Work with Database Connections

In your Contract is defined how many Dynamics NAV database connections you can support with the Authorization Box. 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.

  • Database Name: Enter the name for this database connection
  • Connection URL: You can find your Connection URL in the Webservices page in Dynamics NAV (Objectname ABWebService)
  • Domain: Enter the domain
  • 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
  • Authentication Method: Select the method of authentication
  • Use Webservices for Data: Activate this for better performance. The system wil use extra Webservices in Dynamics NAV
  • Use NTLM: Activate NTLM only if your service tier has NTLM enabled.

Test the connection with the button Test connection. If the connection is successful you cansavethe settings with the buttonSave & Close.

Unavailable Connection

After an error in the connection the system will block the synchronizations. The Manager of the Authorization Box will get a notification from this.

To restore the connection you have to fix the connection problem. After that open the the database connection by clicking on the database name. Disable the option NAV connection unavailableand test the connection with the buttonTest connection.If the test is successful you can Save the settings. You are also able toSave an Process Authorizations(that were not processed because of the connection error).This can take some time.
