Version Control in Dynamics AX: Check-in a project and all of its pending objects

by | Updated November 10, 2016 | Development, Dynamics AX

There have been times in Dynamics AX, when I have had to check in a project that includes a lot of objects. Whenever we do a new design or bug fix we always create a project and then add in all the objects that we are making changes to. When completed, we check in the project and all objects with pending changes so they are all included in the same change set.

Sometimes you have a project that is very large and you also could have a lot of other pending objects. This can make the check-in a pain. You have to go through the whole list of pending objects and select the ones that you need. There is the potential of missing objects or selecting an object that isn’t part of the project and shouldn’t be part of check-in. To help resolve or make this easier I made a modification to version control.

Steps and examples to make this small change to the SysVersionControlCheckIn form are below:

1. Go to a project you want to check in. In this example, I have a project that is checked out and some objects that are also checked out.

version-control_eric

2. Right-click on that project and select Check In
3. On the Check-in form all objects in the project that are checked out will also be checked to be included in check in.

version-control_eric2

This is an easy and quick way to check in a project and all the objects included in that project. Instead of having to manually select each one you want to include in the check in. This will also eliminate the possibility of selecting an object that shouldn’t be part of the check in.

To include this functionality there is a small addition to the form SysVersionControlCheckedIn.

In method setSelectedAotElements I added the call to the new method.

Created new method that will loop through the objects in a project and mark them to be checked in if the object is part of the pending object list. If the object being checked in is not a project this logic will be skipped.
