Useful Telemetry resources

Telemetry can be useful in a number of ways, from performance improvement to data analysis. Duilio Tacconi discusses some of his favorite uses for Telemetry. He demonstrates how it can be used to monitor the Count and Average Duration for long-running processes and how Azure Data Explorer checks how your User Interface is performing.

Setting up Interfaces in Business Central

Interfaces are an essential part of exchanging data between applications. Business Central interfaces extend Business Central’s functionality without events. Alberto Sobén, the Business Central Geek, explains what interfaces are in Business Central and how to create, set up, test, and use an interface. Read his blog, How To Use Interfaces In Business Central.

New capabilities for Excel Layouts

Starting in 2022, Business Central introduced Excel Layouts. Excel Layouts let you create reports based on Excel workbooks that can be used to summarize, analyze, and present data from Business Central. Microsoft is adding new capabilities to this feature that lets users create new system worksheets to retrieve context about the report and call Business Central APIs from within Power Query in Excel.

Using JSON tokens in Business Central

JSON is frequently used in Business Central for exchanging information with other applications. Erik Hougaard shows how developers can use the SelectToken method to select a value from a complex JSON object. Watch Process JSON in AL like a Pro with Business Central.
