For information on RoleTailored client settings files, see Configuring the RoleTailored Client.

Example

This command starts the RoleTailored client with a version of ClientUserSettings.Config that is not at the default location:

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -settings:"C:\AuxClientSettings\ClientUserSettings.config"

URL

Opens the RoleTailored client to a particular page or with a particular report.

Examples

This command starts the RoleTailored client and opens to page 21 (the Customer Card):

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe "DynamicsNAV://<Server/ServerInstance>/Company/RunPage?Page=21"

This command starts the RoleTailored client and opens the request page for report 101 (the Customer List):

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe "DynamicsNAV://<Server/ServerInstance>/Company/RunReport?Report=101"

This command runs the same report, assuming the default server, server instance, and company. This version runs from a browser instead of at a command prompt:

DynamicsNAV:////RunReport?Report=101

If you specify a Server and Server Instance, you must also specify a company. But you can specify a company without specifying a Server and Server Instance:

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe "DynamicsNAV:///Company/RunReport?Report=101"

-failurestacktrace

Sends the stack trace for the RoleTailored client to Windows Clipboard.
