Upload multiple files in sigle load through code in Dynamics 365 for Operations

  • 1.  Upload multiple files in sigle load through code in Dynamics 365 for Operations

    Posted Mar 26, 2019 01:20 PM
    I'm trying to upload a folder full of files e.g. images through code in Dynamics 365 for Operations
    Standard class only allows to upload a single file by execution.

    Do somebody know how to do that?

    Alfredo,

    As far as I know, there's no 'batch upload' but you could just loop through each file in the directory and upload them one by one in code. To your end user they won't know the difference.

    Hi Alex,

    Thank you for your reply.
    I'm working in D365, I don't know how to loop though files, because the dialog only allows me to select a file.
    I can't work with directories. :/

    Alfredo,
           I've only done individual file uploads with D365FO to date.  I did a quick search around, there is a tool called Recurring Integrations Scheduler, that at a glance could solve your problem.  I've not looked at it in any great detail, but initial signs seems to suggest that may be helpful.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Alfredo,

    I was able to find this discussion on StackOverflow that seems to be asking the same question and it has some nice resources with it:
