With the release of Wave 1 2021 lot of new feature introduced . One of the new feature is that partners now can add keys in base table with customized field which was not possible earlier
Today we will see how we can do that
First Lets see what is happening is earlier version of business central. In earlier version we can only add the keys with the field added on table extension and we are not able to see the field available in base table for adding in keys
Look at the following example as I created one simple extension in V17 and trying to add key
Now when I try to add the keys in this table extension it will populate only those fields which are added in table extension
In New version of Business central i.e. Wave 1 2021 we can Add more keys with base table fields and use to improve the performance while retrieving or updating records
Now look at the following example for new version .Just created a simple table extension
Now when I try to add the keys in this table extension it will populate all the fields available in base table as below
So that means we can create keys with
Fields from base table
Fields from table extension
Can I create combination of fields from base table and fields from table extension ?
And the obvious answer is no and reasons are simple that both base table and table extension are two different tables in Sql server.
Recently I encounter this issue as one of the customer would like to set up Gmail as service provided for SMTP mail in business central.
So I started the regular way how we started setting up SMTP and encounter the following issue.
Initial Setup :-
Did the initial setup with required details and while key in I key in the regular password which used while signing in Gmail.
When I click to Test Email setup and encounter the following error.
Now question is how get over this issue as it is something like you have entered some wrong password and you are getting this issue. After investing some hours I found the crucks for this issue as we need to generate App Password
This issue is encounter because of the Gmail security which required to authenticate the app which is going to use Gmail id.
To do this we need to do following
Sign in your Gmail account which you are using in business central.
Click on Manage your google account
Go to Security.
4. Click on App Passwords to generate the app password (Need to enable 2-Step Verification first).
5. Select the required App and Device as below
6. Click on Generate to generate the App Password and you will get as follows
Now go back to business central SMTP Setup and key in this App password instead of regular passwords.
Now again test the email setup and you will happy to see this message and email.
