What if I made the mistake of storing some “worthwhile” data in a Business Central Docker container over the course of several months? Perhaps it was test data or data imports that I didn’t think I would ever need–but then 3 months later I realized that the accumulated data was valuable.
Using the ControlAddins and power of jQuery it is possible to add container widgets to roles centers to extend their functionality, using the page parts in which to publish the widgets.
Surely, this is interesting for demos as other products do the same thing, giving the idea that Business Central Online is completely customizable using internet services.
This is not my first blog post about how to use SQL Server on the host, but it is definitely the one describing the easiest way to do it. With the latest version of BcContainerHelper you can (with one Run-BcContainer command) create a container which uses SQL Server on the host as database engine for the container.
On October 27th 2017, I posted the first announcement which introduced NAV on Docker. For approx. 3 years we published Docker images first to Docker Hub and later to Microsoft Container Registry for both Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. Many 1000 images was pushed to the container registries until we during the summer of 2020 changed strategy to use artifacts together with the generic image.
