Create retail deployable packages

This topic now applies to Dynamics 365 for Retail and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
This topic helps you find out how to create a Retail deployable package (which is a package that contain all the extensions) for the following Retail components and deploy the package to your environment by using Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS):
Commerce runtime (CRT)
Hardware station
Channel database scripts
Payment connector
Retail Store Scale Unit
Retail proxy
Retail Server
Modern POS
Cloud POS
Hybrid app (IOS and Android POS app)

All customizations for the Retail components are packaged as a single retail deployable package. Finance and Operations doesn’t support separate packages for individual Retail components, such as Modern POS, Cloud POS, Retail Store Scale Unit, CRT, and Retail Server. You must package all extensions as a single retail deployable package, even if you must merge or combine extensions from independent software vendors (ISVs) or various partners.
If your customizations were built and packaged as individual Retail component packages by using a version of the Retail software development kit (SDK) that is older than application version 7.1.1541.3036, the packages are no longer supported for deployment in LCS. You must uptake the hotfix in KB 4015062, and then rebuild and repackage your customizations.
For detailed information about the Retail SDK, see Retail SDK overview.
Steps to create a retail deployable package

Retail deployable package
A retail deployable package is one combined package that contains all your customizations together with all the metadata that is required for deployment. You can use this retail deployable package to deploy your customizations to various environments. You can do the deployment by using the automated flow in LCS, or you can do it manually by using the scripts that are provided inside the package. This topic guides you through the process of generating the retail deployable package.

There are two ways to generate a retail deployable package. You can use the Retail build automation, or you can generate the package manually by using the build tools in the Retail SDK. This topic focuses on the manual method.
Customize or add functionality to the Retail stack.
Use the build tools to identify the customized installation package, code-sign it, and specify the customized CRT, Retail Server, and Hardware station assemblies, and customized database scripts.
After all the settings have been specified in the Customization.settings file in the …\Retail SDK\BuildTools folder, run msbuild /t:rebuild on the root of the Retail SDK folder. You can use either the MSBuild build tool or the Microsoft Visual Studio developer command-line tool to generate the retail deployable packages. Before you build the package, put all the customized assemblies in the …\Retail SDK\References folder. Additionally, put the modified configuration files, such as CommerceRuntime.Ext.config, CommerceRuntime.MPOSOffline.Ext.config, HardwareStation.Extension.config, and RetailProxy.MPOSOffline.ext.config, in the …\Retail SDK\Assets folder.
Retail SDK build tools – Customization settings
Most of the configuration values that the Retail SDK uses to build and package customizations are set in the BuildTools\Customization.setting files. These values define metadata that controls how binaries, components, and packages are named, versioned, and code-signed. After you define this metadata, the Retail SDK build system uses it to identify the customization assets and package them for all the Retail components.
The following configuration settings are now available in the Customization.settings file:
AssemblyNamePrefix – Specify the prefix name for the assembly. When you build the Retail SDK, all the assemblies are prefixed with this name.
CustomAssemblyVersion – Specify the custom assembly version for all assemblies that are built by using the Retail SDK.
CustomVersion – Specify the custom file version for all assemblies that are built by using the Retail SDK.
DelaySign – Specify True to delay signing of the assets during the build.
AssemblyOriginatorKeyFile – Specify the strong name key to use to sign the assembly.

CustomName – Specify the custom name for the assembly.
CustomDescription – Specify the description for the assembly.
CustomPublisher – Specify the publisher for the assembly.
CustomPublisherDisplayName – Specify the copyright for the assembly.
SignAssembly – Specify True to sign the assembly during the build.
ModernPOSPackageCertificateKeyFile – Specify the Personal Information Exchange (PFX) file to use to sign Modern POS and Hardware station.
RetailServerLibraryPathForProxyGeneration – Specify the customized Retail Server assembly to use for proxy generation (both TypeScript and C# proxies).
For 7.1 and earlier versions, you must specify the name of the Retail Server assembly here.
For 7.2 and later versions, use the commerce generator tool for proxy generation. However, if you’re using the proxy on the e-commerce client side, specify the assembly name here.
The ItemGroup section includes the following settings:
ISV_CommerceRuntime_CustomizableFile – Specify the details of all the customized CRT assemblies. You can have multiple entries, one for each CRT assembly.

