Microsot Beta Examen – Es gibt viel zu tun…

Da gibt es einiges zu tun für mich. Klar ist dabei, dass das Vorbereiten auf die Prüfung im Vordergrund steht. So zwinge ich mich selbst am Ball zu bleiben…

This is an intro post to the Error Message Mgt. codeunit and related objects. NAV has never brilliant when it comes to error handling, for a couple of reasons. The error messages themselves sometimes leave a lot to be desired The whac-a-mole nature of fixing multiple errors by finding one at a time and attempting […]

über (Slightly) More Elegant Error Handling in Business Central — James Pearson

This is a quick post for giving a response to a question that comes out in our latest Microsoft’s webcast about creating cloud-based workflows for Dynamics 365 Business Central. In this training I’ve talked a lot about the „When an HTTP request is received“ action in Power Automate (and on Azure Logic Apps too) and […]

When moving from the old NAV world to the new one it is not a question of CAL vs. AL. In my opinion the biggest challenge is to break out from our traditional way of solving problems.

The first picture shows a very familiar scenario. I think most NAV developers including myself will be fine with this solution. But the point is we have a whole set of new tools available which we should get familiar with. And these tools can also be a great help even in On Prem. Power Automate, Logic Apps, Azure functions…

So this is my entry point in the new world. Gather as much information as possible about Azure to be afterwards in a position to make valid decisions. Not everything needs or should be done in NAV BC if we already have tools available which can do the task out of the box.

 

Business Central Virtual Event

Vor allem hat mich dieser Beitrag interessiert. Ich finde die Integration mittlerweile als sehr gelungen.

Vor allem die Roadmap ist für mich von Interesse. Virtual Entities machen es in der Zukunft möglich, NAV-Daten ins CDS virtuell bereit zu stellen. Es sollen sogar CRUD Operations möglich sein. Das macht für mich vor allem bei der Entwicklung von Hilfstools in PowerApps viel Sinn.

Hier noch ein paar Infos zu aktuellen Stand der Virtual Entities sowie zum Gegenstück in AL:
