Business Central 150 Wave 2 Jet Reports Extension


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 "Jet Reports BC Extension Application Files.zip" file  (download link at the bottom of the page) and extract the following files.
    • Jet Global Data Technologies_Jet Library_1.0.6.0_runtime.app
    • Jet Global Data Technologies_Jet Reports_1.0.11.0_runtime.app
  2. Open the Business Central Administration Shell as administrator.
  3. Enter the following commands 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>\Jet Global Data Technologies_Jet Library_1.0.6.0_runtime.app"
    • Publish-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Path "<PathToFile>\Jet Global Data Technologies_Jet Reports_1.0.11.0_runetime.app"
  4. Enter the following commands 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>]
    • Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Name "Jet Reports" [-Tenant <TenantName>]
  5. Enter the following commands 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>]
    • Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance <InstanceName> -Name "Jet Reports" [-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 datasource 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.