ISV_CommerceRuntime_CustomizableFile Include=”$(SdkReferencesPath)\MyCrtExtension.dll”
ISV_RetailServer_CustomizableFile – Specify the details of all the customized Retail Server assemblies. You can have multiple entries, one for each Retail Server assembly.

ISV_RetailServer_CustomizableFile Include=”$(SdkReferencesPath)\MyRetailServerExtension.dll”
ISV_RetailServer_CustomizableFile Include=”$(SdkReferencesPath)\MyRetailServerExtension2.dll”
ISV_RetailProxy_CustomizableFile – Specify the details of all the customized Retail proxy assemblies. You can have multiple entries, one for each Retail proxy assembly.

ISV_RetailProxy_CustomizableFile Include=”$(SdkReferencesPath)\MyRetailProxyExtension.dll”
ISV_HardwareStation_CustomizableFile – Specify the details of all the customized Hardware station assemblies. You can have multiple entries, one for each customized Hardware station assembly.

ISV_HardwareStation_CustomizableFile Include=”$(SdkReferencesPath)\MyHardwareStationExtension.dll”
ISV_CustomDatabaseFile_Upgrade_Custom – Specify the details of all the customized database scripts.

ISV_CustomDatabaseFile_Upgrade_Custom Include=”$(SdkRootPath)\Database\Upgrade\Custom\SqlUpdatev1.sql”
Before you start the build process, you must put extension assemblies in …\Retail SDK\References and custom database scripts under …\RetailSDK\Database\Upgrade\Custom.
Database scripts

Database scripts are packaged together with the Retail Server and Modern POS Offline packages, and are run when Retail Server and Modern POS are installed. If there are multiple custom database scripts, they are run in alphabetical order. Therefore, to run the scripts in a specific order, you must name them accordingly. The CRT.RETAILUPGRADEHISTORY table tracks the scripts that are already applied to the database. Therefore, the next package upgrade runs only the upgrade scripts that don’t have an entry in the CRT.RETAILUPGRADEHISTORY table.
For more details about Channel database extensions, see Channel database extensions.
Update the extension configuration files
If you have any new extensions in CRT, Retail Server, Hardware station, or proxy, you should register the details of the extension assemblies in the section of the relevant extension configuration file. You can find all the extension configuration files in the …\RetailSDK\Assets folder. Because all extensions are loaded based on the information in the extension configuration files, you must register your assemblies there.
Before you do the package, you must update the following configuration files if you have any customization in that area:
CommerceRuntime.Ext.config – Register all your CRT extension assemblies.


CommerceRuntime.MPOSOffline.Ext.config – Register all your CRT extensions for offline.


HardwareStation.Extension.config – Register all your Hardware station extensions.


<! — Register your own assemblies or types here. –>

RetailProxy.MPOSOffline.ext.config – Register all your retail proxy extensions.


Retail Server extension assemblies

You should not add or change any custom settings in the above mentioned example or in any of the channel config files. The only supported modification is adding custom assemblies details in the composition section.
Also, as part of your extension or package, do not edit any of the following config files. These config files will be updated with the latest file from core Microsoft package during deployment and your changes will be lost.
Hardware station – Web.config

Before you start the package, you must add an entry for the Retail Server extension assemblies in the of the Retail Server web.config file, so that the assemblies are loaded and used. You can find the web.config file in the Retail SDK\Packages\RetailServer\Code folder.
The following illustration shows an example of a Retail Server web.config file.
Retail Server web.config file

