Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – some more info

My last blogpost was merely an announcement of Microsoft’s announcement about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. We are a 24 hours later now, so let’s share some more information about this new release of NAV-In-The-Cloud. I assembled this myself, from blogs, documents, slides, talks and mails – so there is a disclaimer for sure 🙂 …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Microsoft just released the new name for “Microsoft Dynamics 365 ‘Tenerife’”, where “Tenerife” was just a codename for the next version of “NAV-In-The-Cloud”. And as you might have figured from the title, that name is “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central” You might know I’m totally not into “marketing fluff” or “branding” for that matter – …

Dynamics NAV and GDPR Compliance

Disclaimer: this blog is mostly a repeat of what was in Microsoft’s blog .. I just try to spread the word 😉 Sometimes I get the question: “Is Microsoft Dynamics NAV GDPR compliant”. I’m not a GDPR specialist, and don’t want to act like it. But … This week, Microsoft blogged about GDPR. And it’s …

CRS.RemoteNAVDockerHostHelper – Updated!

I’m not going to blog about each version of this module, but for this update, I felt obligated to share a few words. Primarily, because all has changed :-). Not one function is the same. I renamed all of the functions to a more convenient name – as they were quite long (not to say: …

CRS.RemoteNAVDockerHostHelper – my new PowerShell module

Note – The links and text have been updated to the latest version of the CRS.RemoteNAVDockerHostHelper module.  All screenshots are untouched though, so might refer to old naming/parameters/… !

Enable Code Analysis for AL

It’s the week of “undocumented features”, apparently. Today: code analysis. Apparently, the al-language extension comes with a built-in analysis for your al-code. Thing is: it’s disabled by default. Just go to settings (File/Preferences/Settings) and enabled it. By adding the line to your settings.json of your environment (the right pane). Here is my settings.json-file: You will …

Autonumber Objects in AL

I recently discovered what appears to be an undocumented feature in the current version of the al language extension (aka, the “Modern Dev”, aka DynDev365, aka ExtensionV2, aka VSCode Development Tools for Microsoft Dynamics NAV). And that is “Automatic Object Numbering” On any objecttype, when enforcing intellisense, you get the lowest available number that was …

Remove all custom apps on Docker container (with PowerShell)

Today, I was prepping for my 2-day Masterclass about developing Extensions in Visual Studio Code. And finally, I made some time to make a first version of a function that I have been wanting for quite some time: a function to remove all the custom apps from a docker image. What is the challenge? Well, …

NAVTechDays 2017: Final thoughts

As every year, I look very much forward to one particular conference: NAVTechDays. Not because I don’t like the other ones. But NAVTechDays is special. It’s one person that controls it – completely driven by the community, which makes it quite independent from Microsoft. An insane amount of people make the trip to Belgium, my …
