Update apps installed from Appsource in Business Central Online with Powershell

This post will show you how you can update apps installed from the Marketplace in Business Central Cloud with Powershell.

In the example below, powershell will be used which will invoke the APIs needed to update the APPs installed from the marketplace. For convenience I added a couple of functions to the BCContainerhelper to make it more convenient, in this way we can take advantage of the token management already present in the module, placed in GitHub.

How do I: Create a timeline in a report dataset in AL?

A question I got recently was, how can I visualize or create a dataset that can show/fetch information on a timeline? For example, I have a time-sheet and want to visualize the hours employees worked at certain projects, per day, week, month, year, and so on.

In this example I will create an order intake report. For the simple reason that for this report you can use the standard demo data in Business Central, and for time-sheets you first need to go threw a setup and then create the demo data.

Since the advent of Microsoft Dynamics 365 in November 2016, NAV Development Team worked hard to move from the old Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 SDK (7.0) to the shining latest one from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 (8.2).

Moving from the old SDK to the new one, required not only platform changes but also a deep code review. In this blog, I am trying to explain what is changed within latest versions and cumulative updates and also which tables are allowed to be integrated as entities within NAV CRM Integration feature.
