LCS – Issue search can’t find other AX versions

Issue

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.

Solution

This is the url after I searched
https://fix.lcs.dynamics.com/Issue/Results/1182525?q=AX2012&x=25&y=10&v=1&i=2_1_3_4&ct=1_3_5_4_2_6&ft=1_2_3&cu=&pi=&pm=&pc=

Then I changed it to
https://fix.lcs.dynamics.com/Issue/Results/

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

In order to connect to AX using mobile apps, one way or another you will end up create service bus on Azure. You will need the ability to access ACS Management Portal. However, if a service bus is created directly in Azure portal, ACS  management portal will not be enabled.  See examples below
