Sequence group (form) [AX 2012]

Updated: November 7, 2012

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

Click Master planning > Setup > Sequencing > Sequence group.

Use this form to define a sequence group identifier (ID) to which you can assign sequence IDs and rank them in order of importance. You can create resources or resource groups and assign specified sequence group IDs to them. This is similar to creating items and their values and assigning sequence IDs to them, using the Sequence form.


In the paint industry, color-based paints can have color properties and other attributes, such as latex or enamel. You can assign numeric values to the colors in the sequence code and then rank them according to the sequence in which you want the colors sorted. You could also set up another sequence ID for the type of paint so that latex is preferred to enamel, for instance. Or you could add sequences to a sequence group and then rank them such that all the colors that are available for a specified type of paint (for example) could be sequenced according to the ranking of the sequence IDs within the sequence group.

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