Send to Azure Service Bus in #MSDyn365FO

Sending a message to Azure Service Bus is really simple in FinOps.

Below is the job I wrote to send a message to the service bus. It takes a connection string and a queue name for connecting. The message string and key value pair list can be supplied to the properties.

    static str connectionString = 'Endpoint=sb://;SharedAccessKeyName=RootManageSharedAccessKey;SharedAccessKey=h5KwXSEFIHxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
    static str queueName = 'navaxqueue';

    /// <summary>
    /// Runs the class with the specified arguments.
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name = "_args">The specified arguments.</param>
    public static void main(Args _args)
        if (connectionString && queueName)
            Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.QueueClient queueClient = Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.QueueClient::CreateFromConnectionString(connectionString, queueName);
            Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.BrokeredMessage brokeredMessage = new Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.BrokeredMessage("My Message");
            var properties = brokeredMessage.Properties;

            properties.Add("MyKey1", "MyValue1");
            properties.Add("MyKey2", "MyValue2");

Using Service Bus Explorer you can see the result.


At the moment Microsoft is working on event based triggers. One of the possible solutions they presented was writing to the service bus. Looking forward to it.

I took inspiration from one of the standard classes I noticed in in 8PU15. It subscribes to the insert/delete of a user record to send the user detail to a service bus. The big bonus is that service bus assembles are included on the machine. I won’t dive any deeper into this class in this blog post.

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.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

Approve Workflow via email using template placeholders #Dyn365FO

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations has placeholders which can be inserted into the instructions. Normally you would want this to show up in the email that is sent. One of the most useful ones is the URL link to the exact record that you are approving. In the workflow configurations use the placeholder and build up your message. Towards the end it has workflow specific ones. The URL token is %Workflow.Link to web% . For the technical people the token is replaced in this class WorkflowDocumentField. This is what I inserted into my email template. <BODY> subject: %subject% <BR> message: %message% <BR> company: %company% <BR> for: %for% <BR> </BODY> Should look like this. The final result looks like this. If you debug these are the place holders that are put together.
