Using an enhanced document service

In Dynamics AX, services can be exposed using basic or enhanced integration ports. Normally, simple services are exposed using basic ports. Conversely, enhanced ports are used in more complex scenarios. Enhanced ports offer additional capabilities compared to the basic integration ports. Enhanced ports can restrict returned data, execute complex pre-processing and post-processing rules, can be hosted on Internet Information Services, and so on.

In this recipe, we will demonstrate how to create and consume a document service using an enhanced integration port. We will use the document filtering feature of the enhanced port to restrict the range of data being exposed.
