For example you are able to set up a database connection with your Production environment and another with the Test environment. Go to Setup, Generaland Press the Newbutton under Databases to setup a new Database Connection.

  • Authentication Method: Select the method of authentication, depending on the authentication method the following field wil visible
  • Domain: Enter the domain
  • Key Code:The code from the multiconnector
  • User: The User is for the communication between the Authorization Box and Dynamics and needs SUPER permissions
  • Password: Enter the password from the User that is used
  • Dynamics Connection unavailable: Will be on if there is no connection between the Authorization Box and Business Central
  • Dynamics connection is disabled: With this function it is possible to diable the Dynamics connection. This connection wil than not be syncronised any more.
  • Use NTLM: Activate NTLM only if your service tier has NTLM enabled
