Outbound HTTP calls blocked in Business Central Sandbox – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

Recently I received a number of questions from people who were using the first self-monetization example code I created about a year ago. They received an error message when installing the app: Callback functions are not allowed. This error happened because there is code in the install codeunit to do an outgoing HTTP call to a webservice. In the same period,… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

Isolated Storage in your Business Central App – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

A question I get quite often during my AL development workshops or coaching sessions for partners is this: can other apps access data that is stored in my app? And the short answer is: yes, they can. There is no way to avoid that. Let’s not go into the discussion why partners want to prevent others from peeking into data stored in their tables and or to see… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

time to kiss C/SIDE goodbye – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

Last week I attended Directions North America 2018 in San Diego, CA. It was the best Directions NA I’ve ever attended. I’m not going to go over all kinds of “what’s new in the next version” because others already did, and probably better than I can. Like Waldo did on his blog (he has a good memory indeed). Some people think there was no big news at… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

Object Licensing with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

My last blog post was about the possibility to create tenant customizations for Dynamics 365 Business Central. That raised some questions about licensing. Which I perfectly understand considering where we come from. With Dynamics NAV on-prem we have to license every single object. A base set of objects like Pages and Reports come for free with Page Designer and… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

Dynamics NAV 2018 Image Library – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

A new version of Dynamics NAV requires a new version of the Dynamics NAV Image Library. Well, here it is! It is available for download at Mibuso. This time I put a little more effort in the tool. Instead of just adding the images of Dynamics NAV 2018, I’ve also added some more features. First of all, the images of Dynamics NAV 2018 are included (of course…)….

The different AL Extensions versions for Visual Studio Code – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

A common question asked these days is why there are different versions of the AL Extensions for Visual Studio Code. With this post I try to explain what the differences are and what version you should choose when developing Extensions v2. In fact there is just one AL Extensions, shipped in different versions. At the moment of writing these versions are… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

How to connect Visual Studio Code with NAV 2018 – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

Last couple of days, I got a number of questions from people that all came down to the same issue: how to set the correct settings in the launch.json so Visual Studio Code can connect to NAV 2018. In most cases I saw the same mistake being made. A logical mistake, but also one that leaves you probably wondering why it works that way. Let’s assume you have… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...

How to get access to C/AL code in NAV Developer Preview September Update – Kauffmann @ Dynamics 365 Business Central

The NAV Developer Preview is meant to create extensions and not to do any customizations in the base application. However, you may want to have at least access to the base code to see what has been changed, which functions are external, etc. If you created an Azure VM right away after the announcement of the September Update, you might be missing C/SIDE on the… Continue Reading ajk’s Article on their...
