Good Evening to all, I have requirement on Migration from AX 2012 R3 to D365.
Currently we have HR Payroll, It's having models & Layers.
As per my understanding, have to move in 2 steps,
data migrate & code migrate!
Is there any tool/alternately to migrate?Base line DB Using for migration?how to do code migrate/data migrate?
If you have any reference docs, please provide & please help me out,how to do migrate.
Your comment is so valuble!
Upgrade from 2012 to D365 is well documented on docs docs.microsoft.com/.../upgrade-overview-2012 Please go through docs available and then ask specific questions.
You can get some reference from below links for Code Upgrade process:
Thanks for giving inputs, We are going to start the migration from AX 2012 R3 to D365.
I'm having few concerns,
Now, We have Ax 2012 R3 Environment. But, how to communicate to D365 ? means AX 2012 R3 -> D365 (Any Like LCS we are using)?
How to start at first step?
while moving from LCS, is it move XML files?
Note: I heard about LCS ( I need to sign & get the id.... how to do that)
Please give me the valuable suggestions.
It looks like you completely ignored a link I've provided, it says how to get LCS trial here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/dev-itpro/migration-upgrade/upgrade-overview-2012#sign-up-for-a-finance-and-operations-lcs-trial-or-partner-project did you read it ?
The process starts from creating project in LCS and Azure dev ops and connecting them. How to get access and create project for D365 for finance and operations in LCS is well defined on the link shared above and link below .
High level steps for code upgrade once you connect projects from LCS and Azure dev ops are
- You are going to upload model store from AX 2012 to LCS to get the estimates
- Once you get estimates , run actual code upgrade service from LCS , which s going to check in all your code as Overlayed code. All code is going to be in XML artifacts.
- You are going to deploy VM's for developers and map their VM's to branch created by code upgrade service in Azure dev ops.
- You are going to remove all over layered code and refactor it using extensions . More information about extensions is present on extensibility page
Refer my below blog Post as well
Thanks Sukrut for Quick Reply, Every think is fine. Here, we have AX 2012 R3 & D365 both environments. is it possible, can we import/export through models by using shell scripting From Ax 2012 R3 to D365 !
Is it possible through models ? In-case possible can you please provide commands for that !
No you can't do that. The model files of ax2012 are not compatible with D365FO model files. You need to use the code upgrade tool in LCS. It will upgrade the whole modelstore.
I have few concerns, we are having lot of models but, we need to upgrade only ISV layer models only,
In this case, Are we remove the remaining models?
For upgrade we don't have code upgrade option & please see the below doc,
which tool, we are using code upgrade?
please give me the suggestions,
Why you want to Upgrade ISV code ? You should ask ISV to provide you deployable package for the version you are upgrading to. For code upgrade , you are going to use Visual studio ,after LCS finishes migration and check ins code in Azure dev ops branch.
For Code Migration, I'm using VSTS(Free tool). Here need to create a project, further code migration.
Am I Correct?
You need to
1. Create a D365FO project in LCS
2. Create a ADO (formerly known as VSTS) project
3. Link your ADO project to your LCS project
4. Run code upgrade tool in LCS (you will upload your AX2012 modelstore, and the tool will migrate the code to D365FO format and check in to ADO)
5. Do the actual manual code migration work such as refactoring your overlayerings to extensions. This you do with Visual Studio in a D365FO dev machine
Thank you Nikolaos/Sukrut/Team, I have created
D365FO project in LCS.
Create a ADO (formerly known as VSTS) project.
But, I'm not seen migrate/solution/etc.. it's like,
I'm not able to find the Link for ADO project to LCS project.
So, how to do code migrate with out communication.
Please help me on this.
You need to create a project of type "Migrate, create solutions and learn". Just click the "+" sign in LCS front page. In order to create such project type, you need to have D365FO licenses - either actual licenses or Customer / Partner trial licenses.
Check this link for information on how to sign up for customer or partner trial: docs.microsoft.com/.../sign-up-preview-subscription
Thanks for given Valuable inputs. Now, I'm stuck in upload of Modelstore please see the below snap,
It is some thing showing as "pending process Error/Warning", That means process pending process not yet started or throwing an error.
If it is error, please give me the valuable inputs.
It's pending, 0% complete. You need to wait until it's 100% complete.
You can connect one dev environment to one ADO branch at a time (currently, MS is working to improve this later). So most likely you would want to use a separate environment for this. But it's up to you. You just can't work simultaneously with the two branches. You have to always change workspace mapping, get latest, build, synchronize the database when you connect to another branch from VS.
