Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The public preview for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 release wave 2 (BC23) is available. Learn more: Link.

I will continue to test and share some new features that I hope will be helpful.

Use the AL Language extension for Linux in preview:

Business value:
To allow developers to choose the environment that fits their needs as a platform for developing amazing Business Center extensions, we are releasing a preview of the AL Language extension for Linux with the Business Central 2023 release wave 2.

I installed a Linux system, let’s test it together.
Download Ubuntu Desktop

First you need to download VS Code and install it.

Or install it in Ubuntu Software Center app.

The AL Language extension for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central now includes a Linux variant. Just install the extension from in your Visual Studio Code installation on Linux.

Or launch VS Code Quick Open (Ctrl + P), using the following command to install.

PS: You can also install Pre-Release Version

Run AL: GO! command.

Since this is a preview, it seems that not all AL commands are supported yet and feedback is particularly welcome, as usual on

But it’s a bit more than when I tested it two years ago. More details: Try customizing Dynamics 365 Business Central in Browser??? (code-server: VS Code in the browser)

Great. I believe Microsoft will solve these problems in the future so that BC developers can have one more choice. Give it a try!!!😁


Hope this will help.

Thanks for reading.
