What is AdminUserProvisioning Tool in Microsoft D365 fin & ops ? Add Admin user after backup restore

In various ERP implementation & support projects, sometime it is very hard to replicate a production / UAT environment scenario in dev box for debugging or in some cases it is tedious to do any kind of unit testing due to lack of business data. But luckily, we can solve this problem by doing restoration of transaction database backup in your dev box from a UAT or production .In most of cases, developer can only access in his/her development box and developer is not allowed to access in UAT/Production sever . After restoring database backup, developer starts to face issue – “You are not authorized to login with your current credentials. You will be redirected to login page in few seconds” because his/her developer login ID is not available in AXDB D365 FO database .

To solve this issue, Microsoft has provided a tool called – AdminUserProvisioning.exe . After restoring the database from your UAT/PROD server in your development box, you can add your userId in your dev box D365 FO instance.

The path of tool AdminUserProvisioning.exe is C:\AOSService\PackagesLocalDirectory\bin\AdminUserProvisioning.exe

A complete guide to mobile app deep linking | Adjust

What is deep links in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for finance and operation? Deep links are shareable and secures URLs to a specific form. Optional filters can be passed so that when user will open the deep link and navigate to a specific form then it will show filtered data ore records. In Microsoft D365 FO, below library – Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Utilities.UrlHelper.UrlGenerator is used to generate deep links using X++ .

Sample Code – Below is the sample code of developing & generating deep links for D365 FO forms and records using filter and ranges in form data source. In below example, i am generating the sharable URL (deep link ) of a form – CustAccount and applying a “CustAccount” filter on custTable datasource.

using Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Utilities; // setting library/Dll reference

class DeepLinkTest
    public static void main(Args _args)
        MenuItemNameDisplay menuItemName                = menuItemDisplayStr(CustTable);  // customer form
        MenuItemType        menuItemtype                = MenuItemType::Display;
        str                 filterformDataSource        = formDataSourceStr(CustTable, CustTable);  // filer datasource
        str                 filterFormDataSourceField   = fieldStr(CustTable, AccountNum); // filter field

        UrlHelper.UrlGenerator generator = new UrlHelper.UrlGenerator();
        System.Uri currentHost = new System.Uri(UrlUtility::getUrl());
        generator.HostUrl = currentHost.GetLeftPart(System.UriPartial::Authority);
        generator.Company = curExt();
        generator.MenuItemName = menuItemName;
        generator.MenuItemType = menuItemtype;
        generator.Partition = getCurrentPartition();
        generator.EncryptRequestQuery = true; 
            UrlHelper.RequestQueryParameterCollection requestQueryParameterCollection;
            requestQueryParameterCollection = generator.RequestQueryParameterCollection;
            requestQueryParameterCollection.UpdateOrAddEntry(filterformDataSource, filterFormDataSourceField, "CustAccount"); // applying filter

        System.Uri fullURI = generator.GenerateFullUrl();
        Info(fullURI.AbsoluteUri); // getting deep link
