Item

Description

Reason for deprecation

The functionality that this feature provided was limited.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature was deprecated, and a replacement feature is available. The X++ Workflow API was replaced by the managed Workflow API, because the following features were planned for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012:

  • Additional workflow features, such as advanced flow controls

  • A new managed workflow editor, which requires a managed programmatic interface

Therefore, the Workflow API was refactored as a managed API, and support for the new workflow features and workflow editor was added.
