PowerShell でDynamics AX Data データをCSV に落としてみた

標準PowerShell cmdlets を使ってDynamics AX テーブルにアクセス。

CData Cmdlets Module for Dynamics AX は、直感的なDynamics AX データ連携を提供する標準cmdlet です。 本記事では、DynamicsAX Cmdlets を使ったサンプルを提供します。

Creating a Connection to Your Dynamics AX Data

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.

$conn = Connect-DynamicsAX  -User "$User" -Domain "$Domain" -objectserver "$objectserver"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the CustInvoiceTrans table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-DynamicsAX -Connection $conn -Table CustInvoiceTrans | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myCustInvoiceTransData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-DynamicsAX into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.

Deleting Data

The following line deletes any records that match the criteria:

Select-DynamicsAX -Connection $conn -Table CustInvoiceTrans -Where "Qty = 2000" | Remove-DynamicsAX

Inserting and Updating Data

The cmdlets make data transformation easy as well as data cleansing. The following example loads data from a CSV file into Dynamics AX, checking first whether a record already exists and needs to be updated instead of inserted.

Import-Csv -Path C:\MyCustInvoiceTransUpdates.csv | %{
  $record = Select-DynamicsAX -Connection $DynamicsAX -Table CustInvoiceTrans -Where ("TableId = `'"+$_.TableId+"`'")
    Update-DynamicsAX -Connection $dynamicsax -Table CustInvoiceTrans -Columns ("Name","Qty") -Values ($_.Name, $_.Qty) -Where ("TableId = `'"+$_.TableId+"`'")
    Add-DynamicsAX -Connection $dynamicsax -Table CustInvoiceTrans -Columns ("Name","Qty") -Values ($_.Name, $_.Qty)

As always, our goal is to simplify the way you connect to data. With cmdlets users can install a data module, set the connection properties, and start building. Download Cmdlets and start working with your data in PowerShell today!
