Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2: Install Web Client Trusted Application

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 was released at the end of May. As I mentioned at the time, I was away from home for work and rather busy otherwise so this series of posts has been somewhat delayed.

However, I am now getting my hands on GP 2015 R2 and thought I would do my usual set of posts on the installation of the various components and also the usage of the new functionality. This is going to be quite a long series of posts, so keep checking back regularly.

To get the most out of the Microsoft Dynamics GP web client, there are a couple of add-ons which need to be deployed. The first of these is the Trusted Application; this is what allows the web client to interact with Excel or Word.

To install the Trusted Application click the small globe icon next to the blue question mark icon in the bottom right corner of the browser window and then click on Install Trusted Application:

Install SQL Server 2014: SSRS Configuration for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn the previous two posts, I stepped through the installation and configuration of SSRS. To deploy the Microsoft Dynamics GP SSRS reports to the SSRS server there is one last piece of configuration which needs to be completed.

There is a setting in the web.config file which needs to be added for the reports to deploy successfully. I have previously blogged about that setting here. The only change in the path will be the version number in the folder name will be higher.

Once you have completed that step you can then move onto deploying the SSRS reports in Dynamics GP; this post was written on Dynamics GP 2010 R2, but the process for deploying them is the same in Dynamics GP 2015.

To configure SSRS, launch Reporting Services Configuration Manager from the Windows Start screen.

The first window launched is the Reporting Services Configuration Connection one; ensure the Server Name is correct and that the Report Server Instance is the one to be configured and click Connect:
