This makes it difficult to identify if a particular issue has been officially addressed or if a custom fix should be developed. Object Analyzer’s hotfix search identifies such undocumented changes

This can be done by using the search bar in the top right corner or filtering in one or more of the categories E.g. by name, functional area, CU and more.

Other features in Object Analyzer

In the scenario above we pretended that we had our system update to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 with objects on CU 25. If our objects were CU 01 instead, we would have to upgrade specific objects to CU 25 before being eligible to meet the requirements. Object Analyzer auto-merge feature will on average merge 90% of objects for you in minutes. Then Object Analyzer will provide you with a workflow for the remaining conflicting objects. This makes it simple and convenient to complete your CU upgrade. Object Analyzer can auto-merge both standard and your highly modified installation. Learn more about how to simplify and organize your next CU upgrade with Object Analyzer.
