This section describes how to create custom Help documentation and how to publish that documentation to the Microsoft Dynamics AX Help server. The Help documentation you create has to work with both the Help server and viewer.

  • The Help server is a centralized Web service that responds to requests for Help documentation. In addition, you put your custom Help documentation files on the Help server.

  • The Help viewer is an application that is deployed with the Microsoft Dynamics AX client. The Help viewer displays documentation when you request Help from the application workspace.
