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 Recorder. Trying Event Recorder again popped up the same event () I was working on earlier
  • I added Error this time and it popped up. I was surprised to see this concluding this is something new.
Error added to Event Subscriber
Error message pop-up
Possible Solution: https://andreilungu.com/message-function-not-working-d365-business-central/
Conclusion:

To sum up, this weird behaviour is present in Business Central Version (Version: Platform 14.0.32600.35035 + Application 34422 (US Dynamics NAV 14.1))
Also, I noticed that the Global Variables in the Codeunit you create for a specific Event Subscriber is cleared out when you use them in other Event Subscriber of the same Codeunit.

Hope this helps :)

Introduction: Today, I was playing around with Business Central Modern Client (Windows App).
Out of curiosity I was trying to login to one of my NAV 2017 through SSO.
Pre-requisites: Microsoft Dynamics NAV with SSO configured
Microsoft Dynamics Business Central
Demonstration: 1. Business Central App - Main Page:

Clicking on locally hosted service and putting in the credentials configured for NAV 2017 SSO, we get.
Still skeptical when Business Central login into NAV.

2. Business Central App - Reverse compatible with NAV 2017:


Well well well...
Look whose here.
NAV disguised as  Dynamics 365 for Financials.

I think we all agree that Business Central Modern Client is a WebApp version of Busines Central Online. Basically just like browser in an App.
The difference is that it can connect to NAV as it is just like a browser.

3. Does Business Central Modern Client follow DynamicsNAV protocol?:
Well, it simply does not.
It would be amazing  if it did, as it would mean that we could deal with runni…

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:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/developer/properties/devenv-obsoletestate-property

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.


After you mention the field as…

Enums and Enum Extensions behave differently. They follow a different number se…
