Click System administration > Setup > Checklists > Code upgrade checklist > Model code upgrade checklist> Configure rules for code upgrade > Manage code upgrade rules.

In the developer workspace, click Tools > Code upgrade (layer specific, required for each customized layer) > Configure rules for code upgrade > Manage code upgrade rules.

The Manage code upgrade rules form is opened from either the AOD code upgrade checklist or the Model code upgrade checklist on a Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 target system. Open the form by clicking the Configure rules for code upgrade task in the checklist. You can use this form to import DLLs that contain rules for code upgrades. You can also use the form to filter code upgrade rules by category. The rules are used during detection of code upgrade conflicts to identify conflicts between code versions and to suggest resolutions, if the conflicts can be resolved. Depending on your configuration, conflict resolutions can be applied to the code either automatically or manually.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
