Dynamics AX Data をMySQL にレプリケーションするPowerShell スクリプト

PowerShell でシンプルなスクリプトを記述し、Dynamics AX data をMySQL データベースにレプリケーション(複製)。

CData Cmdlets for Dynamics AX をつかって、PowerShell からリアルタイムDynamics AX data に連携できます。データ同期などのタスクの連携にぴったりの製品です。 本記事では、PowerShell からCData Cmdlets for Dynamics AX およびCData Cmdlets for MySQL を使って、同期スクリプトを作成して実行します。

After obtaining the needed connection properties, accessing Dynamics AX data in PowerShell and preparing for replication consists of four basic steps.

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.

Collecting Dynamics AX Data

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module DynamicsAXCmdlets
  2. Connect to Dynamics AX:

    $dynamicsax = Connect-DynamicsAX -User $User -Domain $Domain -objectserver $objectserver
  3. Retrieve the data from a specific resource:

    $data = Select-DynamicsAX -Connection $dynamicsax -Table "CustInvoiceTrans"

    You can also use the Invoke-DynamicsAX cmdlet to execute pure SQL-92 statements:

    $data = Invoke-DynamicsAX -Connection $dynamicsax -Query 'SELECT * FROM CustInvoiceTrans WHERE Qty = @Qty' -Params @{'@Qty'='2000'}
  4. Save a list of the column names from the returned data.

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name

Inserting Dynamics AX Data into the MySQL Database

With the data and column names collected, you are ready to replicate the data into a MySQL database.

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module MySQLCmdlets
  2. Connect to MySQL, using the server address and port of the MySQL server, valid user credentials, and a specific database with the table in which the data will be replicated:

    $mysql = Connect-MySQL -User $User -Password $Password -Database $Database -Server $Server -Port $Port
  3. Loop through the Dynamics AX data, store the values, and use the Add-MySQL cmdlet to insert the data into the MySQL database, one row at a time. In this example, the table will need to have the same name as the Dynamics AX resource (CustInvoiceTrans) and to exist in the database.

    $data | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "CustInvoiceTrans" -Columns $columns -Values $values }

You have now replicated your Dynamics AX data to a MySQL database. This gives you freedom to work with Dynamics AX data in the same way that you work with other MySQL tables, whether that is performing analytics, building reports, or other business functions.


  • Once you have connected to Dynamics AX and MySQL in PowerShell, you can pipe command results to perform the replication in a single line:

    Select-DynamicsAX -Connection $dynamicsax -Table "CustInvoiceTrans" | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "CustInvoiceTrans" -Columns $columns -Values $values }
  • If you wish to replicate the Dynamics AX data to another database using another PowerShell module, you will want to exclude the Columns, Connection, and Table columns from the data returned by the Select-DynamicsAX cmdlet since those columns are used to help pipe data from one CData cmdlet to another:

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name | ? {$_ -NotIn @('Columns','Connection','Table')}
