AL ID Range Manager is VS Code & Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central extensions made for developers who need to manage their object/field IDs across multiple projects (or in the multi-developers environment). If you want to know more about this project, check my previous article.

The project was originally created as a part of our project for hackathon Coding4BC that took place in November 2020 (https://www.coding4bc.com).

How to set up ALRM

Setting up ALRM: AL ID Range Manager is a super easy task. You have to set up Assignable Range in the Business Central extension and set your connection to the Business Central from your VS Code development environment.

Check these two videos that describe all things you should know.
