Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release: Install eConnect Server

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release series where I am going to go hands on with installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release and associated products.

Earlier in the series, I installed eConnect on a client; the initial install on the server is the same for when you want to use eConnect in message queuing mode, except there are then three steps of configuration which need to be performed.

As the configuration required hasn’t changed, I’m going to link back to the three posts I did when Dynamics GP 2018 RTM was released:

  1. Configure eConnect Service
  2. Configure eConnect Incoming Queue
  3. Set eConnect Incoming Queue Permissions

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release series where I am going to go hands on with installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2021 Release and associated products.

An OData service is one of the additional products available with Microsoft Dynamics GP; it allows for reporting services such as PowerBI to connect to Microsoft Dynamics GP. I don’t have many clients who use OData so I am just linking back to a previous post on how to install the OData Service.
