  4. Download Dynamics 365 Unified Operations Platform Update 11 and copy downloaded archive to specific folder manually created on VM. For instance, C:\Update11
  5. Right-click on the downloaded zip-file, select Properties and click on the Unblock
  6. Extract archive file to C:\Update11\AXPlatformUpdate folder
  7. Open Command prompt application as Administrator, change current folder to C:\ C:\Update11\AXPlatformUpdate by the following command:

   cd C:\Update11\AXPlatformUpdate

  1. Run the following command:

AXUpdateInstaller.exe generate -runbookid=”DevBox” -topologyfile=”DefaultTopologyData.xml” -servicemodelfile=”DefaultServiceModelData.xml” -runbookfile=”DevBox-runbook.xml”

  1. Run the following command:

AXUpdateInstaller.exe import -runbookfile=”DevBox-runbook.xml”

There are lots of ideas in mind related to Chatbot Dynamics ax 365 integration that can be implemented. for example

  1. AX Admin Bot: Who can perform maintenance work on AX system, Like restarts, Sync, Compile etc.
  2. Payable/Receivable Bot: A bot who can provide you some automation, like making some analytics results, or allowing you to create Purchase order or Sales order, if you are away form your system and via Skype or any other channel you can give command to your chatbot to some stuff for you.
  3. Expense creator: A bot who can book your expenses on the fly.
  4. Health Care Bot: My company Mazik Global is doing lots of things on Health care and Chat bots on the Health care is future.  Chatbots Will Serve As Health Assistants
