Preparation

Table of Contents

Make sure to have an active Object Analyzer account and have it listed under your organization. This means you will have access to the same snapshots as the rest of your team. 

Snapshots are necessary in order to use the Job Queue Monitor. If you want to know how snapshots are created for Object Analyzer, view our detailed get started with snapshots tutorial.

This guide is created for on-prem users. For Dynamics 365, please follow this guide instead. 

1) Get the Connector for Job Queue Monitor

1.2) In order to set up the connection between your database and Object Analyzer, you must install it on your local server, where the on-prem version of Dynamics is installed. (if the Microsoft Defender blocks the software, press “more info” > run anyway and let Windows allow the software to run)

1.3) Open the application. The Job Monitor Connector should now appear this way:

2) Set up the connection to your Dynamics server

When the connector is ready, a few steps need to be followed to ensure the right configuration of your snapshot. If you still need a snapshot, follow this guide to create your first snapshot

2.1) At “User” on the connector log in with your Object Analyzer account (confirm your device)

2.2) Press the “Install” button at the Windows Service

2.3) Select the snapshot you want to set up the connection with

2.4) Next, set up the connection to Dynamics. Fill in the your information for the configuration of the snapshot:

  • The Business Central / NAV connection, which means your database name and server
  • Choose your company name from the list 
  • The scheduling (update frequency, which can be cutomized)
exclamation-mark

2.5) Last, start the service at the top of the connector. If the status is set to “Running”, you should be all set. 

3) Setting up the Microsoft Teams app

3.1) Download the Job Queue Monitor app for Microsoft Teams

3.2) Open Microsoft Teams and install the app in Teams

3.3) Select the “Job Queue Monitor” and open the application

4) Activating the Teams bot chat

4.1) Sign in with the “login” command in the Teams bot chat. Next, you should be given the option to log in with your NAVToolbox account, so it connects with snapshots in Object Analyzer.

4.2) Now the Teams bot chat is ready. We suggest starting by adding a snapshot card and adding listeners to these. You should also be able to enter your own commands, or choose one of the pre-defined commands in the chatbox. 

Next we will go through how to set up the Job Monitor Dashboard to track entries
