As we all Dynamics NAV Developers are trying to constantly upgrades ourselves to #msdyn365bc developers.

We all understand that having Apps available on AppSource is the future for all of us. As of today there are 1113 apps available in AppSource for Business Central.

With this change as we are learning we also need to understand How do I build Apps for Business Central. 

As we are learning it and trying to build apps for the community we should also try to keep our development methodology align with Microsoft.

If we apply all best practices defined by Microsoft -

  • Our Apps are available in AppSource timely.
  • Reduce efforts for Microsoft to validate our apps.

In this article, we will talk about How should we go ahead in writing apps for BC Online. 

Microsoft have upgrade MSDN documentation which will share all steps required for App Validation.
