Error Purchasing Requisition in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPI’ve been working with a client to create a new standalone Microsoft Dynamics GP test system. We copied the databases to the new SQL Server and were progressing through several tasks making sure everything was aligned and working correctly as they have a number of add-ins which needed to be installed.

One user testing the purchasing module encountered an error when trying to transfer a purchase requisition to purchase order:

Error produced when purchasing a purchase requisition

The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.

The error was produced because the details for the Reporting Services Reports in Reporting Tools Setup had not been updated and the reports deployed; the links were still to the live server SSRS implementation which was inaccessible to the new sandboxed test environment.

Once the links were updated and redeployed the error went away.
