In 3 days, it’s game-time again. THE best DEV conference for Business Central will take place in Antwerp: NAVTechDays – and I’m honoured to be a part of it again. But this year – it’s quite different, because I signed up for a challenge. This year, I’ll be joining Vjeko on stage for a very …

System Information in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Small tip – huge advantage – and one I forgot about until AJ reminded me of it yesterday: the “system information” page in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Centeral. An – as far as I know – undocumented feature, but one worth mentioning! When on Business Central, Microsoft will be deciding when a tenant will be …

Application-wide system events (previously known as “Codeunit 1 events”)

You must have heard. Codeunit 1 is a goner! And if you have not heard it – you must have read about it. Because it has been on Microsoft Docks for a while, and also there was a blog that Microsoft spent on it. Well, before I managed to find these description, I was working …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is released @ Directions NA

Your first reaction is probably – duh, I know! Well – I’m late, that’s true. At Directions North America, Microsoft announced the availability of the new version of Business Central – and I didn’t spend one single post on it. Until now. Reason is simple – I was quite busy at the conference, and I …

AL Code Analysis Rules (Diagnostic Descriptors) – Updated Again

I have been blogging a few times about the Diagnostic Descriptors we get when enabling code analysis. Well – yet again, we have new ones. But I’m not going to keep updating these rulesets, as Microsoft is now doing that on docs. So let me give you one more overview, and the resources to the …

Business Central W1 Docker image with data

You probably know this. I just write this post because I didn’t up until today. I’m using Docker quite regularly (well, if you find “pulling an image twice a day” is regular) .. and I have been using mostly these two repositories according my needs (for more info, look here): “bcinsider.azurecr.io/bcsandbox-master” for the very latest …

Export C/AL objects as AL from a database on a docker container on a remote host

That’s a mouthful, isn’t it :-)? As you might have figured in quite some sessions, threads and posts, I’m quite fond running docker images on a remote Hyper-V on my laptop. From the moment it was described by Arend Jan, I’m using it. In my opinion, it’s a much better way to run, because Windows …

Inconsistent language behaviour in the windows client

The strangest thing happened to us recently – one that really blew my mind. I’m going to spare you the long road of trial & error we went through to come up with the answer – or at least an explanation of what cause the behaviour. The behaviour Because “a picture tells more than a …

List all NAV Docker Image Tags on Docker Hub

Some time ago, I created this script because I wanted to know all the available tags on dockerhub for the “microsoft/dynamics-nav” repository on Docker. Why? I don’t know anymore :-). But it was clear that the “tags” section on DockerHub only showed us a very small part of the available tags. Yesterday, we were wondering …
