Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release series where I am hands on with the newly released Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release.

Integration Manager is a commonly used integration tool which can be used to import card and transaction data into Microsoft Dynamics GP. One of the, optional, prerequisites for Integration Manager is eConnect; eConnect provides a second set of adaptors for integrating data through Integration Manager.

Launch the setup utility and, under the Additional Products heading, select Integration Manager:

Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release: Configure eConnect on Server

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release series where I am hands on with the newly released Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release.

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 the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release: Install eConnect prerequisites on server

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release series where I am hands on with the newly released Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release.

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 and they haven’t changed, so I’ll link back to the original posts; while 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.
