Business Central 16 Or Later Jet Reports Extensions

Business Central retired the legacy development tool, C/SIDE, and development language, C/AL in Wave 2, replacing them with a modern solution based on Visual Studio Code, Azure DevOps, and an AL language that supports an extension-based approach to customization. Because of this, Jet Reports customers using a Business Central Wave 2 on-premises deployment will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Download the Business Central Runtime ZIP folder (download link).

  2. Extract the contents.

  3. Select the file that corresponds to your Business Central version.

  4. Enter the following command to publish the extensions to Business Central.
    • Note: You will need to replace values surrounded with <> with an appropriate value.
    • Publish-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Path " <PathToFile> \Insightsoftware Inc._Jet Library_1.0.8.21_Jet Library_<Version>_runtime.app"

  5. Enter the following command to synchronize the schema changes from the application.
    • Note: You will need to replace values surrounded with <> with an appropriate value. If a tenant is not specified, the action will be applied to all tenants.
    • Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Name "Jet Library" [-Tenant <TenantName> ]

  6. Enter the following command to install the extensions in Business Central.
    • Note: You will need to replace values surrounded with <> with an appropriate value. If a tenant is not specified, the action will be applied to all tenants.
    • Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Name "Jet Library" [-Tenant <TenantName> ]

Users will now be able to create a Business Central data source in the Excel add-in and will be able to connect to the data source after specifying the server, port, codeunit, company (and tenant, if applicable). For more detailed information about the Powershell cmdlets for managing extensions, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Apps.Management/?view=businesscentral-ps-15 or use the Get-Help command within the Business Central Administration Shell.
