Dynamics NAV / Business Central Developer Digest - Vol 366
ArcherPoint Developer Digest highlights Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central development and Dynamics NAV development each week, contributed by our technical professionals. In Developer Digest Volume 366, we discuss per tenant extensions in Business Central, reports from Directions EMEA, and more..
The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of sharing helpful information with one another 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, social media…so everyone can 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 this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV/BC Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV/BC experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
Business Central SaaS: One Per Tenant Extension Per Project
In One Per Tenant Extension to ‘Rule Them All’, Marije Brummel encourages developers to have as few per tenant extensions as possible. What PTE should and should not be, as well as the issues around many small per tenant extensions and one large PTE are well covered in this article. Twitter followers agree, noting that traditional NAV partners will find it difficult to manage multiple PTEs and their dependencies, as well as the issue with the all-in-one PTE where, if one thing fails, the entire extension fails. We’ll be on the lookout for more best practices from Marije coming soon.
Organizing Your Big Per Tenant Extension in Micro Services
Marije continues with her next blog, Organizing your “big PTE” in Micro Services, dispelling the confusion that a big PTE = a monolith. This is not what is being suggested, and she points out that you can code in modules and ship as software. This begins with proper organization of your extension into a meaningful folder structure.
