Using the External Identifier with Aif in Dynamics Ax

 
An Axd document supports several actions and these actions are identified through their unique identifier names defined on the document class.
 
The External identifier helps us to define custom names to the actions and override them.
 
External identifier can be defined at two different places.
   Basic -> Setup -> Application Integration Framework -> Action form 
        > when the external identifier is defined here it applies to the entire AIF setup.
 
             
   Basic -> Setup -> Application Integration Framework -> Endpoints -> EndPoint ActionPolicies form
         > When the external identifier is defined in this form it applies only to the particular endpoint
 
 
                      
 
  •  The name of the external Identifier has to be unique across Axd’s i.e you should always specify a unique external identifier. (Here find the external identifier specified as  ‘InsertFinanceAccount’)
Using ExternalIdentifier :
 
In the case of the Outbound, the XML generated has the value specified external actions appears in
the <Action> tag.
 
In the case of Inbound the <Action> tag in XML must be as specified in external identifier field setup. when an external identifier is defined for a particular action then it is mandatory to use that in the xml and the actual action identifier turns invalid for that endpoint or the entire AIF based on the setup.
 
In this example i have specified the Action to the external identifier value specified earlier  ‘InsertFinanceAccount’
      
 
 
……………….  digging deeper to throw some more light over AIF guys so keep watching !!!!
