Installation using the Setup Wizard

You can easily install the Anveo Mobile App using the Anveo Mobile App Setup Wizard. Please have a look at the video above.

Installation in Sandbox Environments

If you are planning to install Anveo Mobile App in a sandbox environment, please make sure to “Allow HttpClient Request”, which is off by default. Outbound calls for production environments are always on.

If it is still turned off using release 11.02.00.00, you will get the following error message in the first wizard step:
“InstanceName” is not available. Please chose a different instance name.”

Configure th Extension in “Business Central Online Extension Managment”
Turn “Allow HttpClient Request” on

Custom App Events Codeunit

During the installation process, the Anveo Mobile App will use a default App Events Codeunit that processes all incoming data from the Anveo Mobile App directly to the Microsoft Dynamics tables with running all table and field triggers. This is the expected default behavior.

However, it might be required to customize this behavior. If you want to use your own App Events Codeunit, please use this template that is available for download here. As soon as you have registered at least one event, the default App Events Codeunit is turned off and completly replaced by the custom one here. Please make sure to handle all events properly, which is the default behavior.

It is required to make some adjustments to the template:

app.json: The values for “id”, “name” and “publisher” must be adjusted
For sandbox databases, publishing can be done directly from Visual Studio Code by adjusting the value for “environmentName” accordingly.

For production databases, the .app file created in Visual Studio Code must be uploaded to the production database web client (via Extension Management). In live systems, apps cannot be published via Visual Studio Code.
