[转]Save/Copy the Filters/Queries/Inquiries to other users in AX

AX 2009 William 2134浏览 0评论

Blogs & code stuff are based on my research & development work. I try my best to publish the safe material. Applying of code in production environment is at your own risk. You can experiment/test my code and then apply for your necessities with care.

Hi,
This is my first blog related to ERP system – Microsoft Dynamics AX

While being new to AX I have started learning about it bit by bit. I greatly appreciate that AX is truly extra-ordinary platform with full of flexibility and scaaaalability.

This article is about copying the Filters/Queries/Inquiries to other users in AX

In the early stage of implementation we planned to share the filters/queries/Inquiries to other users. I was thinking how if we make & setup all the required filters initially and then start sharing them to the needed users and similarly users also wanted to share their queries to each other on daily basis.

But alas, our implementation consultants clearly informed us, it is not possible to share the user queries/filters. The AX has not provided this feature by any means.

Upon searching at AX forums, I found that many people wanted this feature but unfortunately no one has yet got any solution. Few posts suggested to use direct SQL statements in AX database to copy the query-data to the users usage-values in tables, this is workable solution and it can be done by only experienced database professionals but not viable to the end users for their regular needs.

So friends here is the ultimate solution in AX

I have written a safe method in AX for copying the Filters/Queries/Inquiries to other users

It will allow the end-users to save/copy their filters/queries to other users simply and users does not require any technical awareness…

Look at the following screens how the users will save their queries to other users:

Fig1: Using the “Save as” option to save the query

Fig2: Save Inquiry dialog now has “Copy To User” field

Fig3: Simply select/enter the desired user to copy the currently saving filter/inquiry

Fig4: Info dialog showing the query is successfully saved to the desired user

Now you can simply ask the beneficiary users to start enjoying the filter query you have copied to them If the selected user is already having the same-name query then the confirmation to overwrite the query will be shown.

Fig5: Confirmation to overwrite if the filter/query is already exists in the beneficiary user

However the above situation will never arise because the target query name will be appended with audit-details while saving it to beneficiary user

For safety & tracking and to avoid overwriting the beneficiary users queries,

The target query-name will be appended with the audit details while being saved to the beneficiary users. Audit details such as concatenating the current-userid and current-datetime in the query-name, it will help the other users to know who saved the queries to them and when were they saved. Also it will avoid overwriting the users’ queries if they already have same named queries.

Following figure shows all the queries saved to the beneficiary users furthermore showing who and when were these queries saved to them

Fig6: The screen shows the queries saved to him by other user with their userid and datetime in the query-name

Well friends look at the source code finally then…
Note: The solution is written and tested in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 with SP1.
