The main focus in Lasernet FO Connector 6.18.2 is:
Which is provided through the following fixes and enhancements in Lasernet FO Connector 6.18.2:
316458@LAC365FO – T&P - Test of query reports
Using a Query as checkpoint for the XML comparison did fail.
This is fixed in LAC365FO version 6.18.2.
326367@LAC365FO – LAC SSRS report - Printing to non-Screen destination - tries to open Viewer as for Screen destination
Using a non-Screen destination for a ‘LAC SSRS’ (report which is rendered through SSRS/Reporting Server as PDF) did try to open the report Viewer as though the screen was used as destination.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
This is fixed.
326749@LAC365FO – LAC 6.18.1 Conditions Issue On Lasernet Server
The following sequence/order is shown in the setup of the Lasernet servers:
This has been added to ensure that it is possible and easy to identify (see) the sequence (order/priority) of the servers.
A Lasernet Server is found by running through the sequence (order) and by finding a server for which the condition for a server is met.
Afterward, it will use the first server on the list without any condition in case none of the Lasernet Servers with a condition was found – this Lasernet Server will get used as a Default server (fallback).
328428@LAC365FO – Error if SSRS report is set up to 'Let SSRS render PDF' and value in 'Subfolder mask' is added
The following error was displayed when using the File/Subfolder mask for a report in which ‘Let SSRS render PDF’ was used.
When using Let SSRS render PDF and when using a Subfolder mask.
Unable rebuild file object form xml node, expected:
This is fixed.
328875@LAC365FO – Issues after URL encoding of XmlFileStorage and OutputFileStorage in 6.18.1
A report which was using the File/Subfolder mask wasn’t properly saved within the proper “subfolder”.
A report for which the Subfolder mask was used/defined
Was saving the files (XML/PDF-Files) within the root and not the proper subfolder-structure
The issue was caused as files were URL-encoded in Lasernet FO Connector 6.18.1.
Lasernet FO Connector 6.18.2 will try to preview/use documents located in the proper folder and hereafter try to find the document in the root in case it wasn’t found within the subfolder.
A task providing the option to move the documents from the root into the subfolder (defined in the File/Folder-mask) is introduced in Lasernet FO Connector 6.18.2.
The task is located in Lasernet > Parameters > General – Fix 6.18.1 file name issues and will run across all legal entities/companies in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
Please start by running this task within a DEV/TEST environment before running the task in PROD.
Running without any of the checkmarks will move all incorrectly saved files from the root into the proper sub-folder(s) across all companies in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
Only find the first matching entry
It will only show the first file found in the root (only the first file (XML or PDF) which shouldn’t be saved in root)
Only process first matching entry
Will only move first file found in root (only first file (XML or PDF) which shouldn’t be saved in root)
Running without any checkmarks
This will move all files found in the root (only files that shouldn’t be saved in the root)
328883@LAC365FO – Check if the additional index is required when opening LAC-Archive from the Reports (Issue with +RecId)
An additional index has been added for the Lasernet Archive.
This Index has been added to ensure better performance when opening the Lasernet Archive from the Lasernet reports and when having many entries/records within the Archive.
323211@LAC365FO – Attachments have an issue on SharePoint when the file name contains Danish characters
A warning was displayed when using an attachment for which the filename contains Danish characters.
This warning is removed.
