Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Verify Web Services

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

Over the last couple of posts, I have installed and configured the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP, it is now time to verify that they are working correctly; there are four items I’d recommend checking.

Firstly, open the Services applet from Computer Management and make sure the Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Host is set to a Startup Type of Automatic and that the service is Running:


Next we need to make sure the web services themselves are working. To do this, open your web browser and check the following paths.

Enter http://handson2016r2:48620/DynamicsGPWebServices where the highlighted section is replaced with your server name and the port selected during installation:

Internet Explorer Web Services Verification

Do the same check for the following path: http://handson2016r2:48620/Dynamics/GPService:

Internet Explorer Web Services Verification

If both of the above checks are successful, the next stage is that the Policy objects are accessible.

To do this, launch the DynamicsSecurityConsole from the Start menu and then, in the Action pane, on the right of the application, click on Select Applications:


In Security Admin Service, click SecurityService and, in the Applications, list mark the checkbox next to Dynamics GP Web Services and click OK:

Select Applications

In the navigation pane, expand Microsoft Dynamics Security, Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Servicers and click on Policy. You should see a list of policies displayed in the central panel:

DynamicsSecurityConsole: Policies

If you do not, then there is a problem which needs to be investigated.

      Hi Sandeep,

      I’m not sure. It might, but it is likely to throw certificate errors as the IP will not match the domain on the SSL certificate.
