Changes to authenticating AL Language Extension in VS Code Development Environment for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Introduction:

As I upgraded my Business Central AL Language Extension and VS Code, I noticed that I was no longer authenticated to deploy my app to Business Central Sandbox using (Ctrl + F5)
So I noticed a process change in authenticating VS Code and Business Central and you will find the details below.

Pre-requisites:

  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central v15 Sandbox
  • VS Code
  • AL Language 5.0.254558

Demonstration:

After running AL : Clear credentials cache, I tried AL: Downloading the Symbol
VS Code will give you a Pop-Up to Open the Window. Make sure you copy the code and click on Copy & Open
Trying to Download Symbols
Once you click on Copy & Open, it opens a browser window
Select Copy & Open

Paste the Code from VS Code
Insert the code that you copied from VSCode and click Next.
This will open the Login page with your accounts to select.

Select your Account

After this you will get a Message on the Browser and your Symbols will start Downloading in VS Code.
Post Authentication Message

Symbols have started to download


Conclusion:

This is simply a process change for authentication observed after updating the AL Language Extension.

I hope this helps!
