Dynamics Business Central / NAV Development Developer Digest - Vol. 420
ArcherPoint’s Developer Digest focuses on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV development. Developer Digest vol. 420 examines telemetry with Azure applications, a BCAgent application, sales and invoice discounts in Business Central, and a preview of the 2023 Wave 1 Release.
The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, comprises developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating with the common goal of sharing helpful information to help customers be more successful.
As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, and social media…for everyone’s benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share the wealth of information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there?
Thus, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV/BC Developer Digest was born. We present a collection of thoughts and findings from Dynamics NAV/BC experts and devotees worldwide each week. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
Telemetry with Azure Application Insights: Preventing Data Ingestion Anomalies
Stefano Demiliani was working with a Dynamics 365 Business Central customer, and they asked for the ability to detect anomalies on telemetry ingestion. The result? It spurred the creation of an alert based on the Application Insights Usage data type.
The (Rather) Unknown Superstar “BCAgent”
Patric Schiefer recently attended BC TechDays, where he remembered a session on BCAgent. This came in handy as a client recently requested a simple way to access client resources from Business Central SaaS and OnPrem. Besides the detailed post on the challenges, usage examples, and conclusions, Scheifer also references the BCAgent concept and where you can find it.
Microsoft Publishes a Preview of Wave 1 for 2023
The roadmap for the 2023 Release Wave 1 is out, and the notes show that Microsoft has moved entirely to Visual Studio Code. Other updates include notes on Master Data Management and its arrival, approval workflows with Power Platform, and many others.
Working with Sales and Invoice Discounts in Business Central
In this two-part post, Brad Prendergast at DvlprLife.com demonstrates how to set up two different sales discounts for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: line and invoice discounts. The sales line discounts work at the order-line level based on various criteria, while the invoice is a percentage of the value of all lines on a sales document that exceeds a certain minimum. Both posts offer a step-by-step demonstration of setup in BC.
