New 'unused parameters in local functions' CodeCop rule

The AL CodeCop currently only detects unused variables, both global and local. However, when a local function is created, containing function parameters that are not used, it would be interesting to have a CodeCop rule detecting these 'unused local function parameters' as well. More info on Gi...

Thank you for this suggestion!

We are supporting this in 2022rw2 with a new command to generate permission set as an AL object, al.generatePermissionSetForExtensionObjects.

When invoking, the developer can chose to create a new permission file or select an existing file to update. 

The previous functionality of creating a permissionset xml file is moved into the command al.generatePermissionSetForExtensionObjectsAsXml.

Thank you for this suggestion! This is now supported in upcoming 2022 release wave 2. You can already now experience it in insider VSIX builds.

When invoking IntelliSense for table fields, primary key members are now marked with a (PKx) in the IntelliSense list, where x is a sequential number indicating the order of the field in the key. This makes it easier to identify the table fields that make up the primary key as well as the sequency of these fields in the key.
