Integration Manager - GP2015R2

    Last year we finally upgraded from GP2010 to GP2015R2.  Now my Integration Manager is being a little difficult.  We are running on Windows10 Professional.  

    I use a database program to prepare my journal entries, then write the TXT-FILE to use Integration Manager.  Windows10 does not like my database writing a file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\Integration Manager 14\Samples which I can understand.  So I moved Samples outside of the C:\Program Files to C:\IM14\Samples.  I reset all of my definitions to point to this spot.  All works well.

    But, when I open Integration Manager, it still defaults to the original sub-directory.  I have to manually open the one in the new location.  How can I get it to remember the new file?  Not a show-stopper.  But it affects the other users of Integration Manager.

    Once you open Integration manager, just go to Tools/Options and you can setup the default IM file to open.

    ​If everyone uses the same integrations, we found that a shared Integration Manager database is far simpler on the maintenance/administration side as it allows everyone access to the same integrations.  If you put this out in a shared network location, you can then point Integration Manager to look for the shared database rather than a local one.  You do have to do it on the client, but as it is just once during setup we find it worth the trade-off.  We have found that sometimes the install and configuration of Integration Manager requires switching off between the admin user for the install and the local user for the configuration due to paths and profiles, but once it is set up, everyone can use the same integrations, and if we need to change something, we change it in one place and we're done - no publishing out to clients with worries about different versions.

    Indeed, I agree...  Like my screenshot was showing ;)

    That is a great suggestion.  Currently, I am the primary user of Integration Manager.  The Billing person uses it once a month (if I do not do the contract billing).  I will work on moving me to accessing from a networked shared drive, then move her to accessing from there.
