Permission Issues on Posting after deploying Extension in Business Central Production Tenant

Introduction: Issues when you deploy your app in Business Central Production VS Business Central Sandbox. Let us what are the implications of the statement. In my last blog () I have already pointed out the difference in Profile as to how can create new Profile in Business Central Sandbox but the same is not possible in Business Central Production. Pre-requisite: Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (SaaS) Demonstration: 1. I was working with General Journals after deploying the App in Production Environment. Suddenly during posting I go this error. 2. To Verify this issue is not of Permission Set, I gave the User SUPER Permission and tried again. I got the same error despite giving SUPER Permission. Again the same the error, so I checked the Effective Permissions. I noticed that Table G/L Entry has an Indirect Permission. I replicated the same Production in Sandbox. But I didn’t find any issue like this. 3. Moreover, I noticed that w

Issue in Event Subscribers: Expected VS Bug

Introduction: Today, as I was playing around in Business Central with some of my customization for General Journals where I wanted to flow a field from General Journal to G/L Entries using Event Subscriber, I noticed something weird. Pre-requisites: Microsoft Dynamics Business Central Solution: As I was looking for an Event which will trigger when General Journal Entries are posted, I found these entries by browsing through Codeunit 12 Gen-Jnl Post. I found that ' OnAfterRunWithoutCheck ' event works. So I proceeded to confirm by adding a Simple Hello World Message in the Event Subscriber and the message didn't pop. Thus, I wasn't sure if that was the specific event to subscribe to. Message Added to Event Subscriber No Message appeared after Posting I tried with a list of Event Subscribers and also, Table Triggers(OnBeforeDelete, OnAfterInsert) do not work during posting Frustrated unable to find the issue, I realised I missed using Event Re

How to actually use Profile Objects in Business Central

To 'Whomsoever This May Concern', When I was working on a Production Deployment for one of my clients, I noticed that I could not create a Profile in Business Central Production Tenant. I was able to create new Profile in Sandbox. Then I tried using configuration Package and modify the contents of 2000000178 Profile Table and as always configuration package blocked it. There was no way of dealing with this other than   contacting Microsoft Support and this is the answer I get from a Support Engineer I was on the verge to give my clients a link pointing to a specific page i.e After being a little creative, I figured out that developing profile objects might help. And this resolved this issue for me.

What do you do when your NAV 2017 Job is not triggering through Job Queue Entries

Introduction: Working with failed Scheduled Jobs can be a tiresome process. This is exactly the case where one of my client has an Invoicing & Payment Jobs which run once a day and Job Queue Entries fail to trigger these Jobs. No Errors in the Logs, No Execution Entry, Simply No Way of Figuring it out as to why Job didn't trigger. Contacting Microsoft Support, they are asking to simply Upgrade the Application to latest version. Which is not a preferred option as the database size is around 200GB. Let's see how to resolve this in a smarter way. Pre-requisites: Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler Microsoft Windows Powershell Microsoft Dynamics NAV(Administration Module for PowerShell & Development Environment) Books & References: Demonstration: 1. Building Objects to Run through a Codeunit: As you know that Job Queue Entries support Reports and C

TIP: Working with changing Field DataTypes and Deleting fields in Business Central

Introduction: Imagine a scenario where as per the requirements provided by your clients, you have set up the Database structure in NAV/Business Central. Then comes a requirement in Phase 2 which completely redefines the database structure which was provided by you and you need to delete a few fields in a table and move it to another table. Pre-requisites: Microsoft Dynamics NAV Microsoft Dynamics Business Central Books & References: Solution: 1. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, there was a flexibility to delete fields, tables, and keys and using  Force-Sync, you can directly delete the field, table, and keys from SQL Database. 2. Whereas in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, you cannot delete the fields, keys, and tables. In order to deploy this deleted change, you need to mention this field, table, and keys with Obsolete State Removed. Afte
