Dynamics AX Data にSQL を使ってAnypoint からデータ連携

CData Mule Connector for Dynamics AX を使って、Dynamics AX data のJSON エンドポイントを作成するシンプルなMule アプリケーションを作成。

CData Mule Connector for Dynamics AX は、Dynamics AX data をMule アプリケーションから標準SQL でのread、write、update、およびdeleteを可能にします。コネクタを使うことで、Mule アプリケーションでDynamics AX data のバックアップ、変換、レポート、および分析を簡単に行えます。

This article demonstrates how to use the CData Mule Connector for Dynamics AX inside of a Mule project to create a Web interface for Dynamics AX data. The application created allows you to request Dynamics AX data using an HTTP request and have the results returned as JSON. The exact same procedure outlined below can be used with any CData Mule Connector to create a Web interface for the 200+ available data sources.

  1. Create a new Mule Project in Anypoint Studio.
  2. Add an HTTP Connector to the Message Flow.
  3. Configure the address for the HTTP Connector.
  4. Add a CData Dynamics AX Connector to the same flow, after the HTTP Connector.
  5. Create a new Connection (or edit an existing one) and configure the properties to connect to Dynamics AX (see below). Once the connection is configured, click Test Connection to ensure the connectivity to Dynamics AX.

    To connect to DynamicsAX, specify User, Domain, and ObjectServer. You can also surface tables for a specific Company; when this property is blank, the default company is used.

    Alternatively, you can use the .NET Business Connector to connect on behalf of DynamicsAX users. You can obtain the ProxyUser and ProxyDomain properties on the System service accounts form: Click System Administration -> Setup -> System -> System Service Accounts. Additionally, set ProxyPassword.

    By default, only transaction data and base information from the TRANSACTION and MAIN table groups is returned. You can specify which groups to return with TableGroups.

    Set Language to use the same language you use in your DynamicsAX labels.

  6. Configure the CData Dynamics AX Connector.
    1. Set the Operation to 'Select with Streaming'.
    2. Set the Query type to Dynamic.
    3. Set the SQL query to SELECT * FROM #[message.inboundProperties.'http.query.params'.get('table')] to parse the URL parameter table and use it as the target of the SELECT query. You can customize the query further by referencing other potential URL parameters.
  7. Add a Transform Message Component to the flow.
    1. Map the Payload from the input to the Map in the output.
    2. Set the Output script to the following to convert the payload to JSON:
      %dw 1.0
      %output application/json
      ---
      payload
              
  8. To view your Dynamics AX data, navigate to the address you configured for the HTTP Connector (localhost:8081 by default) and pass a table name as the table URL parameter: http://localhost:8081?table=CustInvoiceTrans
    The CustInvoiceTrans data is available as JSON in your Web browser and any other tools capable of consuming JSON endpoints.

At this point, you have a simple Web interface for working with Dynamics AX data (as JSON data) in custom apps and a wide variety of BI, reporting, and ETL tools. Download a free, 30 day trial of the Mule Connector for Dynamics AX and see the CData difference in your Mule Applications today.
