Install Sana inside Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Open the wizard "Sana for Microsoft Dynamics 365" to see more information.

Install Sana Commerce


You can skip this step, if the deployable Sana package was installed during Dynamics 365 environment deployment.

There are two options of installing the Sana Commerce solution into Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations:

  • Apply the deployable Sana package
  • Install Sana model

See the detailed description of both procedures below and choose the one that is best for you.

Apply Deployable Sana Package

Step 1: Open Environment details of the Dynamics 365 environment where the Sana package must be installed.

Step 2: Click: Maintain > Apply updates.

Step 3: Select the Sana package and click Apply.

In the Environment details, you can see the status and progress of the package deployment.

Once the Sana package is applied, the environment status will change to Deployed, and the servicing status will change to Completed.

Step 4: To sign off on the package application, click Sign off, if there are no issues. If issues occurred, when you applied the package, click Sign off with issues.

For more information, see 'Apply a deployable package in a Dynamics 365 for Operations environment'.

Import Sana Model

To install the Sana model into Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations, use the "ModelUtil.exe" tool and the -import directive. This tool is located in the packages bin folder, typically: c:\packages\bin or i:\AosService\PackagesLocalDirectory\bin.

Execute the following command:

ModelUtil.exe -import -metadatastorepath=[path to the metadata store where the model should be imported] -file=[full path to the model that should be imported]

If you encounter any conflicts while installing the Sana model, you can use the conflict resolution tools that are available in a Dynamics 365 for Operations development environment. For more information, see 'Resolve conflicts using Visual Studio tools'.
