

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…

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.
