Comparison of NAV 2018 W1 Objects with NAV 2017 W1 Objects – What’s Difference

With the release of NAV 2018, first thing that comes to mind is how much objects are changed from previous version. To check this I have performed small comparison straight forward on NAV 2017 W1 and NAV 2018 W1 database objects.

I have used power shell commands for quick comparison.

Here we go->

  • To compare two sets of application objects
  • Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Shell in administrator mode.
  • Navigate to the location of your folders by typing a command such as the following:

UpgradeStep-1

In this example, the DEMOUPGRADE folder contains five folders: ORIGINAL, MODIFIED, TARGET, DELTA, and RESULT. The DELTA and RESULT folders are empty. The ORIGINAL, MODIFIED, and TARGET folders contains one or more text files that contain application objects. You can now run the cmdlet. In my case Original = NAV 2017 W1 and Modified = NAV 2018 W1objects.

  • To run the cmdlet to compare all application objects in the ORIGINAL folder to the application objects in the MODIFIED folder, type the following command:

Compare-NAVApplicationObject -OriginalPath .\ORIGINAL -ModifiedPath .\MODIFIED -DeltaPath .\DELTA

UpgradeStep-2

UpgradeStep-2-3

This generates a number of DELTA files that describe the difference between ORIGINAL and MODIFIED. You can open the DELTA files in text editors such as Notepad.

The following example illustrates how a DELTA file identifies the difference between ORIGINAL and MODIFIED.

UpgradeStep-3

You can identify those differences in DELTA folder.

UpgradeStep-4

However on top level review I found there is major change in properties, changes in field size and new codes additions.

Out of which 1014 objects have minor changes like insert, modify or deletion of simple properties or one line code etc.

SQL Server Database Backup using PowerShell

In this post we will see how we can take backup of databases from SQL Server using PowerShell and schedule it as a daily run Plan.

Step-1 : We will create Powershell Script to take backup of Databases in SQL Server.

SCheduleJob-18

Here is the full Script for your ready refrence.

param( $serverName, $backupDirectory )

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO”) | Out-Null

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended”) | Out-Null

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo”) | Out-Null

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoEnum”) | Out-Null

$server = New-Object (“Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server”) $serverName

$dbs = $server.Databases

foreach ($database in $dbs | where { $_.IsSystemObject -eq $False })

{

$dbName = $database.Name

$timestamp = Get-Date -format yyyy-MM-dd-HHmmss

$targetPath = $backupDirectory + “\” + $dbName + “_” + $timestamp + “.bak”

$smoBackup = New-Object (“Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Backup”)

$smoBackup.Action = “Database”

$smoBackup.BackupSetDescription = “Full Backup of “ + $dbName

$smoBackup.BackupSetName = $dbName + ” Backup”

$smoBackup.Database = $dbName

$smoBackup.MediaDescription = “Disk”

$smoBackup.Devices.AddDevice($targetPath, “File”)

$smoBackup.SqlBackup($server)

“backed up $dbName ($serverName) to $targetPath

}

Save this Script file as ps1 extension.

You can create the script using even notepad.

 

Step 2: We will Create Batch file to call PowerShell scrip and to be used in Windows scheduler.

SCheduleJob-18

Save as .BAT file. Here is the batch script for ready refrence:

powershell -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

-File “C:\User Data\SQL Backup\Tools\SQLServerBackupAllDatabase.ps1”

-serverName “INDEL-AXT5283NB”

-backupDirectory “C:\User Data\SQL Backup”

>> “C:\User Data\SQL Backup\LOG\\%date%.log”

Step 3 : Create a Windows Scheduler

Open Windows Task Scheduler.

Create New Task as shown below :

SCheduleJob-18

Enter Name & Description on General Tab as shown below:

SCheduleJob-18

On Trigger Tab create New Trigger and enter details as shown below :
SCheduleJob-18

On Action Tab Create Action and enter information as shown below : Here Select the batch file created in Step 2.

SCheduleJob-18

In Settings Tab do the setting as shown Below :

SCheduleJob-18

Click on OK to Save the Task and return to Task Scheduler Window.

Here you can see the newly created Task.

SCheduleJob-18

When Task is executed you will find the backup of databases at defined path in the script.

SCheduleJob-26

You can also find Log file at the path defined in batch.

