I am so sorry about the click bait title… I could not resist
Todays adventure consists of troubleshooting why Report Editor and Workflow Editor stopped working in our Dynamics 365 for Operations environment. First som history:
This all started in one of our environments where we noticed that Report Designer for Management Reporter (Financial Reports) was not working… after some troubleshooting we called MS Support and did two days of troubleshooting I got the suggestion to try this in another environment (I am a little annoyed that I did not do this before) and of course it worked. Well, that did not really provida a lead to the root cause. One day later I got a request to configure PowerBI in the environment where it worked and later that day once again tested in the “working” environment and low and behold… it did not work!!! What the_____? This got me thinking about what could have caused this… I installed PowerBI… could it be… Yes it could.
I remembered that I had read in the description of the PowerBI configuration that there was a caveat in the configuration of the Azure AD Application:
“App ID URI: This value is mandatory, but isn’t required for the workspace integration. Make sure that this App ID URI is a mock URI like https://contosoAX, since using the URL of your deployment can cause sign-in issues in other AAD applications such as the Excel Add-in.”
So I went back to Azure AD and I had unfortunately not done this…
I changed this in both environments and… Voilá… it worked.
Note: This has been changed in my original post on PowerBI
Was looking today for a way to test mobile workspaces in Dynamics 365 for Operations (still no good abreviation). This is a bit hidden.
To be able to create a mobile workspace you log into D365O. Once you have logged in you, goto the address bar in your browser and add &mode=mobile to the end of the address and press enter.
Go to the module where you want to create the mobile workspace and click the settings wheel in the top right corner and a new menu item is visible
Click mobile App menu item and then click + Add
In my example I am in the Project module. I click Add to create a mobile app
I click + Add Page and give it a name and a description and click Done
Click + Select Fields to add which fields to view. You add fields by clicking on the plus on each column and click Done when you are ready.
Click Done and Publish workspace to finish the Mobile Workspace.
To test your Mobile workspace, install the Microsoft Dynamics 365 app from Google Play Store eller från Apple App Store, add the URL to your Dynamics 365 for Operations tenant, log on with your Azure Active Directory account and test your workspace
I detta andra riktiga avsnitt av Dynamicspodden pratar vi om en av de största förändringarna i Dynamics 365 for Operations, nämligen gränssnittet. Vilka är fördelarna med ett webgränssnitt? Hur kan jag skapa tredjepartsappar mot dataentiteterna i AX och hur kan jag integrera externt data och Power BI rapporter direkt i gränssnittet.