Install NuGet.exe
Some of the dependency packages and references have moved to NuGet packages to minimize the file merge and the size of the SDK. These are available for download from the NuGet.org. When you build the Retail SDK these dependencies are automatically pulled from the NuGet.org based on the packages.config file. For this to work, you need to install the NuGet command line interface and add the nuget to the Windows path after downloading nuget.exe from NuGet.org. The following steps show how to add the nuget to the Windows path:
Open the Windows menu and type “Path”. The Edit the system environment variables will be available.
In that menu, click Environment variables on the lower right.
In the next window, under System variables, select Path and click Edit.
Add an entry for the folder where you would like to store the nuget.exe file or store the nuget.exe file in a folder that is already listed.
Generate a retail deployable package
To generate the retail deployable package, open the MSBuild build Command Prompt window. (On the developer virtual machine, search for msbuild on the Start menu.) Then run the following command.

msbuild /p:Configuration=Release
You can also run the same command in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 developer command-line tool.

After the build is completed, retail deployable packages are generated as a zip file (RetailDeployablePackage.zip) in the Retail SDK\Packages\RetailDeployablePackage folder.
There won’t be separate packages the various Retail components. All the packages will be combined into one bundle package that is named RetailDeployablePackage.
Deploy the retail deployable packages
For information about how to deploy the packages either manually or by using the automated flow in LCS, see Apply a deployable package and Install a deployable package.

SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training and Provisioning

Now, even though deployment and provisioning are actually two different worlds, they are related to some degree. When looking for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training, SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training, or any kind of SQL Server 2016 Training, you might sometimes want to look for courses that talk about provisioning SQL Server 2016 databases as a starting point. For instance we do offer this provisioning course:
Course 20765: Provisioning SQL Server 2016 Databases – SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training

SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training
Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Deployment Training and more can be found under our SQL Server 2016 Training


In the provisioning course we also talk about how to deploy the SQL Server 2016 machine to Microsoft Azure. You can really thinking of provisioning and deployment as two steps. Provisioning means to install the SQL Server 2016 and to otherwise prepare it for deployment. Deployment of course means releasing the provisioned, prepared software SQL Server 2016 in the earlier step, in order for it to be actually used. For instance when you “Deploy” SQL Server 2016 to Azure you are making it available for use internally, externally, or however you want SQL Server to be available for use!

Some Lessons Include

  • Understanding SQL Server Virtual Machines and how they operate within Microsoft Azure
  • Understanding the concepts involved in migrating an On-Premise Database to an Azure SQL Database and the steps needed to do this!
  • How you would go about deploying an Azure SQL Database

There are usually two methods to migrate the SQL Server 2016 database, a type of SQL Server 2016 deployment. The first method involves moving the database with downtime. This may be undesirable in some cases because you may want to migrate the SQL Server 2016 without any kind of downtime.

Here are some guidelines for this kind of migration:

  1. Evaluate the database for what’s known as the compatibility using the latest version of the tool kit known as the Data Migration Assistant (DMA).
  2. Make preparations of any obligatory fixes or other customization as T-SQL or Transact-SQL scripts that you prepare.
  3. Create what’s known as a “transactionally consistent” clone of the original database that is currently being migrated. Please do ensure that there are no more modifications being committed to this source database. There are many ways to make a database no longer able to be committed to
  4. Now deploy these Transact-SQL scripts to SQL Server 2016 to apply the fixes to this copy of the database.
  5. The database copy should now be exported to a file extension .BACPAC file on a local drive.
  6. Now take this .BACPAC file (sounds like “backpack”) and import it as what’s called a new Azure SQL database. You perform this import by making use of a possibility of multiple “BACPAC” tools of import. You can for example use the SQLPackage.exe BACPAC import tool.

The other method is called Transactional Replication. Essentially you will need to do this if you really just cannot have the SQL Server 2016 go down during the data migration. Basically the SQL Server 2016 is migrated transaction by transaction in order to recreate the SQL Server 2016 database into the Azure SQL database. This is using the Publish-Subscriber model. In this case there is a Publisher, Distributor, and a Subscriber as well, one of the Subscribers being on the Azure SQL database.
