LCS – Issue search can’t find other AX versions


I went to LCS to find whether or not an issue is a bug recently. No matter what I tried in the search box, it only returned results for AX7. I was looking for an in issue in R3. Where are the other versions? I used to be able to filter under PRODUCT. I was so frustrated because I used to be able to filter by the PRODUCT category.



This is the url after I searched

Then I changed it to

Now I’m able to search with anything with different product versions.

Publishing your ISV Solution on the Azure Marketplace

I found this webcast is very interesting. It is short about 30’ but it gives you an idea how Azure marketplace is an important concept. It is going to be a dominant way that that people look for and find solutions around AX. Microsoft is really moving toward having ISVs get their solution to Azure market place. If you are an ISV, you can get your visibility by publishing your solution. It is an easy way that people can come in do some inquires, read some descriptions, etc to know about your solution.

AX7 – A quick way to find form patterns

In AX, there are 5 form patterns that we use the most :

  • Details Master
  • Form Part – Fact Boxes
  • Simple List
  • Table of Contents
  • Operational workspaces

Sometimes, we want to follow some other patterns but we don’t know where to find. It is time consuming to look for form by form. Here is the quickest way

Step 1: We’re going to look at how to run the form patterns report. This report is generated through Visual Studio and gives us information about all of the forms in the system with the corresponding form patterns


This will generate a CSV file that we can open in Excel



Step 2: Open the excel and we’ll notice in Excel, we have columns that tell us which model the form is in, the system name for the form, as well as the form style and the form pattern


In addition, it gives us information about the controls and the percent of coverage.  So we’re free to now sort and filter and organize this list so we can determine which system form has which pattern applied, and also which forms do not have any pattern applied.  So if I want to sort on this particular pattern column, we can go ahead and apply sort.

Below are all form patterns in AX7
