#GPPT What’s New: Security Activity Tracking and Security Log

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAs GP Power Tools approaches release, it is time to continue the What’s New series and explain another of the new features added to the product.

You can now enable Security Activity Tracking to collect statistical data on the usage of the various resources and security objects within the system.

This tracking can provide accurate data on which users use particular areas of the Microsoft Dynamics GP application and can be used to assist with the creation of Security Tasks and Security Roles when designing your security model.

The feature is enabled from the Administrator Settings window. Once enabled GP Power Tools will track every call to the application level security system and log whether access was granted or denied.

Administrator Settings 1

The information collected is kept on a user & company, user, company and system basis, so you can analyse the data from whichever angle you wish.

The new Security Log window is used to review the captured activity information. You can view the information for any user and/or company you select. The data can be initially sorted by resource or one of the 3 count columns (Total, Granted or Denied), however once the data is displayed you can click on the column headers to change the sorting as desired.

Security Log 

You can select any row in the data and right click or use the Security button to drill down to the Security Information window. You can right click or use the Open button to open a window or report if you want to see which window or report it is. You can also double click to open the Resource Information to that object or resource.

Finally you can use the checkboxes to select individual resources and/or security objects, then use the Security button to create Security Tasks and Security Roles from the selected items.

Security Log Create Task

You can now build your security model based on actual historical usage data from your own system.

Enjoy

Microsoft Windows 10 is now here

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFollowing on from yesterday’s post: Microsoft Windows 10 is almost here.

Windows 10 is now here and starting to install on PCs that reserved their free upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

My eldest son has already upgraded his Surface Pro 2 and is trying out Cortana, the Edge browser and the Xbox One integration.

Cortana

He has already tried streaming the video from the Xbox One to his screen. So now he can play Xbox games from his room while he is meant to be studying…. Great. :(

If you want to download the ISO images for Windows 10, check out the official Microsoft site below:

Remember you must upgrade first before you can do a clean install, as mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Enjoy

Microsoft Windows 10 is almost here

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIt is already the 29th July 2015 in Australia and Windows 10 is almost here.

I know that because it is already downloading into a hidden C:$Windows.~BT folder onto my machines.

Now one question that many people are asking is “Can I do the free upgrade as a clean install if I have downloaded the ISO image?

The short answer is No.

The long answer is ….

Can I perform a clean install using the Free upgrade?

No, it will require that you are running a previous qualifying version and start the upgrade from within the qualifying version. You can initiate a clean install after completing the Upgrade.

Please be aware that you cannot use the free upgrade offer to perform a clean install on first attempt. You must first upgrade from the qualifying version of Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 (whether you do it through Windows Update or using the .ISO file). Ensure the upgrade is completed successfully and then ensure that it is activated. You can then proceed to do a clean install by using recovery media or using the Reset function in Start > Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Reset this PC (Get Started).

For more information on all your Windows 10 questions, please see the following article:

GP2015 R2 Upgrade – GP Utilities “SynchronizeTableData()” Error & Fix

This issue has already been reported and it’s also been addressed. I would like to post this still. To act more like a pointer. It’s quite crucial in nature.

I have been testing GP2015 R2 upgrade on my test environment when I faced the following error message:

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 6.10.32 PM

Quite evidently, upgrade didn’t go through after. I remembered this being posted on our GP Support & Services blog. Dug the post and got the solution.

Here’s the post: Known Upgrade Issues When Upgrading To Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2

Please note that this has been fixed already and is available with June 2015 Update.

Telegram Messenger Groups for Microsoft Dynamics

I have created a few Telegram Messenger groups for various Microsoft Dynamics technologies for increasing efficient collaboration among the community folks. This was created as I was thinking of an different kind of platform apart from communities to interact with the community members. With the growing demand for social media insight, I decided to use one of the social media networking tool to create a community for Microsoft Dynamics

Developing using Dexterity for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday, I was contacted by a fellow Dexterity developer who was having trouble getting Dexterity for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 to run Dynamics.dic in Test Mode.

In this article, I will take you through the errors you could get and how to resolve them. Some of these you might know from previous versions, others are new to GP 2015.

For this article I am using Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 and Dexterity 14.00.0084 which comes on the DVD image. I have copied a clean Dynamics.dic from the application folder into a subfolder in the Dexterity folder. I opened the dictionary with Dexterity and selected Debug >> Test Mode (Ctrl-T).

The first error I get is “You need to run Dynamics.dic Utilities before you can run Dynamics.dic. Do you want to launch Dynamics.dic Utilities now?“.

Error1

Note: The name of the dictionary (in this case Dynamics.dic) will be whatever your development dictionary file is called.

This issue is has been around since the beginning and is because the Dynamics code is looking at the Dex.ini file for the settings INITIAL and SYNCHRONIZE and unless it can find those set to FALSE, it will think that it is the first time Dynamics GP is being launched and ask to go to the Utilities to set up the databases and synchronize the dictionary to the account framework.

Solution: The easiest solution is to copy the Dex.ini file from the Application’s Data subfolder to the Dexterity’s Data subfolder. However, be sure to make the couple of changes below:

  • Change DexHelpPath to point to the Dexterity folder.
  • Add ShowResids=TRUE (for pre GP 2015, GP 2015 now shows Resource IDs as default)

Launching into Test Mode again and I get “Unhandled script exception: SCRIPTS – data area EXCEPTION_CLASS_SCRIPT_MEMORY SCRIPT_CMD_EXTERN

Error2

 Clicking OK and the Login window opens, but it is not fully drawn.

 ErrorLogin

The problem here is that script that reads the ODBC Data Sources for the Server drop down list is trying to call an external library. This library is part of Dynamics GP, but not actually part of Dexterity and so is not installed.

Solution: Copy the GPDWIN32.dll from the Application folder to the Dexterity folder. This issue started from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 onwards.


Launching Test Mode again and I can login, but get another error just after login. The error is “Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.“.

Error3

This issue was introduced with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 when the homepage was changed.

Solution: Copy the following files from the Application folder to the Dexterity folder:

  • Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage.dll
  • Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage.Framework.dll

However, the error will still occur as GP 2015 now also requires the following file to be copied:

  • GPIcons.dll

Finally, you will also need to copy the following file to the folder where your development dictionary resides to avoid warnings when compiling:

  • Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessObjects.dll

Depending on your scripts you might also need the following files copied to the development dictionary folder to allow compilation without errors:

  • Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.ManagementReporterServices.dll
  • Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Svc.Application.dll

Now you should be good to go. Good luck.

Hope this article helps make your life easier.
