Use Azure KeyVault in AzureDevops for sharing licensing and other secrets

You are probably aware on how “secrets” work in AzureDevops. In a way, it’s simple: you can create variables, and store the value of the variable as a secret or not, simply by tapping the “lock” when creating a variable. To share variables over multiple repos, you can create a variable group, and use that …

Using DevOps Agent for prepping your Docker Images

I have yet another option for you that might be interesting for you to handle the artifacts that Microsoft (Freddy) is providing in stead of actual Docker Images on a Docker Registry. What changed? Well, this shouldn’t be new to you anymore. You must have read the numerous blogposts from Freddy announcing a new way …

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 …

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 …

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 …

DevOps Build Agents for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Not too long ago, I did a webinar for ALOps.  The idea of these webinars is simple: how can you get started with DevOps for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.  And I’m not going to lie: I will focus on doing that with ALOps.  But that’s not the only focus of these videos – I …

Multi-root Workspaces in VSCode for AL Development

You might have figured – I’m a VSCode fanboy.  One of many.  You might remember the session I did on NAVTechDays 2017 (Rock ‘n Roll with VSCode), where I dove quite a bit into the possibilities this great tool comes with.  But I didn’t talk about the concept of “Multi-root Workspaces”: an ability of VSCode …
