New Upcoming Conference: DynamicsCon

I just wanted to raise some attention to a new Conference in town: DynamicsCon. Quite interesting, because it’s perfectly aligned with the current world situation regarding COVID-19 issues: it’s a virtual event .. and it’s free! I’m not saying I prefer virtual events. I don’t. But given the circumstances, I guess it makes sense – …

Installing a DevOps Agent (with Docker) with the most chance of success

You might have read my previous blog on DevOps build agents. Since then, I’ve been quite busy with DevOps – and especially with ALOps. And I had to conclude that one big bottleneck keeps being the same: a decent (stable) installation of a DevOps Build server that supports Docker with the images from Microsoft. Or …

Microsoft Dynamics 365: 2020 release wave 2 plan

That’s right. It’s time again for the next round of features that Microsoft is planning for the next major release. It’s weird this time, lacking most info from conferences .. the kind of “silent” release of Wave 1 .. it’s almost like flying blind. Although, there is a crapload of information online. And of course, …

Deploying from DevOps the right way (Part 2): Deploying to OnPrem Business Central environments with the automation API

You might have read my previous blogpost on how to enable the “external deployment” in an OnPrem Business Central environment. Well, that post deserved an “extension” as I didn’t provide examples on how to deploy with PowerShell – which you would be able to do within Azure DevOps. Scenario The scenario is still the same: …

Deploying from DevOps the right way: enabling External Deployment in OnPrem Business Central environments

It seems that lately, I’m only able to blog about something when I have a tool to share.. . That needs to change .. :-/. But not today. Today, I’m going to share yet another tool that we at the ALOps-team have been working on to serve many of our customers. And we decided to …

Getting not-out-of-the-box information with the out-of-the-box web client

A few days ago, I saw this tweet: And that reminded me about a question I had a few weeks ago from my consultants on how to get more object-formation from the Web Client.  More in detail: in Belgium, we have 2 languages for a tiny country (NLB, FRB) that differ from the language used …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Virtual Event, June 3rd, 2020

It was quite expected, I guess.  After all the cancellations of Business Central conferences, like NAVTechDays, Directions, Days of Knowledge, .. , Microsoft announced today that they will host a first “Virtual Conference” called “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Virtual Event” and it will be held on June 3rd, 2020. The content will be 16 …

Multi Root Workspaces in VSCode for AL Development – Episode 2

Remember my blog post on “Multi-root workspaces in VSCode for AL Development“?  If not – it might be interesting to read first, because this is in fact an “extension” (get it?) on it .. so you might say this blogpost “depends” on that one ;-). I concluded the post with some scripts – and that’s …

Dependency Analysis Tool (ALDependencyAnalysis)

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 …

How to REALLY rename all AL-files of your Business Central app..

You remember this post?  I tried to warn you that when v16 comes out, there will be a new code rule that will check your filenames – and you’ll have to (if you don’t disable it) comply with the file name convention of Microsoft.  If you don’t automate your file naming, then you’re in for …
