Azure

In our last article, we went over how to send and receive from C# inside VS next to a unified operations. Now, let's talk about getting messages from inside X++. X++ can't directly get messages from an Azure queue, so far as I have been able to determine. It may be technically possible but we can use C# to do some of the lifting for us where X++ is a little lacking so let's do that first. In our last article, we created a console app which is great to show how things work.

Out with the old and in with the new! For those who worked with 2012, files were a default integration option, for better or worse. However, we no longer have access to files and/or a file system. So, how are we going to get data to D365FO from on an on premise source? or a source in a different cloud? or even a source inside Azure? Easy! Enter the Azure Queue. We have an area we can push small messages to for D365FO to consume. There are a few hoops to jump though in order to get everything to work given some of the technical constraints with 4.5.2, 4.6.1 and CORE.
