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 Image is now available in the classic portal and with http://aka.ms/navdemodeploy. The image will be available in the new portal in a few days. Continue reading
This post is #2 in a series of posts about performance testing, please make sure you have read this post first.
In the previous post, you created a NAV Virtual Machine, installed Visual Studio, install Git, Cloned the NAV 2017-Sample repository from the NAVPERF organization, configured the settings and ran the test scenarios. Continue reading
Yesterday evening when I was writing the blog post about performance testing, I got a question on whether I had a script, which could import users from Office 365 into your NAV.
I didn’t, but hey, 10 minutes after, I did:-) Continue reading
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
Last night, the NAV 2017 CU1 image was uploaded to the Azure Gallery. A lot of things have changed, some things looks the same. The biggest change is of course that NAV on the image now is NAV 2017 CU1 instead of RTM, but also the a number of the pre-requisites for NAV have been updated or removed. Continue reading
You might be wondering what actually is happening when you navigate to http://aka.ms/navdemodeploy, so I thought I would lift the hood and show you what is underneath. Continue reading
There is a huge difference in ordering a baked potato and a loaded baked potato.
The potato is the same, but it just becomes so much better will all the add-ons.
So, how would you like your NAV 2017 on Azure?
NAV 2017 on Azure, Loaded please…
of course:-) Continue reading
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:
- Outlook Add-in
- Excel Add-in
- Embedded PowerBI
- Microsoft Flow
- Azure services
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
