So you want to get started on perf testing, huh???

On November 10th, I tweeted that the NAV 2017 version of the Load Test Sample Project was available – expect some blog posts:-)

Hopefully you haven’t been pressing F5 on my blog for the last 35 days… – but wait no more.

I will of course use the Azure Image as foundation for running performance tests. There are a lot of reasons for this, the primary being, that it is a known foundation, we know whats there, where it is and how to use it. Continue reading

http://aka.ms/navdemodeploy – using PowerShell

It is part of my DNA, that no matter how easy things have become, it can always become easier.

In this post, I have stated, that the easiest way to create a NAV 2017 environment on Azure is using http://aka.ms/navdemodeploy. But what if you want to create the same environment again and again or you need to create an environment in 5 different languages? Continue reading

Updates to the Azure Gallery Image… – kind of…

Note: Updated on November 16th with info on the Excel Add-In

Note: Update on November 18th with info on PowerApps and Flow.

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:

  • Excel Add-in
  • Embedded PowerBI
  • Microsoft Flow
  • PowerApps
  • Azure services
  • etc.

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

Connecting to NAV Web Services from PHP- take 2

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
