Improving Business Central Performance
Speaking of resources, here’s another resource from Microsoft for partners, developers, and administrators to learn how to tune Business Central’s performance. You’ll get performance tips, learn to optimize performance for both online and on-premises Business Central installations, learn how application configurations affect performance, and learn how to resolve performance problems.
Design Patterns for Business Central Developers
Did you know we should not use temp tables when dealing with more than 100 records? Or that we should never use a UI Page as a web service endpoint but should always use a Query or API page with DataAccessIntent = ReadOnly? What about using Queries instead of Record Variables to improve performance?
Microsoft offers many tips for Business Central developers to improve the performance of their code from responsive UI to more efficient web services.
Get a Preview of the Business Events Framework Coming to Business Central
According to MSDynamicsWorld, Microsoft will soon offer a public preview of the new Business Events framework for Business Central. The Business Events framework offers developers a flexible outbound integration option to Dataverse.
Business Events typically reflect a change in state in a process, making them useful in workflows, such as a Power Automate flow. Example scenarios include tracking lead-to-cash events for analysis or data transfers to a Dataverse-managed data lake.
The public preview for the Business Events framework is expected to be available with BC version 22.1 or 22.2.
