Dynamics AX 2009 FAQ

Development

Is it possible to use BC.NET to get data from AX into a report

Yes. However, keep in mind that in AX2012 this is no longer something we encourage you do to.

Deployment

Why does it take so long to deploy the reports to SSRS?

There are two factors:
  • To deploy a report, the report must be built - in other words compiled first. Compiling takes some time.
  • Each report design must be deployed as a separate SSRS report. And for every language installed in AX, a new design must be deployed. Thus 200 AX SSRS reports with 40 languages yields 800 reports to deploy.

NOTE: in AX2012 SSRS report deployment is much faster
