Warehouse Management II configuration key (WMSAdvanced) [AX 2012]

Updated: March 25, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012


Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 includes new Warehouse and Transportation management modules that are enabled by a single configuration key, along with the previously released Warehouse management II module. Users should enable the configuration key for ONLY ONE of these modules, but not both, in a single-instance, single-partition deployment. Although technically feasible, enabling the configuration keys for both of these modules in a single-instance, single-partition deployment is not supported by Microsoft. 

The Warehouse management II configuration key controls access to advanced warehouse management forms and functions, such as shipment templates and picking routes.

You cannot enable or disable this key in the License configuration form.

The following forms are available when the configuration key is enabled.