SCheduleJob-27

Thats all for this post, will come up will more information in my up comming posts.

More about Loops in PowerShell

Do Until

The logic of this loop is to execute the Do {block} until (the condition is true).

As usual in PowerShell, pay close attention to the style of brackets, the curly brackets or parentheses guides you to write the correct code.

PS-L-1

Note: Don’t try: Until ($strQuit = “N”).  You need here to use -eq, this is PowerShell’s way of comparing two values.

Do While

The logic of ‘Do … While’ is the opposite of the Do Until. {Execute the block statement} while the (condition is true)
PS-L-1

Note: There are difference between until & while in above two examples: Until ($strQuit -eq “N”) While ($strQuit -ne “N”)

 

‘While’ on Its Own – No Explicit ‘Do’

This method is the more traditional way with the (condition) followed by the {Block command}.  Clearly, PowerShell’s While loop is simpler and more basic than the ‘Do … While’ construction in above two examples.

PS-L-1

Note: In this example the ‘While’ clause is at the beginning instead of the end.

 

‘For’ Loop

Below example is a simple method using the keyword ‘For’. As usual there is a (condition) and {Block Statement}.

The speciality of this loop is the <init> and <repeat> sections.

Here is the syntax:

For (<init>; <condition>; <repeat>) {<command_block>}

Example: Times Table for 25

PS-L-1

One side-effect of the For loop is that it always returns the <init> before it tests for the condition.

The <repeat> modifies the $i variable, which is then tested inside the <condition> of the next cycle.

 

‘Foreach’ loop

The PowerShell ‘Foreach’ loop is more complex, and has more arguments than the ‘for’ and ‘Do While’ loops.  The key feature is that the loop interrogates an array, known as a collection.  It then applies a {Statement Block} to each iteration.  In addition to the position and the type of bracket, observe the tiny, but crucial keyword – ‘In’.

 

PS-L-1

 

PS-L-1

# PowerShell ForEach loop to display files in C:\Program files

$Path = “C:\Program Files\” “{0,10} {1,-24} {2,-2}” -f ` ” Size”, “Last Accessed”, “File Name ” Foreach ($file in Get-Childitem $Path -recurse -force) {If ($file.extension -eq “.txt”)     {     “{0,10} {1,-24} {2,-2}” -f `     $file.length, $file.LastAccessTime, $file.fullname     } }

 

# PowerShell ForEach-Objcet piping into block statement

Clear-Host $Path = “C:\Program Files\” Get-Childitem $Path -recurse -force | Foreach-Object {If ($_.extension -eq “.txt”) {Write-Host $_.fullname        } }

An Introduction to PowerShell – Profile

PowerShell is a great way to automate almost anything in Windows.

However, it’s not just a scripting language.

If you find yourself using it as a command line shell it may be useful to store your functions and customizations in a profile that gets loaded every time you load the Console.

The first thing we do here is check if we already have a profile. There is an automatic variable, $Profile, that stores the fully qualified location of the PowerShell profile. An easy way to check if any profile exists is to use the Test-Path cmdlet on the $Profile variable.

Test-Path $Profile

PS-18

As you can see no profile file yet created for me, so we will create one, we can easily do that with the New-Item cmdlet.

New-Item –Path $Profile –Type File –Force

Using the force parameter will cause a profile to be created even if already we have one. This means our old profile will be overwritten and new will be created.

PS-19

Profile can be edit using notepad, which can be easily started using PowerShell.

notepad $Profile

PS-20

You can put any commands, functions, alias’s and even module imports into your PowerShell profile.

I normally work on PowerShell for Navision so I would prefer loading module whenever I launch the PowerShell command, so I include my cmdlets for loading the same in my profile.

PS-21

Save the Profile and close the PowerShell. Next time I launch PowerShell this Module get loaded for me by default.

Finally, I would like to also have some customizations to the console. One is it basically determines if you have opened an elevated PowerShell console and changes the font colour, this way I will always remember that I am running with elevated privileges.

Let us Save the Profile and check the effect of this Profile.

PS-22

That’s all for today.

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts.

