Business value

Reference documentation is an important part of a programming language. In this release we have increased coverage of auto-generated documentation for the AL language, ensuring that this reflects the latest changes and additions. Specifically, we are adding triggers and method attributes.

Feature details

AL reference documentation is used to look up documentation of types, method, and properties in the programming language. For many releases, this documentation has been handcrafted, which can lead to inconsistencies with the actual language. To ensure that the documentation reflects the language, entries will be auto-generated, and any additional content will be added manually afterward. This ensures full coverage and that the documentation better reflects the AL language as it evolves.
