Microsoft Dynamics GP is a popular enterprise resource planning (ERP) application used by tens of thousands of sites around the world to keep the accounting, financial, distribution and manufacturing functions running day in and day out.
To do this Microsoft Dynamics GP was accessed via client software installed directly on the user’s computer, or a terminal server. Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 saw the introduction of a second type of client with which Microsoft Dynamics GP could be accessed; the web client. In 2016 this was rewritten into fully-responsive HTML5+CSS making it even more accessible. The installation of the web client is a little more complex than that of the classic desktop client.
This book provides guidance for the implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics GP web client with step-by-step guides, illustrations and links to useful resources.
Who This Book Is For
This book is aimed at Dynamics GP users and partners who intend to implement the web client for Microsoft Dynamics GP for individual clients; much of the process for installing a multi-tenant deployment is the same as the scale-out one, but this book is specifically focusing on the scale-out deployment. This book assumes you have a knowledge of Windows Server, Active Directory for creating users and groups, IIS and application deployments. A basic knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics GP is also required.
What This Book Covers
This book covers the scale-out deployment of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 web client, from prerequisites through installation to logging in, using and managing. An upgrade of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 web client to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 is covered, before closing with a look at troubleshooting problems.
