With the release of the July 2020 version of Power BI desktop we can create tools that can interreact with the Power BI Desktop model directly using an external tool. With this interaction you can make changes to the model in a programmatic way. There are so opportunities things this will open up. You can think of a tool that would allow you to edit the model like Tabular Editor or query like DAX Studio (which both already work as external tools).
Remember this post? Probably not. Nearly a year ago at Directions US, I showed some “how did I do stuff” during a number of sessions. And it ended with a lot of feedback, which came down to: “can I have it”? So, that’s where I wrote a post “I have work to do” ;-).
The “DevOps”-part of the work is done: ALOps is available and well used :-).
But the second promise – the “Dependency Analysis”, I only completed in November 2019 – and totally forgot to blog about it. In my defense – I did explain it at NAVTechDays, and that video IS online. You can find it here: NAV TechDays 2019 – Development Methodologies for the future (This is a link to the point in the video that explains the “dependency analysis” part).
When working on getting the standard tests running on our solution the standard Test Tool was not making our live as easy as it could. Wanting to rerun only successful or failing tests, this was near to impossible. Manually deselecting individual tests turning of the Run field, was, euphemistically said, not the most meaningful thing to do.
So, having checked a number of tools, I decided to make one myself. I have made an extension for Dynamics 365 Business Central, and not only that, I have made it Public Domain, so that everybody can help developing it.
You can find the beta on my public GitHub account:
Now that Microsoft decided not to include C/Side with Business Central knowing how to develop in AL language and how to quickly transfer your solution from C/AL to AL is crucial. In this article, we will talk about how to use Microsoft’s TXT2AL tool to convert your C/Side solution to AL language.
The complete\detailed planning in Dynamics 365 Business Central (and in Dynamics NAV sure..) is done through the MPS\MRP planning which can be launched from the planning worksheet (you can find some posts on the planning parameters in this blog); However, it is also possible to use other tools that can be used for job planning or for lean production planning that do not require multi-level planning. The advantage of these tools is that they provide tree views and can be comfortable for top-level MPS planning.
A free Service Tier Administration Tool. All functionalities are working on LOCAL and REMOTE machines when you have the administration rights to that machine. Installing, Uninstalling, Start, Stop, Restart and dynamic change of settings like Portsharing, Account, start mode and settings in the CustomSettings.config of the Service Tier.
