Integration Manager – Troubleshooting & Testing Tips: Dynamics GP Support & Services Blog

Highly informative post on Dynamics GP Support & Services blog on Common Tips and Issues when Troubleshooting and Testing Integrations in Integration Manager.

I have never read such an expansive post on Integration Manager (IM) ever. Mariano touches specific issues, David (and his technical team) on his blog shares specific topics. But this one’s so very expansive and one stop guide to IM issues and tips.

"Save As Integration" – Missing IM Option & Reason

Let me also pitch in and tell the world that this article, From the Newsgroups: What happened to Integration Manager “Save As” function?, from Mariano highlights what most people do not know about.

I was also one who wondered why it is not available, which I felt is a better option.

Read it and make sure that you learn the new way of doing copying an Existing Integration.

Thanks Mariano.


IM Error – Argument ‘Index’ is not a valid value.

I have been working on a Go-Live and been really hectic for the past 2 weeks.

Data Uploads, as usual, and suddenly this error was taking my entire energy. I thought I would blog this one issue which has got no mentioning in any of the forum(s) or KB as well.

I mapped and started integrating Sales Order transactions thru’ Integration Manager (IM). As soon as I started the integration, it threw the following error message:

Argument ‘Index’ is not a valid value.

No clue, absolutely. I searched this error message and got very VB.NET and C#.NET related posts. No idea whatsoever.

Verified my mappings, twice thrice, and everything looked OK. Or was that really OK? Nope.

I decided to do a Post-Mortem of my Integration Mapping again and found one silly error:

I forgot to select a Constant value for my “SOP Type” field. I was fiddling with the options, “Use Source Field” & “Use Constant”. And in due course somehow it just got cleaned up and no Constant value selected.

I selected the option “Use Source Field” and ran the integration. The error message vanished.


1. When you face this error for any integration, just make sure that you have selected proper Source Field or Constant Value for all Required and Primary Key field(s).
2. Read this article of mine: Little Bit of Philosophy. I myself falling into the same trap of being ignorant of very trivial things. Should be very careful henceforth.