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

 

An Introduction to PowerShell – Execution Policies

PowerShell has something called Execution Policies, which stop you from just running any old script. In fact, by default, you can’t run any scripts and need to change your execution policy if you want to be allowed to run them. There are 4 notable Execution Policies:

  • Restricted: This is the default configuration in PowerShell. This setting means that no script can run, regardless of its signature. The only thing that can be run in PowerShell with this setting is an individual command.
  • AllSigned: This setting does allow scripts to run in PowerShell. The script must have an associated digital signature from a trusted publisher. There will be a prompt before you run the scripts from trusted publishers.
  • RemoteSigned: This setting allows scripts to be run, but requires that the script and configuration files that are downloaded from the Internet have an associated digital signature from a trusted publisher. Scripts run from the local computer don’t need to be signed. There are no prompts before running the script.
  • Unrestricted: This allows unsigned scripts to run, including all scripts and configuration files downloaded from the Internet. This will include files from Outlook and Messenger. The risk here is running scripts without any signature or security. It is recommenced that you never us this setting.

To see what your current Execution Policy is set to, open a PowerShell Console and type:

Get-ExecutionPolicy

PS-14

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

PS-15

To run this command you need to run the PowerShell with Administrative rights. Right click on icon and select Run as Administrator and try the command again.

PS-16

When i run PowerShell as Administrator, now i am able to execute the command successfully as in below screen.

PS-17

The proper term for a PowerShell command is a cmdlet, and from now on we will use this correct terminology. It just felt more appropriate to call them commands for this introduction.

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts.

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

 

 

 

 

 

An Introduction to PowerShell – ForEach

ForEach simply looks at a set of list and pulls out one at a time to look at them and then, perform some type of action or set of commands on it.

One different part of a ForEach loop is the keyword in that lives within that parenthetical statement. That tells PowerShell to create a single variable to hold the values that come out, one at a time, for your list.

Let’s define a variable with list of Fruits

$names = “Apple”,”Banana”,”Grape”,”Orange”,”Chiku”

When we make a list within a variable, we have created an array, which is simply a sort of matrix thing that PowerShell holds in memory that lets it store a lots of things at one time.

Let’s also initialize a count variable so we get a feel of how the loop is going.

$count = 0

Let’s use a ForEach loop to count how many names we have. Remember our keyword in we have to create a new variable that we can call FruitName. This holds each single name that comes out of that list of names we have stored in the variable $names.

ForEach ($FruitName in $names)

{

$count += 1

Write-Host “$FruitName”

}

 

Finally, I’ll add a simple Write-Host line after the end (after the right curly brace, that is) to display the count, so we can actually give us the count of names in the list of Fruits.

Write-Host “The total number of names is $count.”

 

Here is the output of above script.

PS-13

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts.

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

An Introduction to PowerShell – Do While

Do While is the simplest of the looping constructs in PowerShell.

A looping construct is basically a piece of code that repeats the same action over and over again to a set of iteration, it loops through a set of statements, doing some action in each of its iteration, until some condition is met or that set of statement is exhausted.

Do While is simply a construct that says to PowerShell, “repeat set of things until some condition becomes true”.

For example, let’s set up a control variable called count and give it an initial value of one.

$count = 1

Then, let’s set up a simple Do While construct that adds 1 to whatever value of count is already in that variable, until the variable has the number 10 in it.

Do

{

$count = $count + 1

Write-Host “The current value of the variable is $count”

} While ($count –lt 10)

 

PS-10

Another way of doing same is:

You can also set up a Do While construct so that your set of commands only executes when the condition is true. You just need to eliminate the do statement, and only use while.

While ($count –lt 10)

{

$count = $count + 1

Write-Host “The current value of the variable is $count”

}

PS-11

Only difference in above both way of using Do While construct is in first way if we initialize Count with 11 then also the loop with execute once as the condition is tested after loop is executed at least once if condition is satisfied the loop will continue else will exit. Where as in second way the condition is tested before it enters the loop and will exit before first iteration of the loop.

PS-12

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts. 

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

 

 

An Introduction to PowerShell – If/Then

The simplest form of decision making in PowerShell is the if/then mechanism.

The code that runs if your comparison clause is YES/TRUE or NO/FALSE must be surrounded within curly braces, it is best practice to put these curly braces on lines by themselves so that you can match them up when you are writing more complicated scripts.

If condition is met then

{

Do This

}

Else

{

Do This

}

Example:

If (20 –gt 15)

{

Write-Host “20 is Greater than 15”

}

 

PS-7

Here the –gt is the PowerShell switch for “greater than”.

