Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations AOT Browser

What is the AOT Browser?

In Dynamics AX 2012 and earlier it was possible for power users to be able to open and browse the contents of the AOT (Application Object Tree) from the UI. This functionality was removed in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations as all development is now done in Visual Studio. This means that in order to browse the contents of the AOT, one now needs access to a development environment with Visual Studio.

AOT Browser to save the day! With the AOT Browser it is now possible to browse the objects in the AOT from the D365FO web interface. AOT Browser

Populate list of AOT objects

It is necessary to populate the list of AOT objects after installing AOT Browser. This is acheived by clicking the Populate AOT objects button. It is recommended to run this as a batch job as it can take several minutes to complete. It is also recommended to schedule the batch job with recurrance so that the list is up-to-date with all of the objects in the AOT.
