Hands On With MDGP 2018 RTM: eConnect Incoming Queue Bug Fixed

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released. In this series of posts, I will be stepping through the installation of Microsoft Dynamics GP and additional products and then will move on to taking a look at the new functionality which has been introduced.

The series index for this series of posts is here and will automatically update as posts go live.

There was a bug in the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and 2016 versions of eConnect whereby the Integration Service was unable to process messages from the Incoming Queue.

I’ve done some testing of this in eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018, and I’m delighted to confirm that the bug has now been fixed. This is great news as it means we will no longer need to be installing the Incoming queue for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2.

My colleague, Laura Bowie, has also informed me that the year end updates for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and 2016 has also seen this bug fixed.
