Verifying the Install Of Web Services For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013

Microsoft Dynamics GPNow that the web services are installed and configured it is time to make sure that they have installed correctly. The Microsoft documentation for Web Services Installation and Administration Guide starts by checking the services are running via the browser and I’ll come to this in a moment, but I always prefer to start with making sure the services are actually running.

This is done in the Services window (Windows Start menu ¯ All Programs ¯ Administrative Tools ¯ Services).

The first service to check for is the Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Host. If the service has a Status of Started then the service is running correctly;

Services - Microsoft Dynmaics GP Service Host

The second one is the eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Integration Service;

Services - eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Integration Service

Next, we need to check that the Dynamics GP service legacy endpoint is functioning correctly. To check this open Internet Explorer and navigate to http://machine_name:port/DynamicsGPWebServices where machine_name is the name of the server where the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP was installed and where port is the selected port (which is 48620 by default). If you see a page similar to the below then the legacy endpoint is available working normally;

Next, check the Dynamics GP service native endpoint is running and working by opening Internet Explorer and navigating to http://machine_name:port/DynamicsGPWebServices where machine_name is the name of the server where the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP was installed and where port is the selected port (which is 48620 by default). If you see a page similar to the below then the native endpoint is available working normally

The final item we need to verify is the Dynamics Security Service. To check this, open the Dynamics Security Console (Windows Start menu ¯ All Programs ¯ Administrative Tools ¯ Dynamics Security Console);

Dynamics Security Console

Click on Action and choose Select Applications;

Dynamics Security Console - Action - Select Applications

In the Security Admin Service dropdown list, select Security Service and mark the Application Dynamics GP Web Services checkbox and then click OK;

Select Applications

The final step is to expand Microsoft Dynamics Security, expand Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Services and select the Policy node; you should then see a list of policies displayed, as below. If you see this list then the Dynamics GP security service is working normally;
