Two more ways to break your extension

I realize I have been remiss in sharing with you my continued experiences with creating extensions for our Hybrid NAV 2018 database. This is mostly because I have been busy doing exactly that, building extensions. Mostly it goes very well. Sometimes it does not, usually because we mess something up. Recently we ran in to […]

Interface extensions with workflows

In this blogpost I document how to interface between extensions with workflows.
I created an Azure Function and use a workflow response to call that Azure Function

Get server and database information in AL

Three ways to use extension data in C/Side

So, I get it now. We need to develop in extensions. Nothing but extensions. We need to tell our employers to forget about new requirements for half a year and ignore bugs while we developers lock ourselves in the basement and rework our existing code to an extension. Right?
