Resolve Budget dimension through X++ [D365FO]

This one is to resolve budget dimensions. Be careful here to use the right class. Budget plan and Budget register use a different contract class. public static void getBudgetLedgerDimension() { //use BudgetPlanningContract for Budget plan //use BudgetAccountContract for Budget register BudgetAccountContract budgetAccountContract = new BudgetAccountContract(); budgetAccountContract.parmValues(new List(Types::Class)); budgetAccountContract.parmAccountStructure('Manufacturing P&L'); DimensionAttributeValueContract attributeValueContract; //Main account attributeValueContract = DimensionAttributeValueContract::construct('MainAccount', '110180'); budgetAccountContract.parmValues().addEnd(attributeValueContract); //Dimension 1 - repeat this for all other dimensions attributeValueContract = DimensionAttributeValueContract::construct('Departmen

Resolve default dimension through X++ [D365FO]

This one is resolving the Default dimension public static void getDefaultDimension() { DimensionNameValueListContract dimensionNameValueListContract = new DimensionNameValueListContract(); dimensionNameValueListContract.parmValues(new List(Types::Class)); DimensionAttributeValueContract dimensionAttributeValueContract; //Dimension 1 - repeat this for all other dimensions dimensionAttributeValueContract = DimensionAttributeValueContract::construct('Department', '022'); dimensionNameValueListContract.parmValues().addEnd(dimensionAttributeValueContract); //resolve the dimension DimensionNameValueListServiceProvider dimensionNameValueListServiceProvider = DimensionNameValueListServiceProvider::newForDimensionNameValueListContract(dimensionNameValueListContract); DimensionStorageResult dimensionStorageResult = dimensionNameValueListServiceProvider.resolve(); if (dime

Resolve ledger dimension through X++ [D365FO]

A bit of code to show how to resolve ledger dimensions. There are various codes out there but I thought I would write it in an easy way to understand. It is hard code but I did that for illustration purposes. public static void getLedgerDimension() { DimensionAttribute dimensionAttribute; DimensionAttributeValue dimensionAttributeValue; DimensionSetSegmentName dimensionSet; DimensionStorage dimStorage; LedgerAccountContract ledgerAccountContract = new LedgerAccountContract(); ledgerAccountContract.parmValues(new List(Types::Class)); ledgerAccountContract.parmAccountStructure('Manufacturing B/S'); DimensionAttributeValueContract dimensionAttributeValueContract; //Main account ledgerAccountContract.parmMainAccount('110180'); //Dimension 1 - repeat this for all other dimensions dimensionAttributeValueContract = DimensionAttributeValueContra

Integration - Create a lead in CRM via a web service in 10 minutes

CRM (Microsoft Dynamics Online – not AX CRM) has an SDK which you could use to integrate to. It can been overwhelming sometimes. So, I decided to use Flow to do the communication for me (HTTP Request > Dynamics). Took me 10 minutes from start to finish. I didn’t have to learn the CRM SDK or figure out how to do authentication etc. I wanted to send a simple json message like this. {      "Email": "",      "FirstName": "Munib",      "LastName": "Ahmed",      "Topic": "Health" } Go to Flow and create a new HTTP request. Click on “Use sample payload to generate schema” and enter the above json message. It will generate a schema as per below screenshot. Take note of the HTTP POST URL that has been generated. We will use that later to send the message to. In the Actions select Dynamics > “Create a new record”. Select Leads as the entity name. Map the fields and you are done. Now we just
