Yet another blog for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. (I hope this name is not changed by now ;) ). This blog primarily targets technical readers. I will be sharing my experience with Dynamics AX using code snippets, errors, and solutions, Tips, and tricks. PS: Don't use any code directly on production DB, review code thoroughly, and test it in DEV instances first.
New classes for Ledger/Default Dimensions in D365FO
Since many days, I was trying to perform few logics over LedgerDimensions and DefaultDimensions, like merge and replace etc. In AX2012 its handled by DiemsionDefaultingService class that having many static methods to help us to play around ledger/default dimensions.
But in Dynamics 365 FO , this class is deprecated, and MS introduce few more classes to help us with these requirements. Here are few names of classes and method that can be used.
1. LedgerDimensionFacade :
This class used for fixed LedgerDimension, we have many static methods here, like Merge Dimension, getdefaultDimension and many more, refer below image.
This class will help us to perform an action over the default dimension. Like, Merge specify default dimension into a single default dimension, replace attribute value etc.
Please refer below image,
Both classed having an almost same method that is available in AX with DiemsionDefaultingService class. See Also, How to merge two dimension
