Recently I was asked, is it possible to import data from a local file? Similar to the way of uploading attachments in Business Central, first select the file and then import the data inside into Business Central.
I wrote in the past some articles about how it’s important to use Azure Storage for storing files in a Dynamics 365 Business Central project (avoid using blobs and media as much as possible) and I’ve talked about the differences between Azure Blob Storage and Azure File Share, also providing a solution for mapping an Azure File Share as a local drive for data exchange with Dynamics 365 Business Central (link here).
When migrating a Business Central solution to the Cloud environment, issues often arise related to file management since the client’s local and server’s file systems are unavailable for the application whose target is set to Cloud. One possible way to solve the issues is to use the functionality of a standard SharePoint module, which would provide an alternative file system and replace the usage of a file management code unit.
I think to have answered this question more than 20 times (live and on socials) but regularly it pops out, so I think that a quick post can help.
Dynamics 365 Business Central (SaaS and on-premises versions) has its own operational limits, limits imposed at platform level to ensure the availability and quality of Business Central services.
Almost every Dynamics NAV / 365 Business Central solution uses multi-language functionality, allowing to display UI in different languages. Using C/AL – we have to fill in the CaptionML property with a desired translation. Using AL – we have to use the XLIFF file for the same purpose. Both achieve the same goal, but both are very different technologies
Today I will show you how you can perform multiple operation on any file in Business central by accessing of Azure blob storage.
I going to work on some image file, where I will store those files into blob storage and after reading that file move that file into another folder and delete from the source folder.
