D365 FinOps PowerSummit – D365Bootcamp

Last Sunday one of the largest events on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations apps took place at an international level (yes yes, only from #MSDyn365FO), with a duration of three days in which more than 50 speakers participated, all of them recognized professionals and MVPs, the D365 FinOps Power Summit, organized by the people of Power Community. On this occasion, I was extremely lucky to participate with my friend and colleague Adrià Ariste, obviously. We show a session under the title “Take your Dyn365FO Build Pipelines to the next level using Azure DevTests Labs“. Because Microsoft has started to […]

Power Automate & MSDyn365FO: Deep dive (III)

In this third and final post about Power Automate and its connector for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations apps, we are going to talk about the different write operations that exist in it. These operations are the following: Get record Update a record Delete record Before starting with them, we must bear in mind that these operations will be available only for those entities that have the Is Read Only property with value No, that is, entities that allow data to be written. In fact, Power automate itself warns us, as we can see in the following screenshot: Create […]

We continue with the series of articles about Power Automate and the different operations that can be performed on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations apps.

Power Automate & MSDyn365FO: Deep dive (I)

In recent weeks I have received more than one query related to the use of Power Automate to perform actions on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations apps, so I have decided to write a series of articles to delve a little deeper into this topic. Power Automate Power Automate, formerly known as Microsoft Flow, is one of the applications that make up the Microsoft Power Platform. This tool allows you to automate repetitive tasks or carry out communications between different applications through workflows. For this purpose, it has more than 400 connectors that allow us to communicate with applications […]

NetCoreConf Virtual2 2020

Just a few days ago we lived an intense and interesting weekend thanks to the people of NetCoreConf. For those who do not know, NetCoreConf is a free event on Microsoft technologies that tries to bring quality technologies and sessions to those areas where historically there was no availability to attend an event of these characteristics. This year, their purpose was to hold events in Barcelona, Valencia, Asturias and finish in great style in Madrid, unfortunately, the current situation forced them to cancel the last two, but this has not stopped them in their endeavor, and they have organized two […]

No-Code: Extend MSDyn365FO with the Power Platform

No-Code solutions are here to stay, you just have to see the amount of content, use cases, articles, videos and events dedicated, for example, to the Microsoft Power Platform. In my specific case, I do not think that this platform has come to replace all the customizations that we do through X++, although they can help us solve certain problems without the need to generate code, in a faster, cheaper way and easier to maintain. Let’s put a use case for Finance and Operations: We need to notify a user or group of users when customers are modified and are […]

Business Events: Custom Payload (IV)

As you know (I hope 😅), a few days ago we presented a session about Business Events for Developers at DynamicsCon. In this session, we were talking, among other things, about how we could customize the payload of the Business Events that we expose to the outside, to give them a different structure than the one that comes by default, and being able to reuse all the functionality that Dynamics F&O brings OOB. At the end of the demo, we had a few minutes of live Q&A, and one of the assistants (J.C.) made a question related to the part […]

As I said, the event was divided into 2 days and 4 tracks each day, getting more than 60 sessions […]

Working with Azure SQL from X++ using SQLClient

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations brings with it a whole data management framework that allows us to integrate with a database in Azure SQL in a totally standard way. This framework allows us to export ERP information to an external database for reporting (BYOD), so that we can generate our reports and dashboards in Power BI without having to attack the system database (AxDB), but… What happens if what I need is to read or perform other types of operations not allowed by this framework against an external DB? In this article I will show you a helper that […]

5 years is nothing… #AxazureRocks

Directly. Today, Monday, August 3, 2020, just 5 years ago I made the best decision of my life (on a professional level). On this day, 5 years ago, I signed an employment contract with a small, but really small, company called Axazure. I remember quite fondly the day I went to do the interview. Antonio was there waiting for me with the rest of the team (2 more people 🤣), actually it wasn’t even an interview, because he didn’t let me speak, he just started telling me everything he had in mind, with full transparency. It is true that I […]
