Over the last weeks I have gotten an increasing number of inquiries around MFA. To be honest, I had never tried to setup MFA before, but that didn’t stop me from answering.
My typical answer would be the following:

On the Azure VM, you will find a couple of extensions: BingMaps, O365 and MSBand.
These extensions are primarily there in order to show how you would do certain things in extensions. It is my intention to create an app in AppSource for each of these apps as well when time allows. In this post, I will describe how the BingMaps extension was built and how it works. Continue reading →
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 CU2 will be released any minute now (it is being deployed to Microsoft Download Servers while I am writing this post), but for once, the Azure Image made it before the MSDN download pages.

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Image on Azure has been live for a few weeks and I have received a lot of feedback that it is very hard to setup the new things in NAV, like:
Indeed, you are right. It is very hard. especially when you are used to just running a script and have everything done for you, but if you think back, it is not that different from when you had to create Provider Hosted SharePoint Apps in Visual Studio, setup self signed certificates that didn’t work with anything but Windows etc. etc. Continue reading →
Back in the days – January 19th 2010 to be exact, I wrote a blog post on how to connect to NAV Web Services from PHP here.
Web Services was fairly new and there wasn’t a lot of info out there on how to do things.
The “old” blog post has been read over 76.000 times (yes, seventy six thousand times) and I have received numerous comments and emails on whether this works with NAV 2016 and how you would do things today. Continue reading →
