There are lots of ways to work with Azure Logic. This will be my first of many hopefully to show you how you can use Azure Logic with AX.
Have a read of this post from the Azure Logic team first. It explains how you can create a callable endpoint in Azure Logic.
In my post I will show you how you can use AX to call an Azure Logic endpoint.
First start by writing a job that sends a post message to request bin. Request bin is a good site which you can use to send a message to it and it displays the results in a readable way.
Navigate to request bin and copy the URL into the job. Then run the job to see the result.
static void _jsonJob(Args _args)
str _requestUrl = @'http://requestb.in/1a07xyj1';
response = webApi.makePostRequest(_requestUrl, _postData, _header, _contentType);
rawResponse = response.parmData();
Below is what you should see in request bin.
Now, lets do it via Azure Logic.
1) In Azure Logic create a new app
3) Create a HTTP request. This will give you a URL which you can call.
Use http://jsonschema.net/ to copy your message and get a schema. This schema can be pasted into the HTTP request.
I create an action to send an custom response. I added parts of my request and some additional elements.
Run the job in AX and have a look at the response.
This is just a quick test but think of similar examples. You can possibly create a framework in AX where you send a message after an invoice is posted. That message could be json, string, xml or filestream. Then you can have Azure Logic send an SMS, email, integrate with SalesForce/CRM or all other connectors.
