Set up offline profiles [AX 2012]

Updated: December 2, 2014

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

An offline profile defines which data is synchronized between a store database and the offline databases at the registers. Each offline profile consists of several offline scopes. Offline scopes define the order in which data is synchronized, and which database tables are synchronized. Microsoft Dynamics AX includes a default offline profile that is named "Default pr." The offline scopes that are included in the default offline profile reflect the organization of jobs in Retail scheduler.

Caution noteCaution

You can modify the default offline profile that is included with Microsoft Dynamics AX. However, if you modify a store's offline profile after you have created the store's offline databases, you must run the Retail Channel Configuration Utility again on all the registers in the store to re-create the offline databases for those registers. (In AX 2012 R2 and AX 2012 Feature Pack, the Retail Channel Configuration Utility is called the Store Database Utility.)

  1. Click Retail > Setup > POS > Profiles > Offline profiles.

  2. Press CTRL+N to create a new offline profile, or select an existing profile.

  3. In the Name field, type a name for the profile. In the Description field, type a description.

  4. On the Line details FastTab, click Add or select an existing offline scope.

  5. In the Description field, select an offline scope.

    To set up the new or existing offline scope, see the next procedure.

  6. For Retail Modern POS, the following settings in the SQLite device configuration FastTab are also required:

    • Offline timeout (sec) – specify the time after which Retail Modern POS will switch to the offline database.

    • Reconnect attempt interval (min) – specify the interval after which Retail Modern POS will try to reconnect to the Retail server or the channel database.

  7. Repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 for each offline scope that is included in the offline profile.
