AX2009 AIF Set the SourceDestination i.e. Endpoint configuration

Question Status

Shashi Sadasivan asked a question on 3 Oct 2013 11:02 PM

I Created an Endpoint (not a Local Endpoint) in Ax , and Disabled the "Default" endpoint.

I want to run a query on the services using WCF, however i cant seem to set the SourceEndpoint on the header element.

I have followed the blog and this allows me to change the "LocalEndpoint". However, the SourceEndpoint element in the Header doesnt get altered.

This is my code so far. Every time i run it i get a message syaing: Endpoint Default does not exist or is disabled.

This gets logged in the Exception table

using SysSvcmod = System.ServiceModel;

using SysSvcmodChan = System.ServiceModel.Channels;

namespace DEL_AIF_Test


   class Program


       static void Main(string[] args)


           using (var client = new AxQueryService.MyAxQueryTableServiceClient())


               using (SysSvcmod.OperationContextScope operContextScope = new SysSvcmod.OperationContextScope(client.InnerChannel))


                   //Prepare header;

                   SysSvcmodChan.MessageHeader messageHeader;

                   messageHeader = SysSvcmodChan.MessageHeader.CreateHeader("SourceEndpoint"

                       , "", "MyEndpoint");


                   messageHeader = SysSvcmodChan.MessageHeader.CreateHeader("DestinationEndpoint"

                       , "", "AUBJ");


                   var xx = client.GetQueryTable(); //This is the service method in Ax

In Ax2009, SourceEndpoint must be set in the From's header property :

use this code to set our SourceEndpoint, and that's working (in the exemple below, my sourceEndpoint is equal to 'TEST')

                   SysSvcmod.OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders.From = new SysSvcmod.EndpointAddress(new Uri("urn:TEST"));
