How to: Create a MorphX Development Project

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

To create a project in Microsoft Dynamics AX, do as follows:

  1. Click View > Project > Project. This opens the Projects window, which has both Private and Shared projects.

  2. Right-click either the Private or the Shared node, click New, and then click Project to create a standard project or Test Project if you are using the Test Unit Framework.


    You can create your own project types by creating a class that extends the project node.

  3. Open the project by double-clicking it.

  4. Use a drag-and-drop operation to include objects from the AOT in the project. You can create new elements from within a project by using the New command on the shortcut menu.

  5. Save the project (it is automatically saved when the project window is closed).

  6. If you are using version control, add the object to the version control system. Private projects cannot be checked into version control.


If you delete an item from a project, the item is also deleted from the AOT. To delete an item from a project but not from the AOT, right-click the item, and then select Remove.


You can also create a project or add items to a project by using the project filter function Projects window.
