Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release: Integration Manager prerequisites

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. In this post, I’m going to take a quick look at the prerequisites for Integration Manager.

Integration Manager has two adaptors available for integrating data into Microsoft Dynamics GP.

The first adaptor is the Microsoft Dynamics GP one which requires you to have the Dynamics GP client open and logged into the company into which you want to integrate data.

The second adaptor is the eConnect one; this requires eConnect to be installed, although it doesn’t need the Incomging/Outgoing queues installed within eConnect which is different to the earlier post on installing eConnect; it also does not require Dynamics GP installed.

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release: Configure eConnect

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. With eConnect installed, we can now configure the Incoming Queue; I always do this as I have a number of clients using eConnect in this mode.

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

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release: eConnect prerequisites

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. One of the main integration tools used with Microsoft Dynamics GP is eConnect; however, before eConnect can be installed, there are two prerequisites which need to be installed.

I’ve posted about these prerequisites before, so I’ll link back to the original posts; the version of Windows Server may have changed, but the process is the same.

The first prerequisite, is to set the service account as a local administrator on the server. Without doing this, the eConnect services will not start correctly.

Secondly, you need to install the MSMQ Triggers Windows feature. Without this, the Incomging/Outgoing eConnect queues cannot be installed.

Once these two prerequisites are met, you’ll be ready to install eConnect on the server.

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: eConnect Services and Permissions

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.

With eConnect installed on the server there are some changes required to the services and permissions. As with the prerequisites, I am going to link back to the posts I did for the last Hands on series.

There are three changes which are required:

  1. Because the files being integrated this way are quite large, the receiceTimeout setting on the Service.config needs to be changed.
  2. The Incoming_Queue.config needs the ConnectionString and Incoming_Queue settings changed.
  3. The permissions on the MSMQ Incoming Queue need setting for Everyone.

As mentioned in the last post, on the eConnect Prerequisites, I have a number of clients who use eConnect for integration data into Microsoft Dynamics GP using the Microsoft Message Queue. This uses an eConnect installation on a server.

To install the server eConnect, log onto the server and launch the setup utility. Under Additional Products, select eConnect:

I have a number of clients using eConnect in different ways for integration. Several of them use eConnect via the MSMQ and Incoming Queue. Before installing eConnect on the server, there are two prerequisites which must be completed.

I’m linking back to the posts I wrote for the eConnect 18 Prerequisites series when Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM was released as there has been no change in this area.

The first prerequisite, is to set the service account as a local administrator on the server. Without doing this, the eConnect services will not start correctly.

Secondly, you need to install the MSMQ Triggers Windows feature. Without this, the Incomging/Outgoing eConnect queues cannot be installed.