 

Another Example using Nesting

If (20 –gt 25)

{

Write-Host “20 is Greater than 25”

}

elseif (25 –gt 20)

{

Write-Host “25 is Greater than 20”

}

PS-8

You can include n number of these elseif blocks in your script, there is no maximum limit for how many times it occurs in script.

If (10 –gt 11)

{

Write-Host “10 is Greater than 11”

}

elseif (11 –lt 10)

{

Write-Host “11 is Less than 10”

}

elseif (20 –gt 40)

{

Write-Host “20 is Greater than 40”

}

else

{

Write-Host “None of above conditions are true”

}

PS-9

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts.

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

An Introduction to PowerShell – basics and how to define Variables

PowerShell is built into Windows, so there is no requirement of separate fee or licensing cost. In addition, different server products come with their own Power Shells, too, which expands the capability to do things you want using PowerShell.

For demo purpose I am using Windows PowerShell ISE.

PS-1

An introduction to scripts

Scripts in PowerShell are basically just text files with the special filename extension of ps1.

To create a script, you enter a series of PowerShell commands in a sequence in a new Notepad file or any text editor you like, and then save that file with extension as .ps1, where name of your file is a friendly description of your script with no spaces.

 

PS-2

How do I run my scripts?

To run a PowerShell script that you already have, you enter in a PowerShell window either:

The full path (folder and file name) of the script, like so: c:\powershell\myscript.ps1

Or

If your script is in the current directory the console is looking at, use a period and then a backslash, like this: .\myscrip.ps1

Other than this, there is nothing special needed for creating a script in PowerShell. You can simply add the commands you like.

 

PS-3

How do I define Variables?

In PowerShell, variables always have a dollar sign ($) prefixed before them.

Let us declare few variables right now:

$name = ‘Ashwini’

$anynumber = 111074

$location = ‘Ghaziabad’

$listofnumbers = 15,20,35,40

 

PS-4

If I want to define a variable with text as its value, I will require to add a single quote on either side of the text value.

Let’s say we want to find out the total number of cmdlets available on the system, we can use:

(get-command).count

 

PS-5

Let’s declare a variable to store that count in. We’ll call it

$numbersofcmdlets

We will store output in this variable of the (get-command).count .

$numbersofcmdlets = (get-command).count

Now we can use this variable as part of something else.

For a simple example, let’s look at the Write-Host cmdlet, which simply writes text to the screen of the machine hosting the PowerShell session. Write-Host has a lots of capabilities, but in its simplest form, you can just say:

Write-Host “Dynamics Nav Blog Site by Ashwini Tripathi”

You can integrate variables with Write-Host. You just call them with the dollar sign notation and work them right into your text.

For example, I can say:

Write-Host “There are $numbersofcmdlets commands available for use on this system.”

 

PS-6

I will come up with more stuffs in my upcoming posts. 

Till then keep practicing and stay tuned for more details.

 

 

Useful Windows PowerShell cmdlets for managing Extensions in Dynamics Navision 2016

Today I will list few cmdlets which will help you getting your task done while working with Extensions.

For Overview of Extensions, please see my earlier posts

Introducing Extensions in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016

Which Object types you can Include & Restrictions applicable to C/AL code in Extension Packages

Which Properties are Restricted in Extension Packages

Just a quick reference you can study in details using links of MSDN below every cmdlet.

Get-Help

To get Help about syntax and options for a specific cmdlet, type the following cmdlet.

Syntax: Get-Help <cmd name>

 

Export-NAVApplicationObject

The Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Model.Tools.psd1 module includes a function, Export-NAVApplicationObject, which runs the ExportObjects command. This means that you can run a command such as the following:

Export-NAVApplicationObject

–DatabaseServer MyServer

–DatabaseName “Demo Database NAV (7-1)”

–Path C:\UserData\MyPackage\ORIGINAL\MyObjects.txt

 

Export-NAVApplicationObjectLanguage

Exports captions from the specified text files with Microsoft Dynamics NAV application objects. The captions are exported to text files.

