Sometimes the need to meet the project deadlines can get better of you and you might want to run the quality check next time. You wanted was a swift way to check for reliability and performance issue. That was a problem a year ago. Now, with the introduction of the Solutions Checker, you can inspect your code against a set of best practice development rules specific to customizing and extending the CDS for Apps platform. You can get an access to rich detailed reports listing issues identified, severity, locations, and sometimes the line code, with linkage to detailed prescriptive direction on how to fix the problem.
Sometimes design patterns can impact performance and reliability in your Dynamics 365 solutions. Microsoft has recently released a solution checker to help identify patterns in your common data service solutions that negatively impact performance and reliability.
It works on all online versions from V-9.0 for Unmanaged solution for components like a plugin, web resources, custom workflow activities and provides guidelines and recommendations around the issues found. An unmanaged solution, we know is the one that is still under development or isn’t intended to be distributed. When the unmanaged solution is complete and gets distributed, exported and packaged, it is termed as managed solution.
