Is there a way to record a macro in AX. In other words to record some steps and then exexute the same steps multiple times just like the macro in GP?
Hello, I'm not familiar with GP. However if it works similar to a macro in Excel, then the answer is no. However there are tools available that enable you to do this using Visual Studio, msdn.microsoft.com/.../jj620891.aspx
GP MACROS allows you the record steps and then exexute the steps automated. Example: record steps of how to create a sales order then execute the same steps 1000 times. This will result in creating 1000 Sales order.
Then you will need to use Visual Studio to record user UI actions and replay them. There is no tool within standard AX which allows the user to capture their UI actions and replay them.
In AX you have task recorder using which you can create Word document or power point presentation but not something like automated process to create data
In AX we have one performance Benchmark tools which is .net based SDK application using which you can do this.. you can automate the process and create the data..
basically this tool is used for performance testing

Nitesh is correct. You can also have a look at the Unit Test Framework:
I have not come a cross that function in Ax, but this is a tool that might help you.
Rudi Hansen: would it be possible to provide us with more information/steps on your proposed solution.
Hi Georgek, you should be more precise.
Witch of the proposed answers do you want a description of how to test.