[-Source] <String[]>

[-Destination] <String>

[[-LanguageId] <String[]> ]

[-DevelopmentLanguageId <String> ]

[-Encoding <FileEncoding> ] [-Force] [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

The resulting text files are similar to the multilanguage files that you can export in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment. If your source files contain more than one language, you can choose to export one language, multiple languages, or all languages

 

Example:

PS C:\> Export-NAVApplicationObjectLanguage

–Source .\ORIGINAL\ -LanguageId “DEU”,”FRA”

-Destination .\RESULT\languages.txt

Click here for more details on MSDN

Export-NAVAppPermissionSet

Exports the specified permission set from a Microsoft Dynamics NAV database to a file.

 

Syntax:

Export-NAVAppPermissionSet

[-ServerInstance] <String>

-Path <String> -PermissionSetId <String[]>

[-Force] [-PassThru] [ <CommonParameters>]

 

Example:

PS C:\> Export-NAVAppPermissionSet

-ServerInstance DynamicsNAV90 -Path ‘.\PermissionSet.xml’

-PermissionSetId SUPER

 

This example exports the permission set with the ID “SUPER” in the database that is used by the DynamicsNAV90 server instance to the PermissionSet.xml file.

Split-NAVApplicationObjectFile

Splits a text file that contains two or more application objects into separate text files for each application object.

Syntax:

Split-NAVApplicationObjectFile

[-Source] <String>

[[-Destination] <String> ]

[-Force] [-PassThru] [-PreserveFormatting] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

 

The Split-NAVApplicationObjectFile cmdlet can copy each application object to a new file, or it can recreate the object in the new file.

The default setting is to recreate the object, but you can change this by setting the PreserveFormatting parameter.

Example:

PS C:\> Split-NAVApplicationObjectFile -Source C:\UserData\MyPackage\ORIGINAL\All.txt -Destination C:\UserData\MyPackage\ORIGINAL\TXT\ -PreserveFormatting

 

Click here for more details on MSDN

 

Compare-NAVApplicationObject

Compares text files with Microsoft Dynamics NAV application objects and then calculates the delta between the two versions. The result of the comparison is a number of text files with the calculated delta.

The Compare-NAVApplicationObject cmdlet compares the text files in the two specified folders and creates .delta files that describe the difference between the two versions

The cmdlet creates a text file for each application object that is different between the two versions.

Syntax:

Compare-NAVApplicationObject

[-OriginalPath] <String[]>

[-ModifiedPath] <String[]>

[-DeltaPath] <String>

[-Confirm] [-Force] [-Legacy] [-NoCodeCompression] [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

 

Example:

PS C:\> Compare-NAVApplicationObject

–OriginalPath C:\UserData\MyPackage\ORIGINAL\*.txt

-ModifiedPath C:\ UserData\MyPackage \MODIFIED\*.txt

-DeltaPath C:\ UserData\MyPackage \DELTA

 

Below example compares the text files in the MODIFIED folder to the baseline in the ORIGINAL folder. The result of the comparison is put into the DELTA folder and also piped to the Update-NAVApplicationObject cmdlet, which applies the updates.

PS C:\> Compare-NAVApplicationObject

-OriginalPath .\ORIGINAL\*.txt

-ModifiedPath .\MODIFIED\*.txt

-DeltaPath .\DELTA -Force

-PassThru |   Update-NAVApplicationObject

-TargetPath .\TARGET\*.txt

-ResultPath .\RESULT –Force

Syntax:

Merge-NAVApplicationObject

[-OriginalPath] <String[]>

[-ModifiedPath] <String[]>

[-TargetPath] <String[]>

[-ResultPath] <String>

[-DateTimeProperty <DateTimePropertyAction> ] [-DisableCommentOut] [-DocumentationConflict <DocumentationConflictAction> ] [-Force] [-Legacy] [-ModifiedProperty <ModifiedPropertyAction> ] [-PassThru] [-Strict] [-VersionListProperty <VersionListPropertyAction> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

 

You specify an original version and compare that to a latest version.

The difference is then applied to the target version.

The result of the merge is a number of text files with the merged application objects.

Any conflicts that the cmdlet cannot merge are identified in conflict files.

Example:

PS C:\> Merge-NAVApplicationObject

-OriginalPath C:\UserData\MyPackage \ ORIGINAL\*.TXT

-TargetPath C:\ UserData\MyPackage \TARGET \*.TXT

-ModifiedPath C:\ UserData\MyPackage \MODIFIED \*.TXT
