Configuring Your Azure Data Lake For Dynamics GP Multi-Company

If you have been using Dynamics GP and you have multiple companies setup in your environment, using Popdock’s Azure Data Lake connector, you can associate your Dynamics GP connector and it automatically identify all the companies available from your environment. This makes archiving Dynamics GP data for each company easier and you will have quick access to all your companies historical data.

If you haven’t setup your Azure Data Lake connector, this article will take you through the steps needed to get that setup:

How To Connect To Azure Data Lake

 

In the following steps I will walk you though how to edit your Azure Data Lake connector and associate it with a Dynamics GP connector.  Then I will show how to manage your companies if you happen to have some test companies that need to be removed.

1. Click the menu at the top left and go to Connectors.

 

2. Find the new Azure Data Lake connector that you have added, then click the pencil icon next to it to edit the connector.    

 

3. You should have no lists added on the connector and you should see the Azure Data Lake settings section with nothing selected for Source Connector:

 

4. Next you will want to click the drop down for Source connector under Azure Data Lake Settings and choose your Dynamics GP connector.  As soon as that is selected, Popdock will grab all the companies from your Dynamics GP environment and add them to the Azure Data Lake connector.  Now click on Companies from the left navigation menu.  Here you will see the companies listed and you can set which company you want by default and also remove any company you would not like shown.  You can always add the company back or add a new one if one is added to the Dynamics GP environment and was not added to the Azure Data Lake companies list before.

 

 

Now that your Dynamics GP environment is associated to this Azure Data Lake connector you can go to lists and add which lists you would like to upload to the data lake and it does not ask for the connector you want or company because you have configured the connector to be your GP environment and it will automatically upload the data for all the companies you have selected to be active in your settings.
