Management Reporter Test Environment and Refresh with Production

  • 1.  Management Reporter Test Environment and Refresh with Production

    Posted 25 days ago
    Has anyone successfully created a Management Reporter Test environment so that you can easily "refresh" the reports and settings from the MR Production? Currently, have AX test environment connected to MR test environment and would like to have the ability to refresh the MR test.
    We are getting some issues with refreshing the test MR environment and every time we try to attempt this, it crashes and the MR test does not work. We can't even export reports out of MR production, because we run into errors.
    Looking for suggestions.

    Hi Kevin, when you know your going to refresh a AX Test environment that has MR setup you should disable the integration in the Configuration Console and stop the MR Services, do the refresh, come back into the configuration console, remove the existing DataMart, and add it back (File ->Configure).

    I might note your MR Reports are safe because they are stored in the Management Reporter database.   If you need to update those you would export out the building blocks and import them into test which may need to happen from time to time.  This is done through the MR Report Designer.

    Hi,
    Ideally, you should have a MR version for your test and one for your prod environment. The reports that you have in prod can easily be exported through the building blocks and imported into the test MR application so that you can run the same reports in both MR.
    Best regards,
