I have seen situations where it is required for certain AX users to have the administrative access on an environment but not for creating/editing/deleting code or objects. This is particularly difficult to achieve because the standard AX role ‘System Administration’ automatically gives all code access including editing.

As a pre-requisite to create analytics artifacts, the base tables (generally transactional) & underlying data types are needed. For this walkthrough, I have four tables – TransData, ProductGrade, AreaMaster & GenderMaster. The latter three tables are master tables each having two fields Id and Description. ‘TransData’ table is a transaction table which have ‘TransDate’ as date type field and ‘Amount’ as a real type field and three more fields which are pointing to the Ids of three master tables respectively.

Aggregate data entities can now be used as a data source in the form directly which was not possible in case of cubes earlier. This post describes the concepts of dimensions, measures and data entities. Their use in forms will be described in later posts.

Thought of sharing a small yet tricky way to add a web service reference directly from AX 2012 without using proxy DLL, for consuming the same.

Normally, when we right click on AOT "References", we can add only the DLL references from there. (Figure 1)

But if we create a project, and add a "Reference" group, and then right click on it, we will get both the options; of adding the DLL reference as well as adding the web service reference. (Figure 2)
