When using the AX Office connector and document data sources, should the "Service" type data sources appear or only "Query reference"?

Posted on by 150

We're on AX 2012 R3 CU9 and when using the Office connector, should the data source types of "Service" show up in Word? Or are they not available?

I'm talking about under [OrganizationAdministration\Setup\Document management\Document data sources]. I created a service and a query reference for testing as pictured below.

I went to my Inbound Ports and created a port and added every LedgerExchange* type of service operation that I could and activated the port.

When I go to Word and try to add data, I see the CustTable one I created, but no "LedgerExchangeRateService" with the group of "Basic":


Are "Service" types supposed to appear? Is there something I need to do for them to show up?
