I’m happy to announce that eight new diagnostics scripts are now included for AX2012 specific to GL and Budgeting that help identify data inconsistencies that cause issues for Management Reporter integrations. These scripts check for invalid data within General Ledger and Budgeting that can cause reports to be incorrect. Most of the invalid data in these diagnostics was found to be caused by imported data or data changed via SQL Server inserts, updates, or deletes.

Once you have a project, click on system diagnostic, and follow the steps on the admin page to get started. Diagnostics will run upon initial installation, and will continue to run on a regular scheduled basis.
Any issues found will show up on the dashboard. For any errors, you should contact the support team to determine the appropriate fix to prevent additional problems. The diagnostics will check for the following:
- You will receive a warning if any MainAccount doesn't have an account category assigned. This can cause incorrect values when using the default reports in Management Reporter.
- You will receive an error if an invalid Ledger value is assigned within a General Ledger or Budgeting transaction.
- You will receive an error if transactions are missing their header record within a General Ledger or Budgeting transaction.
- You will receive an error if a Budget Register transaction has an invalid dataarea assigned.
