MDGP 2013 R2 Feature of the Day: Encumbrance SQL Reporting Services Reports

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments   ● 

The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.

The twenty-third Feature of the Day covered is Encumbrance SQL Reporting Services Reports. New SQL Reporting Services Reports have been created for Encumbrance Management; new Encumbrance Summary and Detail reports have been added to the existing list of SRS Reports. As with other SSRS reports these ones can be run from the Reporting Services Reports navigation list, directly from the deployment location or attached to and printed from a window in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Deployment Server Has Exceeded The Maximum Request Length Error Deploying Reports To SSRS

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 2 Comments   ● 

When Reporting Tools Setup is used t deploy the reports to SQL Server Reporing Services an error be produced if the default configuration of SSRS has not been amended (I thought I’d blogged about this error before, but when trying to find it to send the post to someone I couldn’t find it).

The error produced is the following:

Microsoft Dynamics GP - The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length allowed by the target server. Set maxRequestLength="20690" in the web.config file and try deploying again.Microsoft Dynamics GP – The deployment has exceeded the maximum request length allowed by the target server. Set maxRequestLength=”20690″ in the web.config file and try deploying again.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting – Review Incoming

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments   ● 

I have received a copy of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting to review which I will be doing over the next couple of weeks.

This is an update to the previous edition of the book for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, but this one is for the current version:

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting

I’ll be giving it a thorough read and, setting aside my distaste for reporting outside of Management Reporter, I may even follow some of the examples and post a detailed account.

If you don’t want to wait for my review of the book, it can be bought now from Packt Publishing.

MDGP 2013 Feature of the Day: Multitenant SQL Server Reporting Services Reports

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments   ● 

Microsoft are posting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.

The forty fourth feature they’ve announced is Multitenant SQL Server Reporting Services Reports.

The current version of Microsoft Dynamics GP only supports a dedicated instance of SQL Server Reporting Services for each Microsoft Dynamics GP data instance. With the introduction of the Multi-tenant System Database Architecture, the SQL Server Reporting Services needed to be updated to allow for similar functionality.

With this Multi-tenant SQL Server Reporting Services Reports feature, multiple data instances can be deployed to a single SQL Server Reporting Services instance by allowing the implementer to to deploy the reports to a “tenant” folder.

Microsoft Dynamics GP and Schrödinger’s Cat

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments   ● 

One of the points I make (repeatedly until I see a confirmation they’ve done so) to clients when implementing Microsoft Dynamics GP is that they need to make sure that a maintenance backup of the SQL databases and other resources are being made.

In some cases the maintenance backup is a once a night job, other clients have had one done every twelve hours with log backups made every hour. As long as a regular backup is being made I’m happy and stop nagging them.
