Create SmartConnect Journal – Standard Map: Series Index

eOne SolutionsI recently did a series on Implementing SmartConnect, from eOne Solutions; in this series I am going to create a simple integration map to show how SmartConnect can be used to integrate standard journals into Microsoft Dynamics GP from a predefined folder.

The series index below will update as each post in the series goes live (unless you’re reading a syndicated version of this post in which case check back to the original post).

Implementing SmartConnect: Series Index

eOne SolutionsSmartConnect is an integration tool from eOne Solutions which can take data from any source and integrate it into Microsoft Dynamics GP (and other systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Sales Force amongst others). It has a drag and drop interface to make creating integrations quick and easy for all users rather than just developers (as many integration tools target).

I’ve known about SmartConnect for quite a long time now, but have only just started working with it and thought a series of posts on the installation and configuration process might be useful to do.

The index below will update as each post goes live if you are reading directly here (if you’re reading on a syndicated version, you will need to check back to the original post).

In this series, I will be hands on with them giving feedback of how well they work in reality.

This post is the series index and will automatically update as new posts go-live.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM Web Client Prerequisites: Series Index

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released. In a series of posts, I am stepping through the installation of Microsoft Dynamics GP and additional products and then will move on to taking a look at the new functionality which has been introduced.

Before installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM Web Client, I will be installing the prerequisites. As with the eConnect 18 Prerequisites, I am breaking out the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM Web Client prerequisites into their own mini series. This is the series index and will automatically update as posts go live.

eConnect 18 Prerequisites: Series Index

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released and I am in the middle of a series of Hands On posts.

As part of that series, I am about to cover the installation of the eConnect additional product on a server configured for receiving messages via the MSMQ. However, there are two prerequisites which need to be dealt with before eConnect can be installed on the server.

Usually, when doing Hands On posts, I only cover the core installs and only mentioned prerequisites such as this, referring back to old posts were necessary, but it appears I’ve only made references previously to what you have to do, without actually blogging about it.

So, this series on the eConnect prerequisites, is going to be a brief diversion from the Hands On series, which will resume tomorrow.

eConnect 18 Prerequisites
Set Service Account as Local Administrator
Set Service Install MSMQ Triggers
