Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Configure & Use OData Service

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

The last post covered the installation of the OData Service which means it is ready to be configured. OData isn’t realy my specialty area, so I am going to link to the Dynamics GP 2016 R2 Cookbook which Mark Polino and I wrote:
