Microsoft Dynamics 365: 2021 release Wave 1 plan

It’s that time again!  Recently, Microsoft released their plans for the next major version for Dynamics 365.  Quite some time ago, I started with commenting on that (I actually did that because one of the features at that point (being “code customized base app”), was something that I felt needed some criticism (and still do, …

Publish & Run Current Object from VSCode – with a single command

I’m not writing a blog about every single (new) command in my “CRS AL Language Extension”. But this Sunday, I added an interesting one. One that I should have had created for a long time – but simply didn’t think of it, until Daniel (TheDenster.com) explicitly asked for it on GitHub. Just imagine, you’re building …

Download all Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Source Code with PowerShell

You might wonder: why would I need this? Why would I need to download source code of Business Central, while I can simply access it through the symbols when I’m working in VSCode – or even better, while I can simply click the symbol, and look at the code from there? Well … Searchability Didn’t …

Using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Artifacts to get to the source code of the default apps

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: …
