Enabling the demo users in Microsoft Dynamics AX

Today a customer asked me if the could get a user and test Microsoft Dynamics AX (for search engine reasons i will add AX7) in our demo environment. The customer does not use Azure Active Directory yet and this made things a bit tricky. If they hade a AAD tenant I would just use this method.

After searching around a bit I found that there is a way to enable the demo users. These are users created by Microsoft which are in a AAD tenant owned by MS.

Note that these users are static and you cannot change the password which means that everyone can use these users to log in to your system if you enable them. This is not recommended in a sensitive environment.

To enable the users just edit the user and add contosoax7.onmicrosoft.com to the domain field. The end result should be https://sts.windows.net/contosoax7.onmicrosoft.com

The users all use the password Pass1Word

Geek Trick: Custom “New Tab Page” in Google Chrome

Yesterday I signed up for WunderList (since Microsoft bought it i thought I’d give it a try) and I noticed that there were a Extension in the Google Chrome store which displays my Wunderlist as a “New Tab Page”. That got me thinking: I wonder if I could set up any page as a New Tab Page… Like Todoist, which is the todolist manager I use.

I looked in the Chrome Store and found Replace New Tab Page which I installed and customized to display Todoist… Happy Days
