Import Configuration Package on Install

Posted on by 5


I've created an app which needs some default setup data.
After installation I can manually import a configuration package but what I would like is to automatically import the configuration package on installation if the setup table is still empty.

I created a Codeunit of the subtype 'install' and added trigger OnInstallAppPerCompany() and I also added the rapidstart file in a subfolder in the app but I don't know how to handle the import from here.

I could not find an example on how to do this in blogs or documentation.

    Hi Frederik,

    I was wondering if you managed to get this done and if so, how exactly :-).

    You can also create a wizard on your extension setup page and from here loading a configuration package as described here:
