Deprecated: Configurable item check box [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, a check box controls whether an item can be configured.



Reason for deprecation

Architectural changes in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 changed the way that products are defined.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The feature has been removed, and a replacement feature is available. As part of the new product definition concept in AX 2012, the process of defining a product has been made more explicit. Users select whether a product is a simple product or a product master. If a product is a product master, the user must specify the tool or method that is used to create product variants for that master.
