Walkthrough: Processing of inbound ASNs in Warehouse Management in AX '7'

Introduction

A while back I posted a blog post explaining how to configure and process incoming ASN documents in AX 2012 R3. You can find it here.
With the release of the new Dynamics AX version, it was time for an update, since the implementation changed completely, even though the data model behind stayed the same.

If you are interested in inbound ASNs, you have a number of options below to educate yourself on how they work in the current release of AX.

In the process, you will get an understanding of the following concepts:
  • Data entities
  • Composite data entities
  • XML structure of the ASN files
  • Data management workspace
  • Service endpoint authentication
  • Azure Active Directory app registration
  • REST enqueue API, GitHub app
  • etc.
