Enable and Generate AIF Service

To enable and generate AIF service in Microsoft Dynamics AX the following steps should be performed:

Step 1: In Microsoft Dynamics AX go to the following location: Basic > Setup > Application Integration Framework > Services.

Step 2: Locate the 'SC_AXDataServiceClient' service.

Step 3: Click on the 'Generate' button, to generate the service artifacts for each enabled AIF service. The generation process copies the service and all the generated files to the folder '[Microsoft Dynamics AX installation path]\Application\Appl\DynamicsAx\ServiceGeneration'.

If there are configured webshops in the 'Webshops' form the service is copied to the content directory specified for each webshop (by default the content directory is '[Microsoft Dynamics AX installation path]\AifWebservices'). This enables external callers to consume the service and is only necessary for document exchanges using web services.

The generated service artifacts include the following:

  • The '*.svc' file;
  • The schemas for the service operation parameters and return values;
  • The 'web.config' file.


AIF Service Configuration

Step 4: Select the 'Enabled' checkbox to enable the 'SC_AXDataServiceClient' service.

If all steps have been followed and performed, then AIF service is enabled and generated.
