Adding an Address to an Existing Customer via the Customer Service in AX 2012

By Becky Newell | October 23, 2013

It isn’t obvious but to add an address to an existing customer via a service call in AX 2012, call the update operation on the Customer service.  The code below demonstrates how to change a field on the customer record and add a new address to the customer using a console application:

static void Main(string[] args)

{

string customer = “123456”;

AxdCustomer foundCustomer = null;

CallContext context = new CallContext();

context.Company = “xyz”;

CustomerServiceClient proxy = new CustomerServiceClient();

 

try

{

foundCustomer = proxy.read(context, Program.readCritera(customer));

AxdEntity_DirParty_DirPartyTable returnedPartyTable = foundCustomer.CustTable.DirParty;

Program.addAddressToExistingCustomer(foundCustomer);

}

catch (Exception e)

{

Console.WriteLine(e.Message);

}

}

private static void addAddressToExistingCustomer(AxdCustomer customer)

{

CustomerServiceClient proxy = new CustomerServiceClient();

CallContext context = new CallContext();

context.Company = “xyz”;

 

AxdEntity_CustTable custTable = customer.CustTable;

 

AxdCustomer axdCustomer2 = new AxdCustomer();

axdCustomer2.ValidTimeStateType = customer.ValidTimeStateType;

axdCustomer2.ValidTimeStateTypeSpecified = true;

axdCustomer2.ValidAsOfDateTime = customer.ValidAsOfDateTime;

axdCustomer2.ValidFromDateTime = customer.ValidFromDateTime;

axdCustomer2.ValidToDateTime = customer.ValidToDateTime;

 

AxdEntity_CustTable custTableNew = new AxdEntity_CustTable();

custTableNew._DocumentHash = custTable._DocumentHash;

custTableNew.RecId = custTable.RecId;

custTableNew.RecVersion = custTable.RecVersion;

custTableNew.action = AxdEnum_AxdEntityAction.update;

custTableNew.actionSpecified = true;

custTableNew.CreditMax = custTable.CreditMax + 10;

custTableNew.CreditMaxSpecified = true;

custTableNew.CustGroup = custTable.CustGroup;

 

 

//Update the postal addresses

AxdEntity_DirParty_DirOrganization dirPartyTable = (AxdEntity_DirParty_DirOrganization)custTable.DirParty;

 

AxdEntity_DirParty_DirOrganization organizationNew = new AxdEntity_DirParty_DirOrganization();

organizationNew.RecId = dirPartyTable.RecId;

organizationNew.RecIdSpecified = true;

organizationNew.RecVersion = dirPartyTable.RecVersion;

organizationNew.RecVersionSpecified = true;

organizationNew.action = AxdEnum_AxdEntityAction.update;

organizationNew.actionSpecified = true;

 

AxdEntity_DirPartyPostalAddressView newAddress = new AxdEntity_DirPartyPostalAddressView();

newAddress.LocationName = “New Location Name”;

newAddress.Street = “9999 NE 5th St”;

newAddress.City = “Beverly Hills”;

newAddress.State = “CA”;

newAddress.CountryRegionId = “USA”;

newAddress.ZipCode = “90210”;

newAddress.Roles = “Delivery”;

newAddress.action = AxdEnum_AxdEntityAction.create;

newAddress.actionSpecified = true;

 

organizationNew.DirPartyPostalAddressView = new AxdEntity_DirPartyPostalAddressView { newAddress };

custTableNew.DirParty = new AxdEntity_DirParty_DirPartyTable { organizationNew };

axdCustomer2.CustTable = new AxdEntity_CustTable { custTableNew };

 

try

{

proxy.update(context, Program.readCritera(“123456”), axdCustomer2);

Console.Write(“Worked”);

Console.ReadLine();

}

catch (Exception e)

{

Console.WriteLine(“Failed”);

Console.ReadLine();

}

}

 

private static EntityKey[] readCritera(string customerAccount)

{

AxdEntity_CustTable custTable = new AxdEntity_CustTable();

EntityKey[] entityKeyList = new EntityKey;

EntityKey key = new EntityKey();

KeyField[] keyFields = new KeyField;

KeyField keyField = new KeyField();

keyField.Field = “AccountNum”;

keyField.Value = customerAccount;

keyFields = keyField;

key.KeyData = keyFields;

entityKeyList = key;

return entityKeyList;

}
